The Iron Horse? Check. George Burke behind the camera? Check. Young fans? Check. Thus, three of the most desirable qualities of 1930s negatives are resplendent in this crystal-clear acetate example—which precisely spans Burke's familiar dimensions of 5x7. The legendary Chicago photographer became the Cubs' official shutterbug in 1929, and later teamed up with partner George Brace in an epic quest to create a complete portfolio of all major-league players. NM central image area with the typical light peripheral wear of vintage studio-used negatives. Acquired in a 2013 auction of the George Burke/George Brace Original Negatives Collection.
