    Baseball memorabilia is a collection of artifacts that keeps us close to the game we love, preserves the glory of our heroes, and a spiritual return to the years of our youth. It is no wonder that we want to surround ourselves with mementos in remembrance of days gone by.

 The KeyMan Collectors Showcase allows you to share your display with Mickey Mantle Baseball Glove Phillies Cigars premium displaother collectors, and the opportunity to enjoy theirs. You can pick up some cool ideas, or inspire others.

 Many collectors like to display their memorabilia with magazine advertisements. This method of display is very popular with collectors of baseball gloves. In my "KeyMan's" Room I framed and hung a double page ad in separate frames, displayed the glove on a corner shelf by drilling a hole in a block of wood, then inserted a dowel to slip the glove over. The same method could be done with a single frame and placed on aBaseball Card tagged baseball equipment display wall or bookshelf.

 As seen in "The Sandlot" room pictured on the right, collector of player endorsed gloves and bats, Steve C., tagged his baseball equipment, by attaching a baseball card of the player to every endorsed baseball glove and bat.

Dodger Blue room display World Series programs and Black Bats.
 
David of the "Dodger Blue" room displays framed World Series programs below each of the 5 Los Angeles Dodgers, World Series Black Bats, representing the 5 Championship titles the Dodgers won in 1959, 1963, 1965, 1981, and 1988.

 Many baseball bat collectors display their bats horizontally, in a shadow box orThe Bat Cave baseball Bat collection plastic tube holders. Others prefer a vertical display. "The Bat Cave" room showcased by David, collector of Game Used baseball bats uses a vertical bat rack display.

These bat racks can be easily made with a 1-1/2 " drill bit or and a jig-saw, by cutting out a pattern on one length of 1x4 select pine or plywood, spaced at about 1-1/2" and then screwing it to another length of 1x4 from the back.
 
   Home Made Bat Rack
 
   Using frames to display your memorabilia collection, only takes up a little wall space, unless you are as passionate as John of the "Baseball Walls of Frame" room. Along with a large assortment of baseball memorabilia that includes baseball pins, cereal boxes, bobble heads, and Mcfarlane figurines, John displays 100's of framed Wall to wall framed baseball memorabiliaphotos. Wall to wall, floor to celling, and even up & down the stairs. John prefers black & white photos and tries to keep his collection of autographed photos together. John is a few frames short of having to build new walls, to hang them.

 Inexpensive matted frames can be picked up at Walmart for as low as $5.-$10. Collage frames featuring multi-picture matting, can be used to display postcard sized memorabilia.
Barn wood mounted catchers mask
 One of my favorites displays, belongs to Richard's "Baseball Loft" Richard mounted a vintage 1930's catchers mask to a section of weathered barn wood. It has vintage baseball written all over it. Richard recently retired from the Marine Corps and is currently dismantling the Baseball Loft, but plans to relocate his collection in his hometown in Tennessee. Richard collects All things Mets; vintage baseball items, game used helmets, bats, gloves, and cards. A talented artist, Richard creates portraits on baseballs of Hall of Famers, and New York Met players. Some have requested an Art ball in exchange for signed game used memorabilia.
 
   
You don't need a lot of space to display your memorabilia, and have fun with it too. Duke Bomber, and "The Clubhouse" display is proof of this. Duke utilized the hallway in his basement to the max. As he puts it "Baseball, Color, and Memories. Minnesota Twins team signed toilet seatMy crazy vision of a hallway." At the end of the hall he also has a pair of easy chairs and an HD TV to watch the game.

Duke also has a unique way of displaying player autographs for one of his favorite teams. A Minnesota Twins team signed toilet seat! Lift the lid, and the seat is autographed by Bert Blyleven, inscribed "Hey Knucklehead Enjoy" What a pisser, and you don't have to worry about putting the seat down.

Half the fun of collecting is showing it off to others, and we love to see it. If you have a Baseball memorabilia display and want to get a "Showcase Room" just contact me for the details, or visit the link below.
