That's a nice bonus when the "other guy" turns out to have coached a team to an NFL title.

Even though I have a copy of a book, really a pamphlet about football, by Potsy from the 30s, I never specifically researched him. The only reason I wasn't surprised to see him at Illinois was because in Red Grange's bio, he actually says "On the football field I tried my darnedest to be like my two special heroes, All Americans Bart Macomber and Potsy Clark of Illinois."

Here's a great photo of Grange with one of his idols before an exhibition game in early 1926.

Haven't posted anything in this thread for a while so thought I'd update it with a few new additions. Went to the Chantilly CSA show last weekend and picked up some nice Diamond Matchbook covers. IMHO pre-war matchbooks are underrated as there are many HOFers / Stars that have matchbooks but no other cardboard image. It's a great way to fill in the holes in collection if you are trying to get images of pre-war players.

Ox Emerson should be in the HOF


A few stars that are also in the Chicle set!

These PC's don't show Thorpe in his football uniform but in his NY Giants uniform in 1913 instead.

Thorpe marching with team before 10/24/1913 game in Blue Rapids, KS


Thorpe batting later in the day. He went 2-5 with a run scored.

I see another one of these is coming up in Heritage - I don't remember what I paid for this one, but I think it was less than the opening bid for Heritage - for the very first (or the second depending how you consider the 1932 Spartans Bears game) NFL Championship game.
