With such a rich history and so many different eras that exist in stark contrast of each other, baseball lends itself to some great arguments.

One of the best and longest-running arguments fans like to get involved with revolves around the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.

There are a lot of players who are on the outside looking in, despite being superior to some players who are already enshrined.

Some players are kept out because of their temperament, some didn't have a long enough peak and others are just totally underappreciated.

This slideshow ranks the top 100 players who are eligible for Hall of Fame induction, but they currently do not have that plaque in Cooperstown.

There were two main rules in making this slideshow.

First, a player had to play a majority of their games in the 1900s.  Second, a player has to be eligible for induction. You won't find Pete Rose, Shoeless Joe or Eddie Cicotte on this list.

Also of note here, because this is the era in which we live, the steroids issue must be addressed.

In making this list, players were not penalized for admitting steroid use or rumored steroid use.  There just is no way to pick and choose who definitely did use steroids, who didn't and just what kind of impact they had on their play.

That being said, here are the top 100 eligible players not in the MLB Hall of Fame.
