Signed & Framed Photos
Back in 2007, my wife and I built our home and I really wanted to have a Sports Bar in our basement for 1) entertainment purposes and 2) to show off my Sports memorabilia. My memorabilia includes jerseys, helmets, gloves, signed 8x10s and even my NFL Cereal Box collection. Yes, you read that right. In this section, I display my favorite Signed and Framed photos. Not all of my photos are displayed. I ran outta room.
Signed & Framed Photos:
The Fearsome Foursome - Los Angeles Rams (Shown Left)
Not only did my wife get this one for me as well, but she got it for me at a very good price. This black & white photo of the "Fearsome Foursome" is one my most favorite items that I have displayed.
Signed & Framed 8X10s:
The 8X10 Wall - Vikings, Cardinals, Saints, Lions, Buccaneers (Shown Left)
For a very long while, I bought and put together my very own wall mounted plaques. Until I ran outta wall space. Other than the Vikings and Cardinals, I only collected players that I liked. That is why you might notice a roque photo of the Lions or Saints up there on the wall. I am still looking for that very hard to find Sam Mills Saints signed 8X10.
Signed & Framed Photos:
Killer Bees - Miami Dolphins (Shown Left)
I don't collect just 8x10s, although they are the easiest to find. Sometimes, the photos are larger and sometimes, they come in a colloge, like the "Killer Bees" came to me. Put this extra-large photo into the "My wife got it for me category."
Signed & Framed Ticket w/ Beckett Price Guide #121:
Randy Moss & Cris Carter - Minnesota Vikings (Shown Left)
Back in April of 2000, I was in a local card store when I saw the latest Beckett price guide. The Vikings were on the cover. Randy Moss and Cris Carter graced the cover with the words, "Catch us if you can." I had to have it. So I bought the issue and went home. It wasn't until later that I noticed that not only were the Vikings on the cover, but also my story that I wrote to Dan Hitt, (Beckett's then editor-in-chief), about my chance meeting with James Lofton that previous fall while on a flight to Phoenix. What are the odds? So, I had it all framed.
Framed Joey Browner Interception:
From a 1987 game at Milwaukee County Stadium (Shown Left)
This was another item that my wife got for me. The neat thing about this photo is that it was once displayed in the Vikings locker room. I have no idea how my wife obtains some of these items, it's just that she does somehow.
Framed Cameron Morand Pre-Game Intros:
From a 2012 game in 4th grade at Circle High School (Shown Left)
So not all of my photos are from NFL players. So of my photos are of even more important players; my boys. This one of of Cameron, my oldest, running onto the field during pre-game intros. Notice what jersey # he's wearing; Scott Studwell, of course.
Framed Avery Morand Pre-Game Intros:
From a 2012 game in 2nd grade at Andover High School (Shown Left)
So not all of my photos are from NFL players. So of my photos are of even more important players; my boys. This one of of Avery, my middle child, running onto the field during pre-game intros. Notice what jersey # he's wearing; Joey Browner, of course.
