Incredible pre-rookie photo of Pro Football Hall of Famer and Olympic hero, Jim Thorpe during spring training with the New York Giants in 1913. Thorpe is pictured at the Giants spring training facility in Marlin, Texas while sporting a uniform style only worn by the team during the previous season of 1912. 6" x 8" photo exhibits superb image quality with only a touch of chipping to the four corners. Verso is clean aside from several handwritten notations, International credit stamping and two date stamps of April 3, 1922. Authenticated and encapsulated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.
