What young fan of baseball doesn’t have their own collection of balls and cards? Unfortunately, it’s only too easy to lose your baseballs, even after you grow up into an adult. If you’re not mindful, your ball could slip under the bed or chest of drawers, and become nigh impossible to find in time for the next game. Now, you could place the ball safely in a drawer, but where’s the fun in that? This article will walk you through acrylic baseball cases to store your balls in when you’re not playing with them.
First of all, acrylics are incredibly durable. If you’re going to place your baseballs in something, it’s best to do so in a container that won’t suffer damage. Acrylics are not impacted by mold or dampness, and so will not become weaker if exposed to such conditions. Neither can they provide fodder for termites or the like. This is one reason behind the longevity and durability of acrylics and is a factor that makes this quite safe for use in objects like cases.
Additionally, acrylics resemble glass in their transparency and clarity. So you can view your baseball at all times after placing it inside your case. You can keep the case in your drawer to allow it to be viewed all the time, as well as to remind you to keep the ball inside once you’re done with it.
As the picture shows, the ball inside the case manages to look quite attractive as a showpiece in its own right. You can see for yourself how easily visible the ball would be through the acrylic display. Though it isn’t made of glass, it very much resembles the look of that material, but also has the advantage of being shatterproof. And unlike other clear plastics, it is completely transparent and see through, so the viewer can see the contents behind it as clear as day.
Plus, acrylics make for excellent cases because of the great degree of ease with which they are fabricated and shaped. The process of shaping it after it has been heated is a simple and straightforward one. Accordingly, it can be molded into a great variety of shapes, including sphere, cubes, and pyramids. It is not a difficult matter to fashion a cube from heated acrylics, and the process can make for a cool and unique looking bag in a short amount of time. Take a look at the picture below
Getting a case like this in glass would be a more expensive ordeal since glass is a lot more difficult to shape and mold into different shapes and sizes than the vastly more malleable acrylic. Since acrylics are so easily molded, it is a lot less expensive to mold them into different shapes, like the classy cube up there. You can get a uniquely different looking acrylic case for your baseball at a fraction of the cost that would be entailed if you go for such a case in glass, wood or metal.
