    1953 Jim Thorpe Single Signed Baseball. Jim Thorpe passed away on March 28, 1953. As such, this exemplar is probably one of the last he ever signed. "To Kenny...From Jim Thorpe 1953" appears in 6.5/10 green ink on the panel to the immediate left of ONL (Giles) stamp. The ball has browned over the years and there are some dings and surface loss over the league stamping. However, the inscription and autograph still display admirably. This is only the third Thorpe single we have ever handled and only the second which appears on an official major league baseball. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
