Description

    1910's Napoleon Lajoie Original News Photograph by Louis Van Oeyen, PSA/DNA Type 1. Louis Van Oeyen rose from staff photographer of The Cleveland Press in the opening years of the twentieth century to prominence as the official photographer of the American League, documenting almost all of the greats of the first fifty years of the 1900's in his artful and distinctive style. Any Van Oeyen work carries a significant premium among baseball photography collectors, particularly those bearing his personal stamp on verso, as this specimen does.

    Obverse is a charming portrait of the man whose name was literally synonymous with Cleveland baseball. Borderless shot measures 7x9", with minor edge wear and a lower left corner bend. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

    The way you grouped lots, photographed, and presented the material was too notch. I was impressed that you took the time to attribute coins to the Krause reference as their "plate coin" and that many of your descriptions included pertinent facts and infor
