    "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

      That's all I've been able to find too. I have the partial list compiled here: http://www.baseball-reference.com/bu...22_Karam_Award. But I wonder if there are any that are missing.

        I keep reading that Tumminia won it in '05.

          For those interested, I acquired a full list of recipients from a helpful NY Post writer who goes to the dinner where this award is given out. He sent along a scan of a pamphlet with the previous winners. A full list can be found here:
