Tour of a Lifetime : Memorabilia

The exchange of team flags is a common practice in the world of soccer, and is considered mandatory at international games. Kap was an avid collector of memorabilia, news clippings, and photographs throughout his life, and knew that these materials would one day tell a story. With that in mind, Kap ensured that multiple flags were exchanged at each game to allow the entire team to have souvenirs and to send mementos back to the Dallas office.

Luggage decals and tags were a great way for travelers to document their journey, and for hotels to advertise. Bob Kap collected these luggage decals as the Dallas Tornado Soccer Club went on their world tour, to help document the many cities and beautiful hotels they stayed in.
