We report the preliminary results of a surface photometry survey of globular cluster cores. Two new cores with post-collapse morphology have been found, and two possible candidates. The estimated fraction of clusters with this core morphology in the Galaxy is only a few percent. Most clusters do not show a morphology similar to the predictions of the central black hole models.
