      More correctly BOTH came from the same original negative.

      Jackson's professional playing ended in 1920 when he was banned (although he did play on semi pro teams after that time), so this photo most probably pre- dates 1920.

      Burke didn't become a sports photographer until 1929. This appears to be a copy of an earlier image, supported by the "reproduced by" label.

      Here is information on the photographer:

      In sports photos, most demand is for TYPE 1 images-- those that are actually produced from the original negative within 2 years (approx) of the original. At best your image would be a TYPE 2 (from original negative, produced more than 2 years AFTER the original).

      Since Jackson is desirable and the photographer's work is desirable, your image would still be collectible.
