George Burke Reproductions of Dead Ball Era Photographs Lot of 34. The legendary Depression-era baseball photographer Burke reprinted some of the greatest photos of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century game at some time in the 1930's or 1940's, and we provide a selection of those shots here, each stamped "Reproduced by Geo. Burke, 847 Belmont Ave., Chicago, Ill" on verso. Each photo measures 4x6" and presents in average EX-MT to NRMT condition. A sampling of the legends pictured: Grover Cleveland Alexander, Dan Brouthers, Ed Delahanty, Addie Joss, Willie Keeler, Jack Chesbro, Christy Mathewson, Iron Joe McGinnity, Eddie Plank, Rube Waddell and Walter Johnson. Burke's darkroom mastery is in clear evidence, the images bursting to life over a century after they were snapped.
