I was finally able to get my hands on a copy of this rare French magazine from 1912. I've had this on my list for many years because it has an awesome supplement of Jim Thorpe. I was able to hunt one down through some deep internet research and it arrived yesterday! It's about 11 x 14 and the artwork & colors are beautiful.

FYI...shipping time from central France to central Oklahoma is almost 3 weeks!

Great magazine, Casey. That's a new one to me. Always enjoy seeing Thorpe items I've never seen before and nice to have Oklahoma memoribilia staying close to home.

Boomer!

This is one of my favorite Thorpe images. Not sure what year it is but look how young he looks! Gotta be 1907 or 08 when he had just started playing for Carlisle.

Great postcards! Have you zoomed in to see if you can find Thorpe on the field?

Default Thorpe

Hi...Ive been a member for awhile but never posted anything. The Thorpe thread has been calling to me for awhile and love the pieces that have been shown so far. I have an immense Jim Thorpe collection of over 1000 pieces that has never been seen (other than many of the pieces themselves) but never been shared as a collection. My earliest piece is 1904 when he enrolled in Carlisle. If somebody will teach me how to load photos Id be willing to start sharing photos of my collection....if anybody is interested in seeing what I have. I see some fellow Oklahoma collectors who enjoy having Thorpe pieces! Hopefully, Ive posted this correctly and not messed up the flow of the thread. Thanks! Mike
