Default Rank your favorite 90s players

Who doesn’t like a good ranking? There is no wrong answer here, it is solely your own personal collecting desire regardless of reason. Personally, my desire has changed over the years, mostly because of card design and image selection and some of it is because the legacy of certain players seem to stand the test of time more than others. Here is where my top 5 stands today, it will be cool to look back at this in 10 years and see if it changes again. Will also do this for 70s and 80s players.

1. Ken Griffey Jr.
2. Bo Jackson
3. Frank Thomas
4. Derek Jeter
5. Deion Sanders

I'm narrowly interested in the Cincinnati Reds. So my list is focused as such:
1) Barry Larkin
2) Ken Griffey Jr
3) Derek Jeter
4) Aaron Boone

Paul Konerko! Once a Reds prospect. Super bummed we traded him away, but Sean Casey was pretty good for a number of years. But Konerko....he just seemed like a decent guy.

Ken Griffey
Frank Thomas
Greg Maddux
Albert belle
Tony Gwynn


Also love Bo Jackson I used his glove until it literally fell apart. But I like him more for football and didn’t see him but through the 90s.

I know Albert belle is not liked by most but I loved to watch him play lol.

May 1, 1991 - At age 44, Nolan Ryan's 7th No-Hitter! I remember watching the news on TV when all of a sudden the news stopped, instead went to live coverage of the Ryan game. The whole nation saw Ryan close out his record 7th No-Hitter on national TV. Awesome!

Most of my time spent on baseball was pre-lockout/strike so my memories are weighted in the first part of the decade.

I'd say for active players in the 90s, I was chasing after Mike Piazza, Juan Gonzalez, Frank Thomas, Albert Belle, Greg Maddux.

Runners Up include: Bonds, Lofton, Baerga, J. Carter, Sheffield, Fielder, McGriff.

Nobody mentioned Vladdy Daddy. Started too late in the decade to justify selection? Was there a better all-around hitter during his era?

As an Expos fan, I’ll back that up.

Also I’ll add:
Larry Walker
Moises Alou
Marquis Grissom
Pedro Martinez

I must admit I did not read this properly the first time. My original list was what I consider the top 5 and 3 pitchers of the decade.

My personal favorite would be

1 Griffey
2 Nolan Ryan
3 Frank Thomas
4 Pedro Martinez
5 Bo Jackson
