I recently created a discussion about framed autographs. The purpose of creating the discussion was to encourage members to share autographs that they proudly display. Some of us have our autographs custom framed by professionals, and some of us frame our autographs ourselves.
Collectors spend a lot of time adding to their collections, and very little time displaying their collections. Action figures are stored in crates. Baseball cards and comics are stored in boxes. Autographs are stored in binders. What is the point of collecting if everything ends up in a closet somewhere?
I recently had my Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg autographed photo custom framed. It is too nice to keep stored away in a closet in a toploader.
Please do not misunderstand me. I highly recommend collecting as a valuable hobby. It is a wonderful distraction from the nonsense that constantly plagues our society. I only hope that our collections will more often see the light of day.
