It seems like almost anyone these days can make an All-Star team. Heck, even Omar Infante made the cut in 2010 after posting an uncharacteristic .321 batting average (despite a park-adjusted 111 OPS+).

Below are six of the greatest players who never made an All-Star team despite enjoying productive careers and particularly elite individual seasons. Mind you, the All-Star Game wasn't created until 1933—so the likes of Ty Cobb and Cy Young are not eligible.
