    1946-50 Archibald "Moonlight" Graham Signed Postcards Lot of 2. The name Archibald "Moonlight" Graham may not conjure up memories of a Hall of Fame career, but his place in baseball history is secure. Moonlight appeared in only one Major League game but never quite got to settle into the batter's box. Rather, he was a late inning substitution who did get to play in the outfield but was left at the on-deck circle when the game reached its conclusion.

    Graham first gained a little notoriety in 1982 when he was incorporated into a character in the novel Shoeless Joe. Later, when Field of Dreams hit the silver screen, Graham became part of baseball lore. His journey is discussed in the must-see baseball classic. In the collecting world, signatures of Graham are all but impossible. He died in 1965 and wasn't recognized for realizing his Major League dream until the 1989 film. To date, there are only a handful of signatures from Graham. This listing includes two signed standard sized postcards. "Dr. Graham" signed the left side of both of these offerings. Each was sent from New York to Graham's hometown of Chisholm, Minnesota. The recipient is listed as "Blondie" and "Miss Blondie Tilla." Both signatures are 8/10 in quality. The postcard with a postmark of 1950 has some paper loss and a fold - away from the signature. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
