There’s a fine line between a collection and a clutter, but with the right tools and a few ideas from the experts, you can put your best memorabilia on display in a way that truly showcases it.
Depending on the size of your display, you want to rotate it so it’s always fresh and changing. This not only keeps the clutter down, it allows the viewer to focus on a few choice pieces. Try to mix it up a little to create interest. Placing similar pieces in a straight line is boring. Try small groupings of pieces that either complement or contrast each other, that are a mix of different shapes and sizes or that create a tableau. Scatter these groupings throughout your home or office.
Choose a manner of display that fits the object. Shadow boxes that are either free-standing or hang on a wall are great for the display of smaller items. Each item has its own space, and shadow boxes provide each piece with its own little display area. Large single items or pieces that are fragile or extremely valuable do better in a display of their own. Examples of this are sports memorabilia items such as player cards or signed baseball and boxing gloves or balls. Special cases made of glass or acrylic keep these items safely enclosed and protected from fire and other hazards.
Occasionally, a collectible loses its appeal or you discover a new, more sought-after piece and have no more room to display it properly. There are a couple of options in that case:
1. Retire the older item to semi-permanent storage to make room for the new one.
2. Sell or trade the older item to another collector. That’s a good way to part with a piece that no longer fits in your collection, and you may even help another collector to add a treasured piece to theirs.
Visit a website that specializes in producing or selling display cases that are suited to your type of collectibles. Though shelves with glass fronts and lighted interiors are fine for many displays, sometimes you need to a little extra protection for extremely valuable collections, or an arrangement for single pieces of memorabilia. Some online retailers focus on one type of collectible, such as sports items, and manufacture display cases that are tailored to highlight and protect your most prized possessions.
