Default Since Everyone Is Showing Their Type I Cobb and Ruth Photos....

.....Why doesn't anyone frame them? Am I the only one? Surely these photos would look much nicer in a decent frame with a nice matte hanging on a wall (rather than a dumb old PSA holder or no holder at all). Why??

Some of mine are framed. Usually I take the pictures that I post as soon as I receive them. I guess I should take some after framing!

Well... I can't disagree with you. HOWEVER, my house was gutted by a freak water disaster so I count my lucky starts every day that my photos were not hanging on those walls. They are much easier to store in archival folders safely to preserve. I enjoy my collection virtually.

The vast majority of my photos are not hanging either. What I have begun to do is print out high quality copies and hang those. No one can really tell the difference and the originals are safe and sound.
I started doing it with a few autos.

Johnson check.
It is really hard to tell in person, especially if you have never seen the original

Bullet dodged with the water mishap. Great to hear that your many gems are safe Ben. Water and fire threats are always lurking in the back of my mind, so I keep everything away from the house.
