Robert Baucomment was born in the Paris region, and began his professional career in the First Division, playing for Stade Français, who had just merged with Red Star in 1948. The following season, he signed for Sète, who were also playing in the top flight at the time, before returning to Stade Français for the 1950/1951 season. That season, he would score the first hat-trick of his career against a certain Stade Rennais, on 5th November 1950 in a 6-0 thrashing of the Red and Blacks. He was powerless, however, to stop his side being relegated to the Second Division, but then helped them to bounce back to the First Division, finishing Second Division Champions in 1952. He would stay another two seasons with Stade Français, before moving to Stade Rennais in the 1954/1955 season. First-choice in a Red and Black shirt from October 1954 onwards, he would score on his full debut, on Matchday 14 in the Second Division at Alès (2-3). He would remain a first-team regular on the left wing, and made 20 appearances, scoring four goals. He would not be retained at the end of the season by Rennes, however, and he dropped into amateur football, finishing his playing days with Longwy. He passed away on 12th December 1996, aged 70.
