In the early 1990s, the St. Louis-based Megacards commenced releases of card issues under licenses secured to reproduce vintage baseball photos. Among these were those copyrighted by Francis P. Burke whose originals date to the early 20th Century. As an ambitious departure from the company’s standard card issues, Megacards sponsored the production of limited edition enlargements for several of the images – pan style=”FONT-WEIGHT: bold”>all of them generated individually from their original glass negatives. The merit of these renderings derives, in part, on their numeric serialization. (But none of these, we’re told, ever approached the completion of their serialization.) Of greater import, though, is their high-energy subject matter – then fully enhanced by the quality fiber-base material by which they’re delivered. Borne on the most advanced technology of the day, these enlargements project a quality of detail that maintains utmost clarity – with not a hint of “grainy” compromise. All measuring 19 1/2″ x 15 3/4″, they are indeed devised from the original negatives, and guarantee the utmost in aesthetic display.
The original photograph generating this print is likely (but not absolutely) attributable to Francis Burke. This one images the 1913 New York Giants – pennant winners that season. Readily identified are Rube Marquard (seated second from left), Christy Mathewson and John McGraw. We also note the inclusion of Wilbert Robinson who briefly coached for McGraw, before their falling-out. Serialized “59/100”, NM/MT.
