    1922 E137 Zeenut PCL Jim Thorpe SGC 10 Poor 1 - A Newly Discovered Example! Jim Thorpe's exploits on the gridiron have become the stuff of folklore, making it impossible to calculate the ratio of fact to exaggeration, but there is no question that he was the most talented football star of his age. The stories of his halftime drop kick field goals from the fifty yard line to entertain the fans may not be gospel, but his three World Championships with the Canton Bulldogs certainly are. When the National Football League was founded in 1920, it was Thorpe who was chosen as League president by the charter members. His tenure with various sports/teams resulted in his appearing on precious trading cards. The offered E137 Zeenut from 1922 depicts the athletic legend with the Portland Beavers of the Pacific Coast League, this was to be his final year Thorpe played in organized baseball. The card has been assessed "SGC 10 Poor 1" with some creasing and wrinkles and a removed bottom tab. Of the thousands of E137 Zeenut that were issued between 1911 and 1939 Jim Thorpe remains one of the top ten E137 entries. A must have card that appears in only the most advanced vintage collections.
