SABR

Batters who had at least 7 seasons with a OPS+ of 150 or higher

From SABR member Cyril Morong at Cybermetrics on December 10, 2011:

The PA minimum was 400. Here is the list of those 38 players. I highlighted Elmer Flick because he is the answer (or maybe an answer) to a trivia question: name a player who led the NL in RBI's and later went on to lead the AL in SBs. I don't think there are any others but I am not sure.

[Elmer] Flick was finally voted into the Hall of Fame in 1963 by the Veterans Committee. He was 87 but luckily still alive. He only got 0.4% of the vote from the writers in 1938 and that was it. In an 8 year period he had 7 top 10 finishes in WAR among position players including 5 in the top 5. Even now he ranks pretty high in career WAR (133rd) with 56.7. Through 1938, he was 36th. He had 9 top 10 finishes in OPS+ including 6 top 5 finishes and a first.
