Young boys and their Dads had a common goal when participating in the Soap Box Derbies- to build the fastest cars together, and win the races which were held on the hill near South 19th & Orchard Streets. This is a certificate and patch from the races. The original race track is located to the side of Highway 16 off South 19th Street, mostly covered with vegetation & obscured from sight, but under all that growth, most of the track is still there.

The Tacoma Tigers baseball team has seen many future stars that went on to major league fame. Seen here are a couple of collectibles; a bubble gum trading card holder, and a souvenier cup. Coincidently, the Tacoma Tigers' mascot is also the Stadium Tigers High School mascot.
