    Gonna guess zero for the first, and going to say 57 for the post 2010 era?

    This Hall of Famer was named to only three All-Star teams, the fewest of any Hall of Famer who debuted after the inception of the game in 1933.

    I know it, but in the interest of not being a know it all, I won’t say it.

    I admire your restraint. I wouldn't exhibit it myself :)

    The answer is 94 by 2010 and 117 since.

    I don't remember the exact numbers recited, but it was like one game in the 1940s, and three each in the 50s and 60s.

    Nope. It's a position player. That's a damn fine guess, though.

    no it does not. He made six All-Star teams, btw.

    I will say that this guy only being in three all star games is not indicative of him being some lesser Hall of Famer.
    Answer was Aaron Pointer, who yes is the brother of the Pointer sisters.
