This certificate was presented to Charles (Chick) Gordon in recognition of his selection to the 1948 All-State Baseball Team at the state semi-pro baseball tournament in Wichita, Kansas. Gordon participated in the tournament as the starting right-fielder for the Topeka Decker Oilers, the team that won the state championship that year. He was one of 16 players named to the All-State team by the National Baseball Congress of America, the tournament sponsor. Digital reproduction of the certificate was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.
