Jim Thorpe Playing Baseball

The caption reads: "JIM" THORPE was the greatest All-American football team ever devised. When he played with Carlisle a dozen years ago, there was no real defense against his vicious rushes, and hte player whom he tackled generally woke up some hours afterward, with the question, "How many were killed?" on his lips. Jim went from football to Stockholm, where he collected a trunkful of medals at the Olympic Games; and from there to the New York Giants. He is not so good at baseball as he was at football-fortunately for Ty Cobb.

Jim Thorpe swings in a baseball bat in his baseball uniform.
