1911 D310 Pacific Coast Biscuit Overview
The 1911 D310 Pacific Coast Biscuit set featured minor leaguers from teams out west on, you guessed it, the Pacific Coast.
The set largely contains minor players – some of which made it to the major leagues. Easily the prize of the set, though, is Buck Weaver. Weaver is famous, of course, for his role on the 1919 Chicago Black Sox team. Banned with other members of the White Sox for the gambling scandal surrounding the 1919 World Series, his cards are in high demand.
There are a few other interesting players here and a few sought after cards by collectors. Overall, though, Weaver is by far and away the key to the set. In all, the six Pacific Coast League teams are included (Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, Sacramento, San Francisco, and Vernon) with 12 players from each squad represented.
Card fronts are printed in black and white and include a player image and name while the backs include a complete checklist of the entire set. In addition, backs also state that the set is presented by the Pacific Coast Biscuit Company.
