Ted Williams would have to be the one, if I could only pick one (best all-around player), but the true fan in me says without hesitation Harmon Clayton Killebrew, in my opinion (not everyone else's) he is the best to not win a World Series.

One could also throw Ernie Banks into this discussion.

I'd add Robin Yount to the list. One of four players ever to win the MVP at two different positions.

Banks never made the Series. He never even made the playoffs as I recall. They finally had their chance in '69 but limped to the finish and lost to the Mets.The few. The proud. The Met fans.
1969 Mets 31/31- It took 3 1/2 years but it's finished! Thanks to those who helped!
Mets/ Giants/Knicks/Rangers/Chelsea/ Rutgers!

I thought of Ernie right off the bat myself, but he'd already been selected.
So, you could add Billy Williams to that list (The A's won it all in '74. He became an A in 1975. Just missed it)
Ron Santo is another.
Like Williams, Fergie Jenkins just had bad timing. The Red Sox made it to the Series in 1975. He joined 'em in 1976.
How about Ryne Sandberg? One of the best second basemen of all-time.
