6 ways to display and organize baseballs

Unique Ways to Display Your Kid’s (or Husband’s) Baseball Collection

Your home should reflect the things your family loves.

And, while you may want to relegate the baseball collection to the garage or attic, with a little editing, and some new display ideas, you can you honor your boys’ interests without making your home look like a man cave.

Whether it’s an autographed souvenir from their favorite team, or a game ball that commemorates a great season, it’s part of their story. And, if it’s special to them, it should be part of their surroundings.

We’ve all seen those traditional wood and glass display cases and acrylic cubes (which are really better for archival purposes…and sports bars!), but, if you’re looking for something a little different, there are other options.

Here are 6 unique ways to display baseballs in your home that both you and your boys will love!


1. On the Wall

I love these new racks from Restoration Hardware. They have an oil-rubbed bronze finish that fits in perfectly with the (very trendy) industrial look. It comes in three specialized sizes.

2. On a Podium

PB Teen offers a mini-display podium that can sit on a nightstand or shelf. It’s crafted of sustainable wood with classic molding and a front-facing label. It’s a great way to personalize your memento with all the game-day details. The Land of Nod offers a similar display stand (at a lesser price point). Packaged in sets of three or sold individually, these come in honey, blue, or red, and would be perfect for that ball autographed by the T-ball team.

3. Under Glass

Everything looks better under glass (even baseballs!) Grab an over-sized vase or cloche and instantly upgrade the look. Here are a few examples for inspiration.

4. In a trophy

Vintage trophies are great! (Sometimes you can find them on etsy.)

5. In a Wire Basket

Use a wire basket to reflect your boy’s favorite pastime in your decor. Try a vintage piece, or grab one like this from Crate and Barrel.

6. In a Wooden Crate

Most Lovely Things created this truly “lovely” display of her son’s baseball treasures using wooden crates. Look for old soda crates or vintage wooden boxes to get this look.

So, whether you add a baseball display to your son’s room or add a collection in the den, with a little creativity, your home can truly reflect the things you all love.

  • Can I also display my *own* baseballs using these methods, or do I have to find a man & do it for him?

    • You can definitely display your *own* baseballs and your daughter’s too! Thanks for stopping by!

      You go girl! Everyone seems to think just men are into baseball. I was at FanFest during the All Star Game here in Minneapolis and a vendor had “street signs” that said MAN CAVE…I asked him where he kept the WOMAN CAVE signs, reminding him too that women are into baseball and collecting memorabilia. His answer was that’s just what his supplier sold. AND I am tired of women’s “baseball” shirts, etc being pink.

    Thanks for the ideas. I especially like the On the Wall display.

  • Love these ideas, but where in the world do you find a mason jar that big?

    • That’s a good question. I found some 5 gallon vintage jars on etsy and ebay. The largest one in current production seems to be a 1 gallon size. Let me know if you can find it somewhere else, John. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Love all of these! Thanks for sharing!
