Player Types I value
HOF icons - players etched in history and in the lore of baseball - Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle, Sandy Koufax, Babe Ruth, et al.

Exclusive clubs - players etched in history, belonging to exclusive numerical clubs -George Brett, Eddie Murray, et al.

HOF legends - guys who made their mark on the game and enshrined to the Hall of Fame because of it.

Future HOF icons/legends - already have established their credentials as retired players or are still active players towards the end of their careers.

Superstars - players that are at the height of their popularity - Vladimir Guerrero, Derek Jeter, Manny Ramirez and Alex Rodriguez. Some players deemed superstars do not have the statistics (or particularly) or the longevity to ascend to being future HOF icons/legends, but it can be said that in the prime, they were at the top of the heap.

Award Winners - players etched in history as having individual seasons worthy of the MVP, Cy Young or Rookie of the Year awards.

Rising Stars and Prospects - typically regional players from my home team and top prospects everyone is bound to know.

Semi/minor stars - regional favorites from my home team as well as selected other players who have starred in Major League Baseball for 10-15 seasons.
