Many items on view in the onsite exhibition recall games of yesteryear, including programs from the Royals play in 1945 through 1957.Ticket stubs, program cards, a postcard of Edgerton Arena (home of the Royals), and basketball cards are mementos from games. In addition, numerous programs along with photographs of the team document the Royals over their time in Rochester.

To give an idea of the spirit of the game, and of Rochester at the time, provided below are scans from programs that were sold at Royals games. The blue program is provided on loan from the Rochester Public Library Local History & Genealogy Division. The other four are on loan from a private collector.
