Default Jim Thorpe?

Posted By: Chris Counts

Here's an old postcard that just closed on eBay. The Jim Thorpe lookalike is obvious to me, but is it really him? Certainly the buyer thought so at nearly $200 ...

Bottom second from the left, looks like him, but someone with more of a sense of his history will have to give a better estimate as to the liklihood of it actually being him.

Jim Thorpe was 6'1" I dont think he would be sitting on ground, usually that was for the little 5'8" middle infielders.

I think there were alot of Indians that had Thorpes facial features in the era.

Some photographers prefer the tall guys to sit.
