Anyone willing to share photos of their basement full of Steelers memorabilia aka their Steelers Man Cave?
This is a really neat video of a Steelers fan's basement I found on Youtube.

Also, here is a neat one of a Redskins fan. (Scroll down to mid-page)

Its amazing how many items you can accumulate over the years by going to games and getting gifts from people who know you are a die-hard.

In the middle of starting my Steelers man cave. I have a hodge podge collection of plaques, posters, pictures, misc gifts and stocking stuffers, news paper clippings, bar signs, etc, etc for all 3 teams so it will probably just be a Pittsburgh sports team cave rather than just Steelers ( but mostly Steelers items). I have a neat little 3 seat bar and am going through and buying some cheap black frames at the dollar store to make things more uniform. Also in the middle of deciding on what to replace the ugly hell-red carpet with that someone put in before I bought the place (or somehow get a wall decoration of a Heinz Ketchup bottle that looks like it is pouring onto the carpet lol)

The man cave you linked to looks nice and cozy - much better than having to fight my wife over the living room tv after the game is over so I can switch to another game or be able to watch post game shows - thanks, gave me some nice ideas :thumbsup:

I would just start displaying stuff. You will move things around as you get more stuff. You will get more stuff if friends and family know that you collect Steelers stuff.

Hey now! I'm in the middle of building above my 3 car detached garage. Doing it myself with some help here and there. Its going to be my Steeler game room / guest house. Dimensions 42 ft x 30 ft with a 10 ft ceiling.

My home was built in 1852 so my cave is old with no option of finishing it.

So, I'll have a Steeler man loft.

My son and I live in our man cave on Sundays. :helmet:

Sunday ticket on the big screen, red zone/game mix on the ipad. :popcorn:

Wife brings down food: tacos one week, pulled pork sandwiches another, subs the next........ :drool:

Steeler jerseys and Terrible Towels adorn the walls. :tt05:

Heaven begins on Sunday! :banana:

I am in process of redoing mine, nothing too fancy or over the top though. I have a 10x12 room with a 47" tv, guitar gear, and some jerseys/other swag on the walls. I plan on adding two more TV's so I can watch 3 games at once (sunday ticket through ps3, ps4, tablet, pc etc).

That will be a nice sized room. My Steelers room is 10' by 12'.

Hi Guys and Gals,

First time poster from Toronto, Canada.

Saw this thread and had to show you guys what my man cave looks like.

The 2nd pic usually steals the show as those are full size replicas organzied by how the teams finished last season.

Enjoy :tt03:

ps more to follow once I resize the pics :thumbsup:

I have been lucky enough to obtain a 9 ft, solid oak bar with a footrail to start my man cave in the front part of our house. I have my Steelers flag, pennants, clock on the wall. I have my Steeler's pennant hanging with my Steelers, Pirates and Penguins bumper stickers. Then there is the shelf behind the bar that holds my male and female Steelers trolls, my Steelers hardhat and my Steelers replica football helmet. On another shelf is the Steelers nutcracker and a little Steelers rocking horse Christmas ornament. My buddy who is from Pittsburgh has supplied me with a Heinz Field ketchup bottle, 2 Iron City beer cans, an Iron City Salutes 1979 World champs Pirates beer can, and a '91 '92 Back to Back Stanley cup Penguins champions can.They sit on my book case across from the bar along with my Pittsburgh Steeler's #1 fan license plate and a really cool Steelers NFL team puzzle with the Steelers logo on the front of a round lidded can. This bar is shared with all of my Jimmy Buffett, Parrot Head stuff but rest assured the Steelers are #1 especially during football season.

I'm impressed with what I'm seeing here. Thank goodness my entire family is steelers fans. So there's no cave. It's the entire house. Have to take pictures when I get home. So pumped for the season!

actually considering moving within a 20 mile radius within the next 6 months - anytime I see a listing with a nice sized basement I get visions of a glorious SB party with the Steelers being triumphant . . .and fantastic time with the wife afterwards - haha

I think the bible says something about worshiping a golden Calf. This strikes me as that on STEROIDS.

best bet is to go into a program where you can keep % scale locked for height and width and just type in 75 - 66%

that is, unless there is a scaling feature for pics on here I'm unaware of

this is great - very understated in a good way - I myself can appreciate the man caves that are littered with five million things, but, would never want that for myself - too much shit to clean

this is awesome - seems cozy and spacious

got to leave room for all the food and booze, right?

Thanks SteelFury02 :tt03:

Beer fridge is only steps away in the laundry room which I didn't show lol

Anyone that has seen it in person loves the helmet wall. Mainly for the fact that they are full size replica helmets. Took me about 4-5 years to collect them all when I got serious about it.

The black wall originally was supposed to have the sleeve stripe to make it look like the black jersey. Just I now happen to like the plain black; I have the decal to do it just not sure if I ever will.

do you have a lot of visitors or is it you and your immediate fam/significant other that use it the most?

it varies for me - at one point in undergrad the house I lived in with 4 other guys (and practically everyone's woman(en) was living there too) we each had our designated seats, but one "best seat" we'd all take turns claiming, but you had to buy the pizza for everyone else (good trade off for all taking turns) we also had our favorite Steelers mugs/glasses/mug shots, that sat lined across the tv (not HD at the time) and they could only be moved from there to wash (superstitious I know) - we also had a dry erase board where we would keep funny things written on there from each game day - fun to look back and see - we'd post pictures on there as well - some a little incriminating - HAH!

good times to be had - now the wife and the kids have taken over so my enjoyment is of a different kind, but better overall :thumbsup:

Really nice. Out of all the things I have seen posted, this is something that I think I could display. I really don't have much Steelers memorabilia and I can't really think of anything that would really appeal to me other than the NFL team helmets rack you have. I usually just watch the games on my laptop that aren't televised here (since I stopped ordering sunday ticket years ago) in a jersey with a beer and that is it.

I have things that my wife has gifted me over the years, but I have no idea where most of them are. I think they might still be boxed up in the basement from my last move 4 years ago.

I need to organize mine, but I have framed autoed jerseys, a painted cabinet full of helmets, some full size auto helmets, countless pictures, and the crown jewel of them all, 6 replica Super Bowl rings, two personalized to myself.
