Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner's hit record -- but who was better?

With his single in the 1st inning against the Indians on Friday night (even if it was aided a tad by some porous Indians defense), Derek Jeter did something very special:

He tied the great Honus Wagner for sixth all-time in hits. 

But just who was better? The Flying Dutchman or Mr. November? That's a question we hope to answer now:

Jeter vs Wagner
