Description


Superlative circa late 1930s matte-finish 8 x 10 George Burke portrait of Foxx kneeling on the field in his Boston Red Sox uniform, gorgeously signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “Walter, my friend, may the best always be yours. Sincere wishes—Jimmie Foxx.” Reverse bears Burke’s “Geo. Burke, 847 Belmont Ave., Chicago” stamp on the reverse. In fine to very fine condition. Foxx is very scarce in signed photos of this size and quality, and Burke’s photos are of the utmost desirability among collectors—he is universally acknowledged as the one of the greatest baseball photographers of his day, with many of his images being used in the iconic Goudey baseball card sets of the early 1930s.
