Hey all...this is my first post, and I am glad I have found this group. I can't think of a better group to ask!

I am looking for a BIG photo collage/custom piece of the Champions! Possibly something with individual player baseball cards included. I bought the one that you put your tickets into with your own picture but I am looking for something BIGGER! Matted, framed, cool!!! I will drive anywhere in town to get it! Any frame shops out there have anything like this??

Thanks for your help!

Well, it depends how "big" you want the picture. There's a store in Woodfield called Field of Dreams that has a picture that I absolutely LOVE. The main picture is the pile-on on the mound in Houston after Game 4, and surrounding it are 6 baseball cards of various Sox players- Podsednik, Konerko, Crede (I believe), etc. Also, there's a plaque on the bottom that, etched in it, are the scores from each of the 12 playoff games the Sox played in and the opponent they faced.

I'd have to guess that the whole thing is probably 16x16, but that's just a ballparked (no pun intended) number, and it costs $79.95. Field of Dreams has a ton of commemorative World Series pictures ranging in price from $20 to at least $350.

I already bought the panoramic shot from game 1 (taken literally from our seats in section 139!). I am looking for something BIGGER and NICER than that. Something custom, something more matted with the individual cards. The guy on Michigan avenue has the pictures online, but nothing near what I want. I am looking at spending $300 - $500. I guess I could call him.

Thanks for the replies, but I am looking for bigger! My mother in law has a Boston one from last year- it is incredible. She got it at an auction and we have no idea who made it.
