There's just so much to take from this. First, there is consensus on 144 players. One would think that those would be the 144 best players of all time. Well, one would be wrong. Here is a list of the top players (by wWAR/norm) who are not in all three Halls.
That's just those who appear in the Top 144 eligible players. Here, I obviously use "eligible" as meaning "retired for five years". Pete Rose and Shoeless Joe Jackson obviously are not eligible for the Hall of Fame.
I just can't believe we have a Top 50 player who is struggling to get in the Hall of Fame.
One thing that makes me quite happy about this visual is how much more in sync the Hall of wWAR is with the Hall of Merit than it is with the Hall of Fame. For example, the Hall of Merit contains just 26 players who are not in the Hall of wWAR. Meanwhile, the Hall of Fame contains 64 players who are not in the Hall of wWAR. Those two groups have an overlap of 15 players. Five of them (Ralph Kiner, Clark Griffith, Enos Slaughter, Roger Bresnahan, and Sam Thompson) rank among the Top 25 players outside of the Hall of wWAR.
In fact, 49 players appear in the Hall of Fame but not either of the others. Just 11 players appear only in the Hall of Merit while 17 players grace only the Hall of wWAR. That's a list I'm particularly interested in—the players enshrined by my Hall of wWAR, but not the others.
Here's another interesting table—the best players not in any of the Halls (the top 30):
What a list of excellent, somewhat forgotten players.
Update: I have tweaked this a bit because since I grabbed the data Rafael Palmeiro, David Cone, and Rick Reuschel were inducted to the Hall of Merit. (Thanks to @RAWagman)
