Conlon has captured superstar Native American athlete Jim Thorpe during his time with the New York Giants as he stands on a base, gloved hand resting on his knee. A large, striking visage of Thorpe in full-uniform, this example measures approx. 7.5" x 9.5" with chipping present to both top corners. Verso of photo includes a Brown Brothers paper tag and no fewer than four different brown brothers stamps along with Charles Conlon's own handwritten notations. Encapsulated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.
