Default Jim Thorpe Cards

I have been thinking about adding a Jim Thorpe card to my collection. I'd love to see some examples of Thorpe cards that others have collected.

Thanks!

Ethan

This 1933 Sport Kings card of Thorpe is always popular, but perhaps more so when 100% present. It was included in the Sport Kings set even though it was several years after his sporting career, an indication of how highly regarded he was at the time. The Thorpenstein shown, featuring a guest appearance from a 1933 Goudey George Connally, is as close as I get to a complete card.

Here is the Thorpe 1912 Olympic postcard from Sweden. I did not have to pay the crazy prices people are paying for it in the U.S. as I purchased it in Sweden. Some minor damage at the top but that does not matter as the idiot opinion sellers with never get their hands on it. It serves the purpose for which it was acquired; an original Olympic image of Thorpe for my American Olympian photography archives.

The Goudey card is my favorite (and the only one I have). Those postcards are really neat, though I don't collect them.

I do collect photos, though, and really enjoy this one....

I don't have any of his cards, but I can keep this going with a few photos, one of which shows him with the NFL's Oorang Indians along with Joe Guyon, Pete Calac, and Elmer Busch.

Bryan,
That second photo appears to show a left-handed hitter, unless my eyes are playing tricks on me. Did Thorpe experiment with with switch hitting?

EDITED TO ADD: Looking into it, I find the answer is yes--he did try switch hitting. I did not know that. Thanks for posting the photo.

Default Thorpe Supplement



This is a pen and ink drawing of Thorpe published as a 9 x 12-inch supplement to the New York Evening News in 1914. To my knowledge, it is the only known example. The supplements were created by Larry Semon, a cartoonist that later became a Hollywood slapstick comic and international silent film superstar.

A profile and all supplements of the set can be found at:

http://www.oldcardboard.com//m/ny-ev...cardsetID=1232

More detailed info about Larry Semon and other baseball sets he created is provided in "The Baseball Artwork of Larry Semon: A Prelude to Silent Movie Stardom" (Old Cardboard Magazine, Issue #28, p. 26-33)

I was a teenager without a ton of money and never spent more than $100 on any card at the time, so I am guessing it was in the $50-75 range.

Im just happy I was a fan of vintage in the 80s and didnt just buy 88 Topps and Donruss then!
