Minnie Minoso was 54 years old in 1980, when he was brought back for TWO GAMES in a publicity stunt by the Chicago White Sox. Similarly, Satchel Paige (59), Charles O'Leary (58), Nick Altrock (57), and Jimmy O'Rourke (54) all played token amounts in games long after they retired.

Julio Franco, at age 49 in 2007, had 106 plate appearances before retiring the next year. Jack Quinn was 50 when he was still pitching on a regular basis in 1933. So, to me, the answer would be Julio Franco UNLESS you count token appearances for purely publicity purposes.
