Lot 316: Jim Thorpe from Paul Thompson Agency
Jim Thorpe seems to streak through the Durham tobacco ad while sun blasts into the grandstand and a shadowy umpire figure watches from afar in brilliant World War I-era photo. Thompson backstamp and handwritten caption of New York Giants game written on the back of this 5x7" photo: "How Jim Thorpe gets away from the bag." Do not let this sweet image of America's greatest athlete get away from you. Has a tiny chip but NRMT.
