Does anyone know where i can get a good looking bat display case for about 100 bucks? The problem im running into is that they all have black backgrounds and i have a black bat...any suggestions? thanks

The wood display cases are nice, but they become expensive if you have more than one bat you want to display. I've been using the $5 bat tubes, and I find they generally look pretty nice.

I got a display case from this company (http://www.collectiblesofthegame.com/catalog.asp?c=Display%20Cases&s=Baseball&s2=Bats). Really nice product, but they all seem to have black backgrounds. Not sure if you can get around that.

I got a 05' SOX world series champ logo case for 89 bucks. The price I just found is 149-129 now though. I will look for the exact place I got it from, they stapled their card to the back of it.

If you are getting a wall mount that holds the bat by the handle, make sure you tell whoever you order it from that it's a Louisville Slugger. When I got my wall mount, it was too small for the handle of the bat to fit in and they had to send me a new piece because the Louisville Sluggers are supposedly being made with thicker handles these days. :?: You should be fine with a tube or cube though, just watch out for the bracket like holders. (like this)

Esbrechtel, unfortunately I got mine from the link I posted earlier, "teamlogo cases". Here ia a link to their Sox logo case for $89.95(what I paid) however, I indeed got the World series champ logo for that price. Perhaps they raised the price when it became a popular seller. Maybe call them and see if they can do it at 89.95. Anyways, heres the link to the team logo $89 one.....
