Original collection of (162) photographs of baseball players by the legendary George Burke of Chicago. All are high grade and with a few exceptions (maybe 5-10 stars of yesterday) they are all from the original negatives by Burke and would be considered "Vintage 1" or "Type 1" examples. Included are several Hall of Famers and big names like Jocko Conlan (early image), Tris Speaker and Kiki Cuyler on one group photo, Billy Herman, Al Simmons, Gabby Hartnett, Hooper-Speaker-Lewis (Red Sox Heavenly Outfield), Johnny Mize and Joe Medwick, Reds group photo with Lombardi, Earl Averill and Bill Dickey. There is a very rare photo of Negro leaguer Marte in Cuban Stars jersey and another 150 stars and commons in uniform. Among some of the other names that jump out at us are Jimmy Dykes, John Mostil, Jake Flowers, Phil Cavaretta, Woody English, Max Bishop, Sparky Adams, Ivy Andrews, Mark Koenig, Al Carrasquel, Ethan Allen, Roberto Estalella, Fred Fitzsimmons and Dale Alexander etc.
