To put it another way, almost everyone has the internet. If you want a detailed history on a player or an era, you can look it up. It's easy to punch in "Ed Delahanty" and find that he died after either jumping or falling into Niagra Falls. But, IMO, the HOF should be a place that gives you a "feel" for history without crushing you with the minutiae. You want 8 thru 88 to enjoy it. I think a bloated HOF supresses fun like a 10 page handbook you had to read before playing your favorite video game.
