VOLLEYBALL MEMORABILIA Roadshows
The VOLLEYBALL MEMORABILIA Roadshow has its roots in the 1996 Olympic Games exhibit in the San Francisco International Airport, where more than 70% of the Airport's Olympic Volleyball display was on loan from VOLLEYBALL MEMORABILIA.
The first official VOLLEYBALL MEMORABILIA Roadshow was in 1997 at a Stanford University Kid's Clinic sponsored by the Stanford Women's Volleyball team.
Four Division 1 universities in the Bay Area were the venue for nine Roadshows which were held in conjunction with home volleyball matches.
Stanford University played host to two women's and four men's volleyball matches. San Jose State University Women's Volleyball team and Santa Clara University Women's Volleyball team each hosted a Roadshow. In 2002 Saint Mary's College Women's Volleyball team hosted the last VOLLEYBALL MEMORABILIA Roadshow in the Bay Area. In 2007 the Roadshow packed up its display cases and headed North to Oregon State to be part of the Fan Fest at the Willamette Volleyball Classic.
