Lately alot has been said about the poor choice of players being inducted into the Hall of Fame. However, the HOF got it right with its inaugural induction in 1939:
The Baseball Hall of Fame opened in Cooperstown, New York, one summer day in 1939 with its first class of inductees. From left to right, they are as follows: (seated) Eddie Collins, Babe Ruth, Connie Mack, and Cy Young; (standing) Honus Wagner, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Tris Speaker, Napoleon Lajoie, George Sisler, and Walter Johnson. Missing is Ty Cobb, the only inductee to gather more votes than Ruth.

Now that is what I would call a worthy inductee list!
