    First there were a lot more than just 10 colonies.

    I'll give you the top 10 from Canada, as that is where I live.

    Furs, of all kinds. For clothing and hats. Beaver, wolf, buffalo, elk,, otter, and ermine.

    Fish, salted , and dried, in barells.

    Lumber, cut and logs. Elm, oak, pine, cedar, birch , walnut, cherry.

    Coal.

    Gold, silver, tin, iron, copper, and zinc.

    Wheat, and other grains.

    Potatoes, and other vegetables, in barells, and fresh, in bags.

    Manufactured goods, like machinery for farms, and industrial uses.

    Leather goods, like horse harness, shoes and boots.

    Paper goods, and newsprint rolls.

    These are both raw, and finished goods, obviously.
