* How can I display my awards and trophies?

There are several ways you can display your awards and trophies. One way is to mount a display shelf onto the wall, high enough to be out of children's reach. This can also keep you from worrying that your trophies might be damaged by accident.

Today most people prefer display cases made of aluminum and glass that are sold commercially. Most display case manufacturers are advertising flexible collector display cabinets suitable for displays of awards and trophies. These are made of an aluminum frame, with sliding glass doors and shelves for the display of your trophies.

The advantage of this type of display case is that your collection is surrounded by a glass and metal frame, which prevents accidents and keeps it from gathering dust. Also, the sliding glass and finger pulls allow easy access to your trophies and awards if they need cleaning.

There are several display cases suited for a collector's sports memorabilia. All sports enthusiasts are looking for display cases that are easy to use to protect their collection from dust and other harmful elements. Football fanatics, for instance, seem to prefer their display cases to be made with the high-quality wood. An acrylic lid on the display case prevents their sports memorabilia from gathering dust and at the same time showcases their collection from any angle they want it to be viewed.

Basketball enthusiasts, like football fans, want to protect their memorabilia of basketball caps and jerseys signed by their favourite superstars. Hand-made acrylic cases with a removable acrylic lid are convenient if the collector also wants to clean his memorabilia from time to time.

NASCAR or car racing fanatics prefer die-cast metals to be the display cases of their memorabilia. Woods tends to be attacked by termites, and so their collection would be ruined. Thus the die-cast base is the best and most appropriate one for their sports memorabilia.
