    Jim Thorpe Signed Wire Photograph. Image measures 8x10" in size and pictures Thorpe rounding the bases at New York City's The Polo Grounds. In both grease pencil and black ink, both in an unknown hand, the front of the photo is inscribed, "Jim Thorpe on his way to a home run, Polo Grounds, 1915." This year may be incorrect, however, as Thorpe's statistics do not show a homer that season, and paper caption on verso of wire photo has been removed. Pencil inscription on verso rates 10/10, and reads, "Property of Jim Thorpe." Photo shows a fair amount of creasing and edge wear, but these factors do not materially affect visual appeal. LOA from PSA/DNA.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
