1950 Jim Thorpe Signed Envelope - PSA/DNA NM-MT 8

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840

Envelope signed in blue ink by Jim Thorpe, who is regarded by many as the greatest athlete of the twentieth century. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the signature graded "NM-MT 8." Thorpe has added the date "1952" below his name. This is an extremely novel envelope in that a former owner made it a Thorpe commemorative piece by obtaining postmarks from "James" Georgia (1950) and "Thorpe" West Virginia (1953). Thorpe's signature is scarce in any form. This particular example was obtained just one year prior to his death in 1953 at the age of sixty four. The envelope (6 x 3.5 inches) displays a few light creases and is in Excellent condition overall. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $840
