    "Showing the keen eye of Ted Williams"

    1942 Ted Williams Type I George Burke Photograph.
    Two of the best in their respective fields, each behind a lens, teamed up for the creating of this masterpiece. The crystal clear Type I image, shot by George Burke shows a young Ted Williams peering through a video camera sometime during the 1942 campaign. Measuring 8x10", with typical rounded corners, shows light-to-moderate war on the front. The reverse has "Showing the keen eye of Ted Williams. Boston Red Sox 400 hitter. 1941 average 406. League leading hitter. 37 home runs gave him those honors." in green ink and the light purple "Geo. Burke, Photo. 847 Belmont Ave. Chicago" stamp.

    A nearly identical photo sold in November of 2017 for $1,610.
