I'm only 21 but I've been collecting different sports memorobilia for a while. In my "man cave", I have NY Giants stuff on 1 side, this includes plaques, super bowl balls, and some figures, nothing really big though. The other side is where all the good stuff is. I've been collecting baseball stuff the longest so I have a bunch of Yankees photos, autographed baseballs, bobbleheads, commeretive pin set, a case with a bunch of cards of the player I PC, and my own trophies from when I used to play. Now I'm going to work on adding some more Giants stuff and then work on my favorite soccer team(Inter) and favorite hockey team(Devils). I also have limited funds so it might take a while.
So I recommend just getting some framed photos of your favorite teams to start. You can probably get them real cheap on the bay or in some stores. I'd definitely frame the autographed jerseys and put them on the wall. If you have any autographed baseballs, I'd buy a frame for them and put them on the wall too.

My buddy is a Yankees fan and in his basement is his cave. On the wall he has the retired Yankees numbers painted and also a pair f seats from the stadium.
Idk who your team is but the kohls by me had a nice Yankees canvas painting. Say 24x36 for only 40$ and then there is ALWAYS KOHLS coupons

thanks man the retired number thing sounds awesome

Paint wall team color and add retired numbers like stera8 said. Hang your best items on the walls, and get some clubhouse chairs from Steiner if you can afford them.

the club house chairs might be a while the whole starting over is gonna be a lot of cash
