We report the preliminary results of a CCD surface photometry survey of a large fraction of all known Galactic globular clusters. About 1/5 of all surveyed clusters show a characteristic post-core-collapse (PCC) morphology. The PCC clusters are on average closer to the Galactic center than the King-model–like clusters.
