Buck Weaver


The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: “Buck” was born in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, on August 18, 1890. He was only 17 when he caught on with the nearby Mount Carmel club of the Atlantic League in 1908. He didn’t play the next year but in 1910 took up ballplaying for good. His first big break came when signed with the San Francisco Seals of the P.C.L. in 1911. It was all the way on the other side of the country but the 20 year old did good, playing in 182 games and batting .282. The next season was in the big leagues with the White Sox and he’s been a regular ever since. His average has gotten better every year for the past four; last season he batted .331.
