Picked up this killer RPPC of Jim Thorpe kicking in a game circa 1912. So hard to track down Thorpe game action images!

Oldest card of George Halas I've ever seen! This 1915 RPPC shows Potsy Clark and George Halas while at Illinois.



They both broke their jaws that season and the press called them the "Order of the Broken Jaw". Note the head harnesses they are wearing. How would you like to play football with that on?

Numerous articles were written about it and some showed a cropped version of this image.

Jeff, very nice! I can imagine if there was TV coverage of the '32 championship, they'd definitely play up a photo of the two coaches shaking hands back in college.

I thought you might come up with that angle being a Spartans fan and all.

The person who listed this item didn't mention Clark in the description. I get he's not George Halas but was pleasantly surprised when I dug into this to find out it was Potsy that Halas was shaking hands with. I had heard Halas broke his jaw (and I think later his leg) while playing at Illinois but didn't know the backstory between these two that season.
