Help With JFK's Baseball Cards

To the Purple Row Community,

I have organized all of my baseball cards in an interesting fashion. For every player who has ever put on a Colorado Rockies uniform I have separated into a set of Rockies Only binders. This includes cards of the players who have played for teams other than the Rockies (ie. cards of Craig Counsell in Marlins, Diamondbacks, and Brewers uniforms are all together in the Rockies 2B binder). For non-Rockies players I have sorted them alphabetically and by team they are playing for at the time the card was produced. All of my Helton cards are in two binders a 5" and a 2.5".

Where I'm looking for help is I have separated some of the best players for the last 25 years (since I've been collecting and don't have many from 1985 or before of top players) and I want to know if you, the Purple Row community, think I am missing someone or if someone should be removed. I've included a table in alphabetical order of the players I currently have separated below. Some of these players I separated when I was about 10 and I'm wondering if they should be kept. Some of the players I've added recently because they have played so well but I'm not sure they belong due to lack of longevity. I think there are couple players that could be added but for some reason I have forgotten them (for now). Please let me know what you think in the comments.

I would like to point out that this is not about the Hall of Fame but instead about the players that you would consider the best and would probably pay to see play regardless of the team they were playing for.
