Cochrane over Freehan?
Verlander, or Morris, over Newhouser?

Great as he was, Cochrane was only a Tiger for a couple years, so I didn't think he belongs on the all-time team. And there are about 5 or 6 pitchers who could carry the torch for the D, but I'm sticking with Newhouser.

He was phenomenal during the mid 40s but it seems he had an awful lot of mediocre or even bad years. From more of a distance than you, he would not be my first choice.

Default prefer no debates on this thread

Whatever is posted is personal choice - as stated in original post - it is a combination of the quality of the player and equal or more importantly the quality/desirability of the card - It's awesome to see the variation already in the number of people who have responded - great picks by all. No need to defend your picks - they are yours! Let's see some more!

I'll offer a post war team especially as we don't have many pics here. Ted is DH.

Here's my lineup. Went only with cards in my collection. Put Mantle at 1B, Aaron at DH and Ted Williams at manager.

Well OK to keep this going here is my second team post-war. Reggie at DH after Martin pulls him from the outfield.
