Remember when the Twins won the World Series…for the first time—1987? This is actually a project we did recently, in April, for a guy who saved ticket stubs, a homer hanky and even confetti from the big parade held to celebrate. It was a crazy day and this piece brings back the memories for me! I love the confetti pieces, which were mostly shredded computer reports. There is even a pair of earplugs that were handed out at the stadium for those who could not take the super loud cheering sounds from their fellow fans. #throwback Thursday #Tbt #twinsmemorabiliaframong — atFASTFRAME EAGAN MN.
The pic above is a little add-on item we did for our client. If you can’t quite tell what is happening from the picture, well it is a decapitated Cardinal. In case you don’t remember, it was the Cardinals that we met–and ultimately beat–in the World Series. My client had a little plastic Cardinal, decapitated and all, that he’d saved. He wanted it in the framed collage but it really did not fit in the frame well. So I made him a little display box for that little guy–complete with a bit of a turf mat, a little stick and some of the confetti/ticker tape. I got a really nice smile from him upon pick up!
