Items I've seen signed in the past few years include custom made tables with pieces of stadiums as legs or the top. Custom clocks made from stadium signage. I have a friend who produces miniature green monsters of Fenway Park. There are lots of neat ideas out there.
One thing I recently had made was a canvas print of my published photo of Fenway's green monster. I've had about 15 former Red Sox players autograph it and almost all of them asked where it came from and who took the photo. It is a definite conversation piece among players and friends. I am proud of this photo because it was taken about 12 years ago on a 35mm camera. It also is a picture of the wall before all the current advertising was added. I've made other canvasses of this photo to offer as gifts to people.
|My personal canvas autographed by many great Red Sox, including Jim Rice, Carlton Fisk and Pedro Martinez.|
A great benefit of getting this autographed is that it is considered a flat item, therefore will always come in at the lowest price point to add an autograph. Very much a win-win for me and my collection.
So look around your house, see what you have, and figure out how you can create the next unique conversation piece.
