Capture the essence of depression-era baseball with this quartet of George Burke photos, each of which features a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. These approximately 5x7 black bordered keepsakes are free of reverse stampings or studio markings. Neat pencil marked identifiers are placed atop the upper edge of each blank reverse. Subjects include 1.) Foxx (near identical image to the 1934 Batter-Up #144 high number); 2.) Gehringer (same image as 1939 Play Ball #50); 3.) Manush and 4.) McKechnie. The surfaces are crease-free, while the perimeters exhibit superficial wear. Also present are three sepia versions for each player with exception to McKechnie.
