Richard Smalley and Robert Curl with nanotube models, Nobel Prize winners

In 1996, Dr. Richard Smalley, Dr. Robert Curl, and Sir Harold W. Kroto won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their discovery of fullerenes.

On a university campus, winning a Nobel Prize makes  you an immediate rock star. Thus, we have a baseball cap, celebrating the event, signed by Drs. Smalley and Curl.
