Three 4" x 6" Burke photos offered here are indexed and stamped on the reverse with his 847 Belmont Avenue address in Chicago. One of the players is Gus Suhr, a first baseman for Pittsburgh 1930-39 and then for Philadelphia in 1939 and 1940.

The third player has the name “Homer Betts” on the back of his photo, which may be inaccurate. These photos have strong images and are nm. A 3.5” x 4.5” photo is stamped on the reverse with Burke's RDM Studio, and on the front, with "Burke and Brace Photo" and a N. Drake Avenue address. The player is Russ Bauers, who pitched for Pittsburgh 1936-41 and was among the N.L.’s better pitchers in 1937 and 1938. Ex. Also, a 3.5” x 5” color photo of Pep Young, an infielder, primarily a second baseman, for the Pirates 1933-40. Ex-m to nm. Winning Bid $45.
