That crowd is insane. Is the photograph showing the line for autographs?

I am no expert on lightsabers, can you tell me about them? Are they reproductions? I was told by a photography collector that the original lightsabers were handles for flash photography back in the day.

That's the photo ops area but the autograph area was the exact same way.

In the original Star Wars, yes, they were made from photographic equipment (Graflex flash gun).

This site has a much better read on them than I can type:

Default Eddie Gaedel

Was lucky to snag this little gem , the back story is hilarious......

Gaedel was under strict orders not to attempt to move the bat off his shoulder. When Veeck got the impression that Gaedel might be tempted to swing at a pitch, the owner warned Gaedel that he had taken out a $1 million insurance policy on his life, and that he would be standing on the roof of the stadium with a rifle prepared to kill Gaedel if he even looked like he was going to swing. Veeck had carefully trained Gaedel to assume a tight crouch at the plate; he had measured Gaedel's strike zone in that stance and claimed it was just one and a half inches high. However, when Gaedel came to the plate, he abandoned the crouch he had been taught for a pose that Veeck described as "a fair approximation of Joe DiMaggio's classic style,"leading Veeck to fear he was going to swing. With Bob Cain on the mound - laughing at the absurdity that he actually had to pitch to Gaedel - and catcher Bob Swift catching on his knees, Gaedel took his stance. The Tigers catcher offered his pitcher a piece of strategy: "Keep it low." Cain delivered four consecutive balls, all high (the first two pitches were legitimate attempts at strikes; the last two were half-speed tosses). Gaedel took his base (stopping twice during his trot to bow to the crowd) and was replaced by pinch-runner Jim Delsing. The 18,369 fans gave Gaedel a standing ovation.

I see you just edited his Wikipedia page

Due to its scarcity, Gaedel's autograph now sells for more than Babe Ruth's
