The Duke and The Babe

Duke Kahanamoku and Babe Ruth
Waikiki - Oahu, HI (October 1933)
This is one of the coolest photos I have ever seen.  The two most iconic athletes in their sport are standing front of a outrigger canoe on Waikiki Beach with Diamond Head off in the distance.  There is one copy of this photo known to exist in the world that was autographed by both men.  It was sold last February by Heritage Auctions for over $10,000.
