Im building a jersey display case for a friend for a Jim Brown autographed jersey , I was wondering if any one has any ideas or seen any hardware out there to mount the jersey on the 1/4 plywood back. The best way to descride the display case is, kind of like a hanging wall cabinet without shelves. It comes off the wall 3 1/2 inches with a rabbeted face frame with display glass set in it. And a 1/4 bb plywood backing on the back of the case . Just need some ideas on how to mount the jersey on the backing. thank you

We have similar ones at my school. The backing in ours has a little batting in it and the jerseys are pinned to the backing.

Maybe an insert of acid free foam board covered with fabric and then use the pins as suggested by MrsN
