    1926 Babe Ruth's Hands Original Photograph by Louis Van Oeyen, PSA/DNA Type 1. The hands that launched 714 home runs are the subject of this intriguing study by renowned lensman Louis Van Oeyen, a variation on a Charles Conlon theme of super-close-ups that turn the athlete into a work of art. The black circle around Ruth's hands suggest that this detail once appeared in a period publication. Verso bears Van Oeyen's stamp, a handwritten notation and a "Sept 21 1926" date stamp. Dimensions are 8x6.5". Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Type 1.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $3,000 - up.
