Brief but yes. Eric was good. 1987 for the amount of games he played was a great year for Eric. I'll give a vote to Mantle overall.

I second Roberto Clemente. I think he was the best 5 tool player.

I'll throw some names on here that haven't been mentioned.

Kirby Puckett
Dave Winfield
Bo Jackson before the injury
Joe Dimaggio

Does anyone think that Rickey Henderson belongs on this list?

I agree on Puckett, DiMaggio, and Winfield (especially in the 1970's when he used his speed to steal bases). I was going to say Bo Jackson, but with a career avg of 250 and an OBP of 309...I think he was lacking 1 of the 5 tools.

You could make a case for Rickey, but I never really saw him as much of a power threat or superior defender. In fact his defense was pretty average at best for most of his career.

I know what you mean about Jackson. Unfortunately we will never know, but I think Bo would have improved his average enough to be considered.

I agree with you about Henderson's defense, but I think that he managed to win 1 Gold Glove.

I'm sure Rickey believed Rickey was a Six Tool Player. Thus making him ineligible for all five tool lists
