Hi Mike-
Thanks for posting!
It would be great to see some pix when you get a chance, realizing that having a broken leg may not make it too easy to get around.

That is a terrific area of focus. I especially like that you are going towards the memorabilia side as there would be so much more that you can (potentially) obtain as opposed to just cards which are unfortunately very limited.

Are you interested in movie posters for the film Jim Thorpe All American? I may be able to get my hands on some posters, lobby cards etc. Let me know and I will see what I may be able to track down, or at least keep an eye out for. Thorpe was an extra in several films in the 1930's, unfortunately he was not featured in any posters or lobby cards for those roles.

I had a Jim Thorpe signed moccasin sole that I sold about a year ago.

Tom? Hi...I have several things concerning the movie of his life. I have a movie poster but not a lobby card. I actually have a lobby card with Jim on it and an original picture with the same likeness! I’m collecting all aspects of his life. I’ll eventuall post a picture of the lobby card and picture for all to see. He does appear with Tex Ritter on a movie poster of ‘Arizona Frontier’. Google the movie or Jim Thorpe and the movie and you can see it. Mike

Is that him with the cauldron? I know there are a few still that picture him. Lobby cards from that film don't show up very often.

Actually in doing some research, Thorpe is prominent on the one sheet and the title card for the film as well. I was not aware. One sheet is a great image of Thorpe.

Leon..thanks for the welcome! The lobby cards and posters with him on them are next to impossible to locate. I think I found the lobby card from somebody in Australia if I remember the purchase correctly. Sure would love to get a movie poster of Arizona Frontier with he and Tex Ritter on it. Several movie items from that movie has him on it....just can’t locate any! Mike
