I recieved this 14x11 plaque in the mail today. It has a small smudge on the Mays but, it looks great and comes from a reputable source. The problem is, it appears to be a photo glued to the plaque or a picture directly printed to a wooden plaque. Has anyone been in this situation? If so, does anyone have any advice on how to protect the autos while still displaying the plaque on the wall?

Here is another not-so-recent pickup that I just like to show off :winking0071:

McGoo -

As far as the 'plaque', go to a local Trophy Shop and see if the have the correct size beveled plexiglass overlay to just cover the picture and have it tacked on over the picture to protect the autos...

Is that a St Louis Browns ball? How much did you have to give up for that?

All the best -

Thanks for the advice xpress (Why could't I think of that? :winking0071:).

I'll definately check it out. I've also been looking at shadowboxes but it's tough to find the right size without an extremely high price for shipping.



The ball is from the 1952 St. Louis Browns (Before Rogers Hornsby got the boot). It cost me a pretty penny (around $800) but it was well worth it. It came with a PSA/DNA LOA and is in great condition.
