Very high quality vintage signed photograph of Jim Thorpe, autographed in 1940. This terrific matte finish photo shows this great, all-around athlete wearing an impressive Native American headdress. Inscribed and signed in black fountain pen in the lower left quarter. The 8x10 image is pretty clean, with only a trivial tear at the lower portion of the bottom right edge.
Has a fine appearance to it. Jim Thorpe autographed photos are extremely difficult to find; I have been involved in the hobby since the 1980's and only possessed one other. He won two gold medals in the 1912 Summer Olympics; played professional baseball for the New York Giants and is a charter member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In a PSA/DNA Authentic holder, graded 8, it also comes with a letter of authenticity from PSA.The item "High quality vintage signed photo of Jim Thorpe Dated 1940 PSA/DNA Grade 8" is in sale since Friday, October 16, 2020.
