The 1924 Giants were loaded with HOFers, however, this is the year the Senators won their only championship. These 12 HOFers played in both Games 1 and 7 of the 1924 World Series:

Senators-4: WaJo, Bucky Harris, Rice, & Goslin.

Giants-8: Fritsch, T. Jackson, Terry, Kelly, Youngs, Lindstrom, Hack Wilson, & Southworth.

Bill Terry
Freddie Linstrom

and they were managed by BOTH John McGraw and Hughie Jennings.

Looking up Giants WS games. Here's game 2 of 1923:

Dave Bancroft
Frisch
Youngs
Casey Stengel (!)
Kelly
Jackson
Babe Ruth
Herb Pennock

Okay, so no record there.

Bill James attributes Frankie Frisch's tenure on the Veterans Committee to the glut of Giants and Cardinals teammates who were elected. He was very loyal.

The Frisch Effect - from Wikipedia:

A number of years after Frisch left the playing field as a manager, he became a member of the Hall of Fame's Committee on Baseball Veterans, which is responsible for electing players to the Hall of Fame who had not been elected during their initial period of eligibility by the Baseball Writers; he later became chairman of the committee. In the years just prior to his death, a number of Frisch's Giants and Cardinals teammates were elected to the Hall; some notable writers, chiefly among them Bill James, have criticized these selections – including Jesse Haines, Dave Bancroft, Chick Hafey, Rube Marquard, Ross Youngs and George Kelly – which include some of the most widely questioned honorees in the Hall's history. Critics have complained that many of these selectees had accomplishments which were less outstanding than those of other players who were bypassed, and were only selected because of Frisch's influence.

I think the 1971 All Star Game may have set the record for HOFers.

That's the one perhaps most famous for Reggie Jackson's Blast off the light standard. Think I heard that on MLB Network a few years ago, FWIW.

All Star games probably did have more Hall of Famers but I was referring to regular season games.

I wonder which All Star game had the most. A better question would be whether there was any All Star game that had no Hall of Famers. I would have to be one in which none of the players are active anymore.
