Hollywood bit players on baseball cards: Part 28

Who played Sheriff Bender, here pulling a gun on a bad guy, in a 1960 episode of Wagon Train?

It's former Cardinals and Dodgers star Wally Moon! The 1954 NL Rookie of the Year, the outfielder played five seasons for the Cardinals and seven seasons for the Dodgers. While in Los Angeles he won three World Series rings and managed to land a guest spot on his children's favorite TV show. It would be his only acting credit, though game footage with Moon can be seen in the 1962 Lee Remick film Experiment in Terror.

I have three of Moon's cards.


  1. That had to be so cool for him to be on his kids favorite show

  2. It was impossible not to recognize him!

  3. I recognized the unibrow... but completely had a brain-fart and couldn't think of Moon's name.
