James Naismith played a critical role in American Athletics through the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th Centuries. He is best credited for the creation of what is now America’s most popular indoor sport, Basketball. In 1894 he married Maude Sherman and this is her wedding glove, garter and handkerchief. Included in this lot is also a doll’s dress which is dated to 1873. The collection is in remarkably good condition considering the age of the items. The items, which are all white, are slightly yellowed with age but there are no tears or holes in the fabric of any of the items.
