I think the first five should be the inaugural HOF Class:

1. Ruth
2. Cobb
3. Wagner
4. Johnson
5. Young

Then, not necessarily in this order

6. Young
Ryan,

Just to clarify, is number 5 Cy Yound and number 6 Irv Young?

And Monte Ward as a player and labor leader. Dihigo as one of the dominant pitchers amongst his contemporaries

How about interesting but not necessarily great players?

Bill Bergen - probably the worst player to have a long career
Jim Creighton - sort of a proto-Sandy Koufax
Lefty O'Doul - great player for a short time, and hugely influential in Japan

Edited to add:

Buzz Arlett - minor league superstar
Lip Pike - pro baseball's first homerun champ

Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb have enough cards (fantasy and otherwise) already, and it doesn't take any knowledge or real appreciation of baseball to make more of them. We've got lots of people here who know a lot about the history of baseball, let's use it to make some interesting cards.

Yikes!! Nice catch. I meant Matty at 5 and CY Young at 6. To me, Irvs only Claim to fame is fronting as CY on the E98s, and thats not net54-card-worthy

yeah, 54 players makes it tough...I will just let this discussion keep rolling. It is interesting to me to see some of the various names. The knowledge on this board continues to impress me, and seeing some of these more obscure names and some background on them has made me google search a bit.

Keep em coming
