Arthur "Artie" Thomas (21 September 1884 - 7 May 1960)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with St Kilda in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

After arriving from Brunswick in 1910, Thomas played 17 games in his debut season and kicked 15 goals, which were enough to top the goal-kicker.[2] A rover, he appeared in three further seasons for St Kilda. His brother, Hugh Thomas, coached St Kilda in the 1940s.[3]
