TDAG Acquires Rare Historic Baseball Image Collection


The Digital Archive Group recently acquired the assets and rights to the Brace / Burke photo collection comprised of over 225,000 historic baseball images.  Photographed by George Brace and George Burke, these original photographs were captured during baseball’s “Golden Era” from the late 1920’s – 1960. Recored on beautiful 4×5 and 5×7 negatives are the images of almost every player of every team of the era including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmy Foxx, Dizzy Dean, Ernie Banks and Joe DiMaggio. 

The previous owner of this collection intended to break it up and sell the collection piece by piece across the Internet and sports memorabilia auction houses.  The owner of The Digital Archive Group felt strongly that this image collection should be hand curated, digitized and offered exclusively to the individual baseball teams to facilitate the completion of their heritage rather than to be broken up and sold across the Internet. 

If you are the owner or representative of a MLB team, please contact us to schedule a preview of your collection.
