Alright, this is my first main project with sports cards that doesn't really have to do with collecting or whatever, but something more creative and unusual. I am going to try and cover all of my walls with my duplicates of sports cards. I bought a Jumbo box of 2001 Series one, and a Hobby box of 2009 series one, as well as a few blasters, which truth behold gave me hundreds of dups. I put them all up on my wall after spending about 12 to get 10 packs of penny sleeves. I put them in by team, and up on the wall they go.

I've used 5 rolls of tape, and I've used about 8 teams so far. I have all the "blue" teams, some orange, and light green (Marlins), and I put them up in best order I could, with doubles of doubles and triples of doubles up next to eachother. I plan to do this with a LOT more cards, and hopefully cover my entire room with cards. I am a teenager, so yes, I am that tacky.

Thanks for looking, gotta run to wal-mart to get some more tape as I am out, do some work the next few days and I'll get an updated pic up! Thanks guys!

Yes, Yes he is  laugh.gif It's from the movie "The Hangover"... A man says "Is that a purse, are you kidding me?" He replies saying its a satchel...and Indiana Jones wears one...And the first guy says "SO DOES JOY BEHAR!" lol.

Cool idea......The angle that the walls come together make it look even cooler!

Update: I have had friends over all weekend and been watching the Yankees<3. No oppurtunities to get some work done so I will do it later. Thanks.

It is a lot of work, and that sounds like a great idea for a small room!
