Near Infrared (tex2html_wrap_inline2034 band) surface photometry has been obtained for 102 (88 late-type) Virgo cluster galaxies. A subset of 20 galaxies was also imaged in the H band. Magnitudes and diameters within the 21.5 and 22.0 mag arcsectex2html_wrap_inline2038  isophote, concentration indices and total H and K' magnitudes are derived. Basic statistical properties of a complete sample of spiral galaxies spanning the range tex2html_wrap_inline2044 are given.gif
