Default Signed Van Oeyen photos

This 1908 Van Oeyen photo of Elmer Steele is a recent pickup. I believe it originated from Steele's estate in the early 2000's. Signed by Van Oeyen (L. Van Oeyen / Cleveland O. / 09), it must have been a presentation piece from Van Oeyen to Steele. The photo also has an early Van Oeyen stamp on the reverse.

Anyone else have photos signed by Van Oeyen? Looking around I can find only two others similarly signed on the front, a Cobb and a Lajoie.

The writing in blue ink is Steele's, probably late in life. The 'Hot Springs' notation would be a mis-remembering as the photo looks almost certainly to have been taken at League Park, Cleveland.

I've never seen one, but have to say that you have an absolutely terrific photo there.
