Welcome to this week’s installment of Kim’s Stuff! When I was pregnant with Lil DeckACards, DeckACards and I went to our first Cardinals Caravan and started collecting autographs – we’ve gone every year since. We’ve also been lucky enough to score some awesome autographs outside of the caravan – including Adam Wainwright during a rehab game in Springfield, Bob Gibson and Lou Brock during our first spring training game this year, and our most recent accomplishment…more than nine different signatures during the St Louis Cardinals vs Springfield Cardinals exhibition game last Monday. We got autographs from Matt Holiday, David Freese, Mark McGwire, Mike Matheny, Allen Craig, Tyler Green, Jason Motte, and Matt Carpenter.
With all of these autographed balls running around our house, I’ve been looking for a fun way to display some of them in Lil DeckACards’ bedroom. And then I remembered seeing these cute baseball podiums from Land of Nod a few years ago. They will look absolutely adorable in her room!
The podiums can be purchased individually for $8.95 or in a set of 3 for $21.95, and buyers can choose from 3 different finishes. Of course, they aren’t a permanent storage solution for every ball because they don’t protect the balls (I would hate for anything to happen to those Gibson or Brock baseballs!), but I think they are a fun was to display some of the kids autographed baseballs or baseballs from their own little league games (think, first home run, etc.). Enjoy!
