Anybody know who is on this list?

Of even if such a list really ever existed?

"McGraw died of an internal hemorrhage in New Rochelle, New York at age 60. Connie Mack would surpass McGraw's major league victory total just months later. After his death his wife found, among his personal belongings, a list of all of the African-American players he wanted to sign over the years, but was unable to."

"Another legend that may or may not be true is that when McGraw died his wife found a list amongst his possesions - the list was made up of Negro Leaguers that McGraw had wanted to sign. Whether or not these stories are true, they do point towards an attitude held in the Negro Leagues towards McGraw."
