October 3rd, 1908 panoramic postcard showing Carlisle in action against State (Penn State). Carlisle defeated Penn State 12 to 5 with Jim Thorpe scoring all of Carlisle's points that day. The game was played at Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The 3 1/2" x 11" image shows game action at a distance.

The real photo postcard is postally unused and outside of two holes/tears just to the right of the grandstand presents very well. The postcard comes with its original scrapbook backing. The owner of the scrapbook thankfully used slots in the backing paper rather than glue to hold the postcard in place.

While there is not possible way to guarantee that Thorpe is one of the 22 players in the field, it is undeniable that he had a tremendous impact on the outcome of this game. A great vintage college football piece from early in the career of a football legend.
