The collection consists of diplomas and awards issued to athletes, clubs and sports functionaries. Though collected as documentary material, they have an equally important artistic value. Particularly valuable are sports posters created to promote sporting events and clubs with the oldest posters made at the beginning of the 20th century. Particularly notable are the posters promoting Hawk gatherings, as well as the first competitions in specific sports. Many of the posters were designed by renowned Croatian artists and seeing their works in the field of applied sporting arts is particularly interesting.
