Welcome Vendor Bruce Murray Collection

Check out our unique vendor Bruce Murray Collection! 
Since 1991, Shawn Murray, the grandson of Bruce Murray, Sr., has been printing, publishing and marketing his grandfather's photo artwork.  For over four decades, "The Master" photographer, Bruce Murray, Sr. (1893-1969) has captured amazing images of sports legends, historical figures and Americana.  Mr. Murray truly loved his work and was a founding father and president of the Philadelphia Press Photographers Association.  He passed on his skill and photography to his grandson, Shawn (almost Bruce III).   Shawn has proudly preserved the provenance and his family legacy and committed his life to publishing his grandfather's work.  Shawn prints these photographs directly from the original glass plate negatives that were handed down to him.
Bruce Sr.'s work was included in the Sports Illustrated book "20th Century Sports - Images of Greatness," and has been featured nationally on the Yes Network and Fox Television networks.  The photos have been auctioned at many charity events for such organizations as the Red Cross, ALS, Alzheimer's Assn., Aids Coalition and M.S. Society.  The photos are part of the permanent collections of such institutions as the Thomas Edison Museum, the Babe Ruth Museum, the Franklin Institute and the International Boxing Hall of Fame.  They are part of the private collections of many notables such as Reggie Jackson, Tom Hanks, Larry King, Gary Sinise, Les Paul and John Goodman.  Homegrown collectors include former Phillies Larry Christensen and Don Money, and Phila. D.A. Lynn Abraham.  Shawn is always happy to speak on behalf of his grandfather’s work.
