Default 23 years... finally got my Barkley framed!

Had my photo taken with Barkley at a golf course I worked at in 1996, also had him sign my Suns jersey that same day. When he came back to my course the following year I had him sign the photo that I had made in to a plaque... now, over 23 years later I had all that cool Barkley stuff framed by a local professional and it is so awesome! Just hung it up last night!

I saw some of the framing process and it is was real interesting. Jersey has a template inside that keeps it real flat, then it's stitched through the black background. Same process for the plaque, but the plaque also has two screws in the bottom that don't go through the jersey. Frame is a shadowbox, my guy cut six layers of black foam core to put under the matting to raise it up. Love it!

I've golfed about 3 times in my live, Jeff, so no I don't.

If I had to guess it is either Kedron or the Oshawa golf club near the hospital?

Sorry Dale, but it's the famous Scarboro Golf & Country Club!
