While its not in very good shape, this is a very difficult Thorpe postcard to find so I snagged it. Carlisle, PA held a celebration for Thorpe and Tewanima when they returned from the Olympic games and these were distributed to advertise the event. Note that the postmark on the PC is the date of the event which I think it pretty cool!





From the description, it sounds like they had quite an event!

Awesome pick up. Jeff. I saw it on eBay, and was watching it. I am a Thorpe fan, so I have always liked that postcard. One of the items at the top of my want list is the postcard also produced to commemorate Thorpe returning to Carlisle after winning the Decathlon and Pentathlon that shows him putting the shot. I have lost out on a couple of auctions for that one in recent years.

Thanks Eddie. Good card for the want list! This PC might be more difficult but the one with Thorpe doing the shot put is definitely more popular and a very cool card. Like that one a lot.

I had these out tonight, so I thought I would snap a pic. 1905 Ullman Postcard with artwork by F. Earl Christy. The Tilton is a knockoff from 1908. I'd like to upgrade the Chicago, but it rarely comes up for sale. Someday I might break down and add the Harvard, even those it's a lowly baseball image!

Those are great! Football items from that decade seem few and far between.

My first prewar football. I love the T51 Murad set, so I decided to collect the football cards. There are 6 football cards, but the Michigan and North Dakota cards are boring to me and don't look like football cards, so I'm skipping those and collecting the other 4. Got the first 2 in hand:

Of all the football items I own and have owned - this is my all-time favorite.
