Let me know and maybe it will become my next Monday M*A*S*H Discussion topic.
Today’s topic is: Do you have any M*A*S*H items on display?
Is Your M*A*S*H Collection on Display?
Five months ago, we discussed our collections of M*A*S*H memorabilia. Today, as a follow-up discussion, I’m curious to know if anyone has any M*A*S*H items on display in their house or their office or anywhere, really. I shared my own collection of M*A*S*H memorabilia in April. One of my favorite items is a CBS poster commemorating the series finale. I purchased it on eBay over a decade ago. It arrived in its original shipping tube with a CBS sticker on it. After looking at it once, I put it back in its cardboard tube where it stayed until late last year when I finally decided to have it framed.
It cost several hundred dollars to have the poster professionally framed. That’s why I put off having it framed for so long. Rather than buy a cheap plastic frame and risk damaging the poster, I waited until I could afford a nice frame. I wish I had waited another few months because a family member received a 60% off coupon that would’ve saved me a lot of money. But the poster looks very nice in its poster, which is hanging above the couch in my family room.
In addition to the poster, I have a black-and-white CBS press photograph hanging in my office in a cheap frame. And a black-and-white CBS press photograph from AfterMASH. Also, I bought a frame to display some of my M*A*S*H trading cards, although I haven’t had a chance to set it up yet.
Am I the only M*A*S*H fan with items on display in my house? Or do you have a poster hanging on your wall or an action figure sitting on a shelf? If not, are there any items you wish you had on display for all to see?
