They put a few natives inside the town limits to make sure the transplants get along. We're like game wardens

Seriously though, no, I've never lived in the north. Interesting that the "CARY" acronym has become more than a local joke!

Basically, yes. Those three shattered the curve. Whether they played in 1960 or 2012, they were simply THAT much better than anyone else in the world. The talent pool in any given year consists of "everyone who is not Wayne, Mario or Bobby".

Of course, there's always the possibility that one of the early greats could have fit into that category, but it's practically impossible to find out.
