I'd take Collins. He played later and still raked. The guy led the league in stolen bases at 37 years old. I think he would have been a star in any era whereas I think Lajoie's career is a product of his era, though who knows all those doubles he hit might have been bombs 10 years later.

Didn't want to start a new thread for this, but since people have mentioned Hornsby, I'll share an interesting thing I read today. If you're a Phillies fan, stop reading now.

The Phillies had three players holding out for more money in early March of 1917. They were Bert Niehoff, Possum Whitted and Milt Stock. There were talks of trading those three players (two separate deals) and taking on more salary while picking up Dots Miller, Rogers Hornsby and Zack Wheat.

I have a feeling if those deals happened as rumored, the Phillies wouldn't have gone almost 100 years before their first World Series title
