I don't know how many people do this. I used to have photos from every major league ballpark I'd been to (unfortunately I don't have any from Baltimore's old Memorial Stadium...sniff) on display on my cube at work. Talk about a conversation piece...I've had people be just in awe of that. "***in' awesome", one co-worker told me.

I've since arranged them on posterboards and then frame them, with the ticket stub from each game under the ballpark. I have three framed posters, one for each league and one for parks that don't exist anymore. So in my home I have a constant reminder that I still have...let me turn around for a sec...12 more to go, seven National League and five American League. I'm going to Nationals Park this year and hopefully the new Yankee Stadium (Target in Minnesota is a long shot but I may try), but I'm not going to Miami until they get a new one.

Yes, I'm a total geek. But I'm a nice guy.

Whoa, that's an awesome idea. Now...if I only had a cube/wall to post something like this one at work. Sadly, we all just have desks at my office!

Kurt, what does your setup look like? Got any pics?

Oh man, that's a good one...I really gotta get a photo here!

It's always fun sharing ideas, it's not bragging. My wife bought me a US map and some tacks a few years back to keep track of my travels. I do a full size tacks with the logo for the majors and use a small blue-head pin for the minors. Here's a shot of it. Photobucket

Hope this post didn't sound like I was bragging, I really don't touch a lot of you here.

Wow! That is most excellent, no kidding...even better than what I have...when I have a chance I'll get a photo up.

The only existing hockey arenas I've been to are Wachovia in Philly and Nassau Coliseum in Long Island. I went to the Spectrum a lot, and the Meadowlands Arena which I think is gone now. Pretty pathetic...I need to work on that.

I do hockey arenas too.

Hi Kurt -

I, too, do posterboards of stadiums I visit (lapel pins on index cards with date, league, teams, etc). Let's see if I can show you a photo to see if it's similiar to what you do.

I have two maps of the US (I think I posted photos of one of them somewhere - maybe a discussion - on this site, this evening) with lapel pins in them.
