Buck's Bio

HELP CELEBRATE BUCK O'NEIL'S 100TH BIRTHDAY!

DONATE $100 for Buck's 100th AND BECOME A MEMBER OF
THE BUCK O'NEIL ALL-CENTURY TEAM!

The charismatic John "Buck" O'Neil was an American hero. His eloquence, grace and genuine love for people captured the hearts and imaginations of kindred spirits worldwide. Buck co-founded the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) in 1990 and served as the museum's chairman for 16 years until his death in 2006. His illustrious baseball career spanned seven decades and helped make him a foremost authority and arguably the game's greatest ambassador.

Buck would turn 100 on Nov. 13! To commemorate the milestone, the NLBM has created a once-in-a-century opportunity! From now until Dec. 31, you can become a member of the BUCK O'NEIL ALL-CENTURY team by simply making a donation of at least $100. When you do, a plaque with your name, or a person you designate, will be permanently displayed at the NLBM!

BUCK BONUS: In addition to your plaque, the first 1,000 people to donate will receive a FREE lithograph of this Buck O'Neil Hall of Fame cartoon created and autographed by award-winning Kansas City Star cartoonist Lee Judge. Just add $10 to your total to cover shipping & handling!


"If I'm a Hall of Famer in your eyes that's all that matters to me! Just keep lovin' ole Buck!"
(Print size is approximately 11"x 8.5")
