    How about the 1932-1935 period, particularly 1932 and 1935? You have five Hall of Famers during that period - Mickey Cochrane, Bill Dickey, Gabby Hartnett, Ernie Lombardi, Rick Ferrell, plus a good hitting catcher in his prime in Spud Davis, plus good but light hitting catchers such as Al Lopez, Luke Sewell, and Gus Mancuso. Here's the average OPS+ during that four year period for some of these guys:

    Cochrane: 136
    Hartnett: 127
    Dickey: 125
    Davis: 125
    Lombardi: 122
    Ferrell: 102

    Even Al Lopez, had a 92 OPS+ during that period (compared to 83 for his career).

    Tettleton was still a part time catcher in '93.

    I consider 1979 the year of the catcher. Except for the stars who all seemed to have off years; all the offensive cathers peaked; the defensive specialist peaked too:

    Bench, Fisk, Munson (plane crash), Carter, Porter, Parrish, Downing, Tenace, Dale Murphy, Cerone, Sundberg, Simmons, Wynegar, Newman, Alexander, Boone, Ott, Stearn, Furgeson, Foote, Moore, Yeager, Ashby, Dempsey, May
