The De-saturation of the Hall of Fame
The Hall of Fame has named 10 finalists for the pre-integration ballot for the consideration of induction in 2013. Six are players, three are executives and one is an umpire. They are Samuel Breadon, Bill Dahlen, Wes Ferrell, Marty Marion, Tony Mullane, Hank O’Day, Alfred Reach, Jacob Ruppert, Bucky Walters and Deacon White. I have heard of six of these guys. How many have you heard of? Wouldn't people need to know your name in order for you to be "famous"? I think there are many players in the Hall now who are not "Hall-worthy".

Some of these guys had special moments and even a couple of special seasons but none of them had truly remarkable careers. Mediocre at best in my opinion. Maybe it just doesn't sit well with me as I collect Hall of Fame players and here's a bunch of less than stellar players that I am going to have to add to my collection. I can think of other players more deserving.

I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.
