    I must be the only one that thinks this is a cool idea. You can display your items, but don't have to worry about them getting destroyed or stolen. And if someone wants to see the real thing, you can show them.

    I had been trying to come up with something for a while to display mine.

    About a month or so ago I picked up a 18x24 inch poster frame to test an idea. I took the insert that comes inside the frame and flipped it backwards. Then, I took some double-sided tape and attached four 9-card binder sleeves to it. I still need to redo it a little more neatly, but I liked the way the trial run turned out.

    I really don't see whats so stupid about displaying reprints of stuff I own. I know I own what I am looking at, few, if anyone who also looks at them can tell the difference without getting up close and inspecting them closely.
    Plus, as I said above, I don't have to worry about light, or theft. If I want, I could save a boatload of money on framing, since I can get $2 reprints from adoramapix, $3 frames without matting since these can touch glass without any concern. And all the high value stuff can be stored away securely.
    The only real stuff on my walls are the signed pieces of equipment, since I can't scan a whole hockeystick or game used glove.

    Now that would be stupid. Absolutely everything I have displayed I own, and if I want a whole cast on the wall, I won't even fake it with a placeholder scan from online.

    Thank you.
    This whole wall is reprints (except the equipment). If you owned all these, would you really be less excited about looking at it even though you know you owned all of them?



    This whole cast mat has ~$1000 worth of sigs in it. All are authenticated and slabbed and stored away. Would you really want the originals on your wall?

    I'm going to list a couple of links. I have never used any of these since my displays/cubes are all UV protected but this may be an option. The last link is a PDF. If anyone has ever used any of these please comment.
