Tuktuk Day 131

Just a few of Bjørn’s shirts on display – it takes two cranes to lift them!

Shirt Displays

Yesterday it was the excellent Retro Fair at Chelmsford which was as much as a success as I had expected. Congratulations, Greg. Nice to catch up with old friends like Les and Lee and a pleasure to meet Mike Groves for the first time. The Shirt project goes back to 2009 and Bjørn Heidenstrøm now has a hugely impressive collection proving to all football fans that there is more that unites us than divides us. One of the challenges of collecting shirts is deciding how to store them and/or display them. Mike has an innovative solution that impressed me and I thought you, my loyal readers, would be interested too.

Have you been thinking about framing one of your favourite football shirts?

Well, there’s more than one way to show off your shirt:

1. Get Your Shirt Framed Professionally:

You could take your shirt to be professionally framed, and if it’s a highly valuable shirt this might be a good option. However in many cases getting it framed will cost you more than you paid for the shirt.

2. Get A Shirt Framing Kit & Frame Your Shirt Yourself:

An alternative is to buy a shirt framing kit online and frame the shirt yourself. Whilst this will be cheaper than the professional framing option, you might not get the same professional result. Many kits provide a card for the shirt to be wrapped around, before fitting the card into a relatively small frame. This means you don’t get to see the whole shirt and often can only see the player’s name and number, or just the collar, badge and sponsor’s logo.

3. Try The Unique Shirt Hero Shirt Display Mount:

The unique Shirt Hero shirt display mount is a cheaper and easier alternative to framing a shirt. The simple clip and rail enable you to display your shirt on almost any wall in style. You can see the whole shirt and still touch and feel it as well. And there’s the added bonus that you can take the shirt down whenever you want to wear it.

You can buy the Shirt Hero direct in their store for just £9.99

To all shirt collectors out there, I hope Mike’s product is of interest. Please remember that the purpose of this 90 day challenge is to raise funds for Prostate Cancer and an equal amount for my local club, FC Deportivo Galicia. As always, I hope that you are all enjoying this digital tour of the UK and that you will consider a donation to support FC Deportivo Galicia and/or Prostate Cancer UK 

If everybody chipped in with just £1, I would easily hit my target of £10,000 and life would be easier at the club whilst the charity could continue its great work. A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can donate. If you can’t any shares of this site or even this post would be gratefully received. Thanks again.
