Baseball Museum

A house wasn’t enough space to store Los Angeles business executive Gary Cypres’ extensive baseball memorabilia collection. So instead Cypres created a private baseball museum in a warehouse to house his collection, which is estimated to be worth $30 million. The warehouse has 30 different galleries and Cypres will open it to youth charity organizations from time to time. Items inside the museum include a game worn Jackie Robinson jersey, a fur coat worn by Babe Ruth and a rare Honus Wagner baseball card estimated to be worth up to $500,000.

You probably don’t need a warehouse to store all of your valuables but these secret hiding spots will keep your expensive items safe.

The Locker Room

Barry “The Hatchet” Vagnoni, a self-proclaimed wacky die-hard Eagles fan since 1954 built what he calls “The Locker Room” as an addition to his home to store all his Eagles memorabilia while also providing a gathering space for 100-150 people to watch games there. Not just anyone can gain entry into “The Locker Room” instead they must become a “Locker Room” member. “The Locker Room” was named the nation’s No. 1 man cave by Bud Light and Vagnoni won Dunkin’ Donuts’ “Philly’s Coolest Sports Fan.” “The Hatchet” doesn’t have to worry about fitting everyone around the TV but if you do, check out some tips to make fitting everyone easier.
