    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.

    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.

    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.

    Just moving into my new place now but I had an awesome room at my last place. I will be putting the Iowa State room version 2 up here in the coming weeks. But currently I have a game used autographed Sage rosenfels white jersey. An authentic seneca wallace style football helmet. Jared homan game used signed jersey team signed football from the 2010 team and much much more.

    I love the mancave photos. My wife and I had a solid mancave in Auburn, but dismantled it for a move.

    My family and I have so much ISU stuff it is disgusting. If anyone has ever been in the grad college at ISU...my family owns all the gear there (it will be tamed down due to retirements of key people).

    Odd things we own include a giant standee of Johnny Orr among soooooo many other vintage pieces.

    For a mancave, Jersey's will do wonders. Old signage or flags do wonders for space that is lacking. You don't have to frame them and they take up space/add color. Old flags are fairly inexpensive.
