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 – 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 approx. 16″ x 20″, they are indeed devised from the original negatives, and guarantee the utmost in aesthetic display.
These posed Yankees went on to defeat the Cardinals in the 1928 World Series. Readers familiar with the roster will immediately identify Babe Ruth, Tony Lazzeri, rookie Bill Dickey, Miller Huggins and Leo Durocher. Serialized “130/975”, and NM condition.
