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 is a two page document dated 12/26/40 which appears on “Geo. Burke” letterhead and is signed by George Brace a long-time associate photographer who worked with 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.
