    Some cardinal highlights/trim (like you said) would definitely up the awesome-factor. Great collection though! Jealous!

    Nice. I haven't done much to mine, other than add ISU items all over the place.

    Got a Seneca-signed Jersey, AA-signed ball, a letter from Jamie Pollard and a basketball poster from the DG/Brackins era signed by the team, along with about fifty items with ISU logos on them.

    Re: ISU Mancaves

    Just start snagging ISU pictures off the internet then go get them printed at Office Max in black and white and some dollar store frames. Use those to fill in the black space between your more prize pieces.

    Maybe consolidate the pieces to one or two walls to give it a denser more filled in look. Like it is bursting with hisotry. The other wall can then be like an accent wall that throws your attention to walls with new peices on them.

    Wow. Very nice. You're way out of my league

    I took a poor shot of our pool room. Pennant is 1970's vintage. Veenker flag from 90's I think. Tried to take shot of old Cy logo ball from 70's Veenker, but too blurry.

    Re: ISU Mancaves

    I split my items between my home office and work office. Here are some photos of some of my items at home.


    A few items shown I like:
    -That one photo is us beating Wilt's team, that is a mag basketball coaches
    -A few signed Hoiberg/Rhoads items
    -That Ennis Haywood photo is the postcard ISU sent out that said "Ennis the Menace" to promote him for the Doak Walker award. He gave that to me and signed it for me (and that is one of his arm bands next to it)

    It's not shown, but I recently added one of the nets from Hilton from this year as well...one of my new favorite unique items.

    I also have Jamaal Tinsley's mail forwarding card from the MWL hall desk from when he moved out.

    In my office at work, I have one of Ennis' jerseys from his freshman year, a very old ISU banner, Okie State towel, etc...

    I too am always looking for cool/unique items...let me know if you are ever getting rid of something unique...i LOVE donations of cool items. You never know, I may have extra items to give back.

Jared homan game used signed jersey team signed football from the 2010 team and much much more.
