Image of 2009.030.001 - Plaque commemorating Bob Adams of El Camino High School and College of San Mateo being inducted into the San Mateo County Sports Hall of Fame on June 22, 2006.  Plaque includes image of Adams and a brief biography:  "Who would have guessed it?  As a kid growing up in South San Francisco, he was not a physical specimen by any stretch of the imagination.  He was so skinny he quit playing football after his junior year at El Camino High School.  But a transformation began at the College of San Mateo where he blossomed inot a big, strong starting tight end.  He later played for the College of the Pacific.  He then had a productive seven-year NFL career."

Image of 2009.030.132 - Wood and acrylic plaque commemorating Ralph Neves of South San Francisco High School. who was inducted into the San Mateo County Sports Hall of Fame on May 16, 1990.  Plaque includes image of  Neves and a brief biography:  "Jockey Ralph Neves, who was known as the Portuguese Pepperpot, is the only jockey in the history of horse racing who came back from the dead to ride 28 more years.
It happened in 1936 when Neves was riding at Bay Meadows Race Track in San Mateo. His horse went down on the far turn and Neves was badly injured. He was taken by ambulance to Mills Hospital and then transported to a mortuary. An old friend who was also a doctor followed him to the mortuary where he gave him an injection of adrenalin. Neves reportedly jumped up from the mortuary table, ran outside, hailed a cab and returned to Bay Meadows. He finished the season the next day and won top jockey honors at Bay Meadows.
Among the great horses Neves rode were Seabiscuit, Round Table and Native Diver. In 1957, he won the Bluegrass Stakes with Round Table and finished third in the Kentucky Derby.
A member of the Horse Racing Hall of Fame, the South San Franciscan won his share of major races in his 30-year career: the Santa Ana Derby, the Santa Ana Handicap, the Tanforan Handicap, the Hollywood Derby adn the San Juan Capistrano."

Fossil specimen is comprised of two shells, separated by a layer of sediment.  Top shell has ridges that appear to run the length of its surface.  One large fracture runs across the width of the shell, with another fracture that runs the length, from ligament to front edge.  Shell is fragmented along its front edge.  Bottom shell has larger ridges, indicating that these two shells are likely not from the same animal.  Most of the bottom shell is lost, but ridges appear to have extended the length of the shell.  Both shells are white and sediment between the two is light brown.

Multiple cracks run throughout the surface, with loss of shell along front edge and along one side.  Bottom shell is also white, but is flatter and more oval in shape. Bluish growth rings are visible on the shell surface.  Shell loss along the front edge of shell, and a fracture towards the back of the shell, exposing underlying grayish brown sediment.  Cracks run throughout surface of bottom shell.

Faint ridges are visible on one side, running the length of the shell.  Underside surface is irregularly shaped, with a partial shell cast and other shell fragments throughout. Some reddish patches are visible.

2014.009.013 - Clinocardium nuttali, basket cockle fossil dating from between 1.5 million years ago to .75 million years ago commonly found at low tide in littoral (sandy and muddy bottom) or sub-littoral (open bay, muddy marine) zones. Fossil specimen is stone-colored, with some patches of white and some areas with a reddish tinge (likely indicating the presence of iron oxide). Faint ridges are visible on one side, running the length of the shell. Underside surface is irregularly shaped, with a partial shell cast and other shell fragments throughout. Some reddish patches are visible.

Fossil specimen is white, scalloped-shaped with a rounded top.  Ridges run the length of the shell.  Shell is embedded in light-brown colored sediment.  A smaller shell fragment sits beside the specimen.  Underside surface has shell fragments throughout.
