Description

The International News Service claimed the copyright on this one. It’s a Spring Training photo posing the two famous Native Americans, Jim Thorpe and Chief Meyers, both rostered with the New York Giants. Dated “Mar 14 1913“, the photograph was taken in Marlin Springs, Texas where the McGraws performed their pre-season maneuvers. As it’s analyzed, Thorpe was riding the crest of his colossal Olympic performance in Stolkholm and he was yet a month away from his major league debut. Meyers, on the other hand, was midway through a nine-year big league career. He was a fixture behind the plate for the Giants and finished his tenure with a commendable .291 batting average. The 8-1/2″ x 6-1/2” photograph, as is apparent in our illustration, has some damage at the right border, but there are no creases or blemishes, and the images are crisp and absolutely impeccable.
