    1930's-40's Signed Photographs by George Burke Lot of 35 with DiMaggio, McCarthy. The most celebrated baseball photographer of the pre-war years provides thirty-five fantastic 4x6" images, each signed in vintage fountain pen by the subject. Most are minor figures in baseball history, but a pair of New York Yankees legends stand out from the pack. Classic Joe DiMaggio image was used for the 1941 Play Ball card, but appears here in original black and white with early format autograph. Joe McCarthy personalizes his image to a fan and adds "1943" date. Other names include Harry Gowdy, Fred Schulte, Sam West and Jimmy Ripple. Signatures average 8/10 and better. Photos average EX, with all but a few featuring Burke stamping on verso. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
