I think your HOF collections need psychiatric evaluation. In other words: INSANE!!! ohmy.gif

Either way, Great Collection!!!

Labguy42 - nice to see all the Thorpes together at last! I thought you were playing scrabble with all them Lettermans.

Questions: What is the price range for Thorpe autos and ARE there any certified auto cards of his?

With the economy taking a dive, has the Thorpe prices fallen at all? A Lot, A Little, None, or Increased?

Thanks for sharing your collection with us.

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?

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 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!

Man, really nice additions to your collection, congrats. Looking forward to your next update..good luck!

Wow simply WOW!

Congrats on a super awesome collection. I don't know about you but with collections like this I tend to like the ones that have uncommon poses or color schemes. Nice action figure recent addition.

Other than the obvious action figures and special stamps/envelopes is there any other Non-Card Memorabilia of Thorpe you collect? Photos, Magazine articles etc... Just curious.

not much saving up for another 1/1. This one is #/25
