In late December I was cleaning my collectible room, which is also our family room and daughter's play room. As I was cleaning and organizing my autographs, I realized 2 things:
1. I need a larger room.
2. I need to refresh the displays with updated items and photos.
I noticed that I had baseballs displayed of players that mean nothing to me, I had photos of players that are no longer in professional sports, I had plenty of current player items that were hidden (ie, Current Bruins and Celtics Items). So it was time to re-organize, update and purge.
The first thing I accomplished was cleaning of the current items and replacing of outdated items. This was easy because I had frames in which I can easily switch photos, ball cubes for the newest baseballs and labels so I could easily identify the autograph. The frames I purchased were the Format brand which are usually $5 and under at stores such as Michaels, Walmart and Target. Format frames have easy to pop glass and only need a small nail to hang. Ball cubes of all sizes can be found at sporting good stores (Dick's sells them starting at $3.99.) I highly recommend investing in any type of label maker which can be found at any office supply store.
