While NBA teams drafting players straight from high school was common in the 1990s and 2000s before being prohibited, Moses Malone was the first player to jump directly from high school to the professional ranks. After starting his career with the Utah Stars of the ABA in 1974, Malone eventually made his way to the Houston Rockets and the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA. It was during this ten-year period that Moses Malone enjoyed his best years, notching three league MVPs, one Finals MVP and one NBA title. Malone also added 12 straight All-Star selections from 1977-78 to 1988-89 and played for ten ABA/NBA teams during his 21-year career.

Given his long career, Moses Malone has a good amount of cards from his active playing days. Starting with 1975-76, collectors can chase Malone's cards from three different decades. The earliest autographs came in in the 1990s, not long after his retirement. Although he signed regularly after that, his autograph cards appear to have stopped after 2011-12 products. The first Moses Malone memorabilia cards came in the 2000s.
