In the New York Evening Journal‚ 80's player-manager Sam Crane picks his all-time greatest list‚ in response to a list that Charles Comiskey compiled. Crane graciously faults Comiskey for not including himself‚ as well as for not going back far enough. He lists 20 in chronological order: George Wright‚ R. Barnes‚ Cap Anson‚ Mike Kelly‚ Charley Radbourn, Fred Dunlap‚ Buck Ewing‚ John Ward‚ Charles Comiskey‚ Bill Lange‚ John McGraw‚ Nap Lajoie‚ Fred Clarke‚ Honus Wagner‚ Wee Willie Keeler‚ Jimmy Collins‚ Christy Mathewson‚ Hal Chase‚ Ty Cobb‚ and Eddie Collins.
