Classic images, impeccable composition and lush sepia tones are the characteristics displayed in this lot of (184) original George Burke 4x6 baseball photos and (2) letters. Highlights are: Altrock, Bender, Bottomley, Cochrane, Combs, Cuyler, D. DiMaggio, V. DiMaggio, Durocher, Ferrell, Frisch, Gomez, Goslin, Herman, Hornsby, T. Jackson, Keller, Klein, Lazzeri, Leonard, Lindstrom, Lopez, Luque, Lyons, Manush, Martin, Mize, Ott, Pennock, J. Sewell, Simmons, Slaughter, Vance. Note: All proceeds will be donated to PALS: People Assisting the Lodi Shelter--a non-profit animal rescue. More on our website.

All included photos bear a reverse side “Geo. Burke” address stamp. These vintage photographs show average VG-EX to EX-MT details with deference to reverse side album residue, which has negligible impact on the matte finish obverse images.

Also present are (2) letters (average VG) that were the property of the original owner of this collection John Herbert Anderson. One dated 12/26/40 appears on “Geo. Burke” letterhead and is signed by Burke; the other is on “New York Giants/National Exhibition Company” letterhead dated 7/3/40. The Giants letter is printed with the name of then team manager William H. (Bill) Terry as part of the header and is signed by team secretary E.T. (Eddie) Brannick.
