A jersey from your favorite sports team can be a valued possession because of its sentimental value, but it can also have a monetary value depending on what type of jersey you own. If you own a collectible jersey that is special edition or signed by your favorite player, you want to make sure that you investment is kept safe and secure. To properly preserve your favorite sports jersey, here are some tips you should consider.
The Layout of the Jersey
Displaying your sports jersey starts with knowing how you will display it. Some collectors just want to see the back of the jersey, while other collectors want to also see the patches on the sleeves which can be folded in to properly display them. If you have a signed jersey, you will want to make sure that it is visible and displayed proudly.
Framing the Jersey
After you have decided how you will display the jersey inside the frame, it is time to consider the different types of jersey display cases that are available. You can choose from a number of sizes and shapes so that your favorite layout can be achieved. If you want to include multiple pieces of memorabilia, a shadow box is a great way to display both your jersey and your other collectible pieces inside the same frame.
Displaying the Jersey in Your Home
Once you have your jersey in the frame the way you want it, it is time to choose a place to display it in your home. The key is to find a place that will be out of direct sunlight and less likely to have water damage than other areas of the home. Even if you are using a frame that filters the sun, it is still important to keep it way from too much light so the fabric does not fade. That way, you will be able to not only enjoy the jersey as a piece in your home, but also as a part of your collectible investments.
Keeping your collectibles safe while still enjoying looking at it is important to properly maintaining your sports collection. Display cases and frames can be a great way to preserve your jerseys and other memorabilia for years to come.
