How do you display your putter collection...

mrrelish1mrrelish1 Members Posts: 121 ✭✭
Just wanted to share a few pictures of my new putter display case. Let me know your thoughts. This is my work office where my wife has no say. It took me a while to figure out how to display the putters in a safe way. Please post pictures of your displayed putters. Its nice to look at everyday instead of storing away and not being able to appreciate. In the display I have a three scottys (left) 1 tp mills handmade (middle) and three bettinardis (right).

    Only thing I'd change is the light seems a bit harsh

    The camera did not take a great picture. Looks better than the picture shows.

    that is great work right there



    My 4 expensive putters are now upstairs in my bedroom hiding in the closet



    I went down into the basement a few weeks and some teenage boys were visiting. These little yahoo's were violating Uncle Cardy's 1st rule of basement visitation ... playing with my clubs in the bar area / man cave. Teenage boys don't like to be told off in front of teenage girls but c'mon dudes, follow the dad's code of conduct or risk being drawn and quartered

    This is amazing. Great display. This is not the art of putting but putting as art.



    Unfortunately cameras don't see things same as the human eye but I trust that this should look stunning in person.



    What can I say... I have mine at my home studio in a fishing rod stand I bought on sale. not the fanciest display but quite handy and practical. I don't have a collectors item yet.

    That looks fantastic!



    I usually think about building my own putter rack. Then I realize that I'm lazy and I look into buying a putter rack instead. When I find one I want, I proceed to find something else I'd rather spend money on and save the putter rack idea for later. Wash... Rinse... Repeat...

    Awesome display.



    The only concern I would have is the heat from the light on the middle grips. Those little bulbs throw a ton of heat. Ask me how I know. Hint: jersey cabinets. image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
  • mrrelish1mrrelish1 Members Posts: 121 ✭✭
    The camera is making the light look really bright. That's not the case. I also used a bronze glass that softens it even more. I will try and update the picture. The lights do throw off some serious heat but seem to be far enough that the grips don't even get warm.



    I put these behind glass and with a lock so no unnecessary touching is going on. The display underneath is open with putters you may touch and putt with. Have some old gamers there. Cant take any chances.

    Looks fantastic!

    I may run this idea by the wife and see what she thinks. She's getting tired of me buying more racks and hanging them on the wall.

    Did you just dig it out between the studs and frame it? Looks a little narrower than 16 inches, but that may be because of the framing.

  • mrrelish1mrrelish1 Members Posts: 121 ✭✭
    Yes just framed between the studs. Ended up to be 13 1/2 inches. I did not want to start **** with the studs...

    Very nice! I saw the new GE hue lights at best but yesterday and immediately thought how cool that would be with this. Basically endless color options.

    Looks awesome!!! You could change the lights to LED bulbs to avoid the heat issue, they are cool to the touch and dissipate heat in a different manner than a traditional bulb.



    Outside of that I just display mine on one of the stainless steel putter racks that Scott sells. Doesn't look anywhere near as classy or clean as yours, really amazing job and creativity!
  • Leonelaguilar1Leonelaguilar1 Members Posts: 6
    This is really cool, congrats man!



    Can anyone guide me to a post that refers to which putters might be considered as collectible?



    Thanks

    That’s display is top quality, the wife said I can turn the dining room into my putter room but haven’t got around to it yet.

    That display in the OP is awesome.

    That was exactly me. But thought I'd look around for a simple stand to use because the head covers keep getting squashed and crumpled using a bag..



    Found that a fishing rod stand from the local boating & camping shop does the trick perfectly.

    Here's my 8802/Napa styles. They've got their own home. The rest (mainly anser styles) are now in the 2nd stand.
