Mounting Sports Memoriblilia(Jersey, Pictures)

Thu May 05, 2011 8:55 pm

Looking for ideas on mounting a jersey with an autographed picture. Any suggestions, examples, and ideas welcome.
Things to consider:
1. It's quite a big NFL jersey with stats sewn into the lower part.

2. It has a decal denoting authenticity, plus a generic card matching the decal number garaunteeing the signature is authentic, wondering if I should remove it

3. Kinda thick as well, but would you treat the jersey with something to protect the fabric

So any of you have any ideas?

I'd take it to Michael's and see what they have to say. They have lots of examples of what they can do with sports memorabilia. I had some oddly shaped items mounted there and they did a great job.

Hrmmmm, I didn't know they do things like that, but it makes sense, they sell frames and things. Might have to check that out. I would probably do the hanger-type thing, maybe small divider for 8x10 picture and trading card from his final season. If it's easy, I could just put it inside the case myself and mouth other items

Oh my!!  

Yep, Michael's has a great framing department. I'd just present them with the stuff, see what their ideas for mounting it is and what the cost is. I'd probably have them do it since they know what to use and what not to use, to avoid damaging the items.

Aaron Brothers also does odd mounting jobs (so to speak).

I see you are in WA so there is an Aaron Bro's around somewhere. They are not cheap but do a great job.

Let me know how it goes, when I move I want a man lair with all sort of sports stuff hung up on the walls.

Just take it to a frame shop. If they're any good they have done jerseys before.
