The Greatest Player Ever?

From Ron Wargo, post #41 on the 1934 Ballot Discussion thread:

“Maybe this deserves its own thread.

Yeah, I think so.

It’s 1934, a perfect time to ask:

Who is the greatest player ever?

I begrudgingly say the greatest eligible is Ty Cobb. Many people will say Honus Wagner. Some might even say Walter Johnson. Any other candidates?

Of course, it being January 1934, I think one more player (although still active) had a good enough 1933 to top the career WS and WARP lists, and he likely has the best peak ever, so my vote goes for greatest player as of January ‘34 goes to:

Babe Ruth.”

Thanks for the idea Ron!
