Ultimate Reds Room
So, I'm in the process of coming up with designs for MY ultimate Reds room and I noticed a couple of postings out there of some other Reds fans hoping to get an idea of what to do. I do have a lot of memorabilia collected, but still have a few things left to get. I'll share what I have on some upcoming blog posts, but for the time being, I've decided to share a couple of pictures. Probably the greatest inspiration is the Ultimate Reds Room in the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. The way that the collectibles are displayed is just amazing! In addition, they do a great job using old team photos, pennants, and posters that makes it look great but not too overwhelming.
The other photo I found is a fan room where someone had a TON of jerseys and some really cool framed posters that I would like to have (especially the 1975 Champion poster). Again, not too cluttered and enough cool stuff that say's "Hey, I'm a Reds fan and I'm proud to show it!" Not sure if I want to display some of my best baseball cards like my Rose and Bench rookies when I finish my Ultimate Reds Room, but I've got plenty of time to decide. Of course, I won't be able to have my fan room until my basement is finished, but hopefully this time next year I'll be kicking back and watching the Reds in my own little Reds Man Cave!
