no such a list does not exist, yet(?)

it's also not an easy / straighforward list to create and maintain, as
some projects don't produce ISOs, others don't release any binaries
(coreboot is such an example), yet others provide instructions how to
make their base system reproducible (NetBSD and FreeBSD) and so on and
so on, eg the Tails ISO is reproducible but some of it's parts are not yet

Also, there are less projects which have been verified
*independently*, repeatatly.

as other replied, there are others. And as I've tried to outline above, there
are several aspects to "reproducibility".

I think you'd need to come up with such a list yourself, and ideally in
a collaborative place ;)
