    1930's Melvin Ott Signed Photograph by Burke. Another masterwork by George Burke, whose photographs continue to escalate in value with every passing year. This example is quite clearly a cut above the rest due to the 8/10 vintage ink inscription from the subject, reading, "To Roy From Melvin Ott." Knowledgeable collectors will understand how tough and desirable Ott signed photos are, and particularly those with the full first name rather than the standard "Mel." And, of course, the Burke pedigree (complete with stamping on verso), makes this one extra special. Several holes in the photo must be noted, but all but one (which has been rather effectively repaired) could quite easily be matted out for display. LOA from PSA/DNA.
