George Burke was a sports photographer from the Chicago area; he was active for most of the first half of the 20th century. Burke is well known for many of his baseball images; some of which are easily recognizable by collectors today because they were used to create baseball cards during the 1930's.

Burke also produced football images, the most notable being of his hometown Chicago Bears. Offered here is a lot of seven of these images, all of which are team shots of the Bears. The 4" x 6" images are blank-backed with the exception of a stock/inventory number ink stamp. The stamp numbers will be noted for each photo in the detailed list below.

The following photos are included: 1934 Bears ("Western Champions" - same image as used for the 1935 National Chicle R311-2; number "5" on reverse), 1938 Bears ("2" on reverse), 1940 Bears ("National Champions"; "9" on reverse), 1941 Bears ("National Champions"; "2" on reverse), 1942 Bears ("8" on reverse), 1943 Bears ("World Champions"; "3" on reverse), 1946 Bears ("World Champions"; "D 5" on reverse).

Some notable players pictured on these photos include Red Grange, Bronko Nagurski, George Halas, Bill Hewitt, Walt Kiesling, Link Lyman, George Musso, Joe Stydahar, Bulldog Turner, Dan Fortmann, George McAfee, Sid Luckman, and Paddy Driscoll. This is quite a significant group from both a collectible and legacy standpoint...some of the greatest players in NFL history are featured on these photos; many of which are difficult to acquire on any sort of collectible item.
