Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>They are beautiful and should be framed. Have a professional do it since fabric demands a special technique.<br /><br />By the way, I've seen many with O'Toole but only one or two with Johnson. It must be considerably rarer.

Posted By: <b>Jeremy W.</b><p>All the advice says to have it professionally done. I was hoping for a less expensive way to do it. I guess they don't make 24X24 mylar sheets

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>That's a pretty high dollar item....I would think you would want to make sure it is properly framed and displayed.

Posted By: <b>mr. moses</b><p>a 2000.00+ item depending on condition. I'd say the one with 5 HOF's about 1 in 5 rarer in marketplace - that of course doesn't take into account a few factors - among which might be that the one with Johnson might be more popular and therefore less frequently traded. I'd say about 30-50 % premium on that one. The care of 100 year old satin and all fabrics for that matter are best preserved by a professional. If the lack of aesthetics or cost are factors I think there would be nothing wrong with the mylar/lucite type thing. They do make large top-loaders that exceed those dimensions and sometimes in fabric or craft stores you can get a pair of sheets and a binder in that size or larger. I don't think that in the SHORT-MEDIUM term you will hurt the piece as long as you keep it out of direct or florescent light. Just MO - no guarantees written or implied <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>
