Questions: What is the price range for Thorpe autos and ARE there any certified auto cards of his?
Price ranges really vary and I have not been able to land one yet. I have seen them sell for $1600 to $13,500 for the 2006 National Treasures card (The guy had a feature article about it, but he OVERPAID by a ton especially since there are 4 of them and I know 2 others sold in the $3000- $5000 range)

With the economy taking a dive, has the Thorpe prices fallen at all? A Lot, A Little, None, or Increased?
I think the prices have come down a bit, but not too much. I think the prices have also come down due to the fact that they keep making more and more of them, which concerns me greatly.

I see you are cornering the Thorpe Market...which inserts has the highest completion percentage in your possession? 11 of 20 made, all 5 of 5 made, etc). For that matter what about GU items?

I will NEVER be able to corner the market on the Thorpe cards. There are 2 other very large collectors out there (ebay names jimmo30 Jim Morgan and runred41 Mike Driskoll whose collections are actually better than mine. I think Mike's and mine are about the same in quantity, but Jim's is better in quality) I have only landed 3 1/1's of Thorpe and that was when Jim wasn't on ebay all the time. I Jim has pretty much every 1/1 and 1/? he likes the 1st made and has DEEP pockets and will outbid pretty much everyone. If he wants it he gets it.
Pretty much any Jim Thorpe, Red Grange, and Bronko Nagurski card that I don't have is my white whale at the time as I am sure you understand with your mindboggling Brunell collection.

Thanks for the answers - same questions for your Grange and Bronko collections too!
