Hoping as this is a new week and people are back from their holiday adventures, that people will send some pictures here of what they are doing.

I had a full jersey and more that I wanted to display, so a basic frame wasn't going to work. A huge thanks to everyone who took the time to share their locker photos. Here is the "locker" I put together. It's to commemorate Tony Gwynn's last game. It has his full jersey and third base from the game, along with a couple game worn caps and sweat bands. A photo from Tony's last game, and some related baseballs were added.

Still room for a bat, cleats and glove! Also still to come, some descriptive place cards.

It would be easy for someone to add a nameplate if desired.

It looks a lot better in person.

I made this so the front plexi can be opened. Hinges on the left and small black velcro attachments on the right. I normally dislike hinges, but they came out okay. The velcro isn't visible because it's black. Two pieces of plexi because I was concerned about warping due to size. I think that was the right call.

I cut the metal part of the hangers so just a straight rod was visible and inverted it because the bottom end is threaded, allowing me to screw them into the top of the "locker."

Light is a wireless, remote control LED from Amazon (comes as a two pack or four pack, I believe). Inexpensive. You could easily go with plug-in puck lights and those might light the display better.

If anyone has any particular questions, feel free to send me a PM and I am happy to respond. I'm no handyman. Skill level to do this is maybe advanced beginner at most.

Esquire, great looking display. Where did you get your plexiglass from? How thick is it?

Thanks,
Mike

I got the plexiglass at Lowes. I was going to use Home Depot but they didn't have a plexi cutter onsite and I didn't want to take the chance of messing it up myself. One 36 x 72 sheet cut down to size worked. It's only 0.2 inches thick or so. Cost about $50. There is a much thicker option for $100, but it was extremely heavy and I was concerned about whether it would hold. In person, the plexi does not look cheap or like it should be thicker.
