The best SF anthology ever was The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, Volume One edited by Robert Silverberg and published in 1970. It's not available as an ebook. (The Science Fiction Hall of Fame by Robert Silverberg at Fictionwise is apparently a short story).

These are all stories that pre-dated the Nebula Awards and were chosen by the SFWA.

Stanley G. Weinbaum - "A Martian Odyssey" 1934
John W. Campbell - "Twilight" 1934
Lester del Rey - "Helen O’Loy" 1938
Robert A. Heinlein - "The Roads Must Roll" 1940
Theodore Sturgeon - "Microcosmic God" 1941
Isaac Asimov - "Nightfall" 1941
A. E. van Vogt - "The Weapon Shop" 1942
Lewis Padgett - “Mimsy Were the Borogoves” 1943
Clifford D. Simak - “Huddling Place” 1944
Fredric Brown - “Arena” 1944
Murray Leinster - “First Contact” 1945
Judith Merril - “That Only a Mother” 1948
Cordwainer Smith - “Scanners Live in Vain” 1948
Ray Bradbury - “Mars is Heaven!” 1948
Cyril M. Kornbluth - “The Little Black Bag” 1950
Richard Matheson - “Born of Man and Woman” 1950
Fritz Leiber - “Coming Attraction” 1950
Anthony Boucher - “The Quest for Saint Aquin” 1951
James Blish - “Surface Tension” 1952
Arthur C. Clarke - “The Nine Billion Names of God” 1953
Jerome Bixby - “It's a Good Life” 1953
Tom Godwin - “The Cold Equations” 1954
