    Description

    1922 Oorang Indians (Jim Thorpe) vs. Columbus Panhandles Government Postcard. Led by all-world sports legend Jim Thorpe, the Oorang Indians of the National Football League were put together by Walter Lingo to market his Oorang dog kennels in 1922. With a population of well under 1,000 people, the town of LaRue, Ohio remains the smallest city in NFL history.

    Presented here is an original Government Postcard/ticket from the Indians' 1922 meeting with Columbus. Measuring at 3.25x5.5", it is part of an amazing find of Jim Thorpe memorabilia that originated in Indiana. Exhibiting moderate wear with one small tear, it is properly postmarked and addressed on the verso.
