A short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: Samuel Earl Crawford was born in Wahoo, Nebraska, on April 18, 1880, hence the moniker that his teammates like to use: “Wahoo Sam.” 1899 is a year that Sam will remember well. Cincinnati in the senior circuit called him up to join the big time. He’s best known as a Detroiter now, having roamed Navin Field’s green pastures with Cobb for some time. He loves to hit triples, in his first year with Detroit he smacked 25 and led the league. Wahoo Sam is a full 6 feet tall and weighs 190 lbs.
