c. 1910 Silver gelatin photograph of young Jim Thorpe from Carlisle, posed in full uniform as a member of the football team. This is a vintage photograph by the George Grantham Bain company and it presents beautiful yin great shape. There are a handful of examples of this photograph known to exist (at least one has been authenticated as a Type 1 from PSA) with this being a new discovery being offered here for the first time ever in great shape! An underrated piece of sports history and one of the best Thorpe images ever taken!
