Bonds was the oldest in the 700 club; Ruth the youngest, I think. (Rodriguez was the youngest to hit 500 as well as 600, but if you only count those who never made it to 600, then Jimmy Foxx is the next youngest to hit 500)

Tim Zinnecker

700: Ruth the youngest (39/150), then Aaron (39/166), followed by Bonds (40/55)

600: stated that Rodriguez was the youngest

500: Rodriguez also the youngest

Oldest to 500?
Oldest to 600?

The more impressive stat (to me, anyway) is not age, but number of games to reach the milestone. Maybe that's a question for another day.
