Extremely well thought of player in his day and was in the first batch of electees by the VC. Played in an era when catchers didn't catch everyday. Very versatile player who could play a number of position. Generally considered one of the best players of the 19th Century.

Yes, only because Bill James tells a story of Honus Wagner that starts with great feats and ends with fans saying Hans is the best they have seen since Ewing....
