Recreational Artifacts

Recreational Artifacts are objects that are used as toys or for carrying on activities such as games and sports. An example of sports equipment within the Mayborn Museum collection is a pair of leather boxing gloves that belonged to T.P. Robinson, Baylor University Class of 1911, who was also a well-known football player. An interesting toy in the collection is a wooden top with a metal tip which, according to Texas Governor and Baylor University President Pat Neff, “was a top owned by me when I was a boy going to school in Eagle Springs, and I won several nice marbles by being able to spin it longer than some of my bare foot associates.”
