10 Ways Fans Display Their Backstreet Memorabilia

We wanted to see how other Backstreet fans displayed their VIP laminates, concert tickets, autographed items, or any special BSB memorabilia now that we are grown (and know what our parents were mad about when we taped things to paint).

….And you guys answered! We loved seeing everyone’s creative differences.

Enjoy (and become inspired)!


“I have created photo collages that are displayed in my lounge room, I have often been told “wow you have more backstreet boy photos on your wall then wedding photos”. My book case proudly displays some of my keepsakes.” – Ree

Elia Esther Jaimes Jimenez, fan since 1997, has QUITE a collection down in Mexico!

“Since the past years, well since I had my first VIP photo with the boys I started to put the photos instead of posters. So this happen in 2008 when I had my first VIP photo.

Today my room has photos with each boy and 3 with all of them. My favorite is the big one, the VIP I shared with my sister in Las Vegas.
 
I also have the laminates hanging in the cover of my guitar hero’s guitar (Yes the one from the video game Guitar Hero). The first to signed it were Howie, AJ, Brian and Nick in the Unbreakable tour here in my city Puebla. Kevin signed it for me, even he wrote my name, he did it on the BSB Cruise 2016.” – @fabysc

“I have been a huge Backstreet Boys fan for as long as I can remember. Love these five guys so much! Will always be a Nick girl! Here’s how I show off all these amazing memories!” – Shanna


“I display mine proudly at my desk at work. It is my mini shrine complete with tickets, lanyards, autographs, my photos with the boys and friends and family. Some stories from my BSB shrine include the last thing I did with my mom. In July, 2011, we went on a 3 day, 3 city adventure seeing NKOTBSB in LA, San Jose and Las Vegas. The LA show was my first time meeting the boys. It was fitting that my mom came with me because she was my biggest Fangirl supporter and knew how much it meant to me. When they did their Millennium tour, the best tickets I could get were the very back row. The day of the show she surprised me with 5th row tickets and my teenage heart almost exploded. Anyways, about 4 weeks after we returned from our NKOTBSB trip, she passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. It was tragic but I am so grateful I was able to have that adventure with her. First time meeting the boys, 3 shows, front row in Vegas and they pulled me up on stage and sang to me. All these amazing memories with my biggest supporter. It will always be a precious memory. On a lighter note, you’ll notice pictures with my bestie, Sable. BSB and fate brought us together. We are both from the same city, both went to the first round of IAWLT in Vegas (concert and soundcheck party) alone. We ended up in line next to each other and chatted. 4 years later, we are besties, always have a buddy to travel anywhere, anytime, as many times as we need to see the boys. We’ve also traveled Europe together and are the best of friends, all thanks to our love of BSB.. I love the boys, their music, the fans and all the love and support that comes along with being a proud member of the BSB Army. I’m so excited for everything to come and for all the new tickets and lanyards I plan on adding to the shrine. KTBSPA!” – Taryn

“I made this shadow box after IAWLT. I wanted to somehow display the poster with my name on it. So…what better way. This tour holds some amazing memories for me. I can’t wait to do the same with my Vegas poster and passes when it gets here.” – Melly

“I only have some M&G photos and posters, but in the past few weeks, I found a way to display a few of the special items I have.

 I have a baseball signed by all 5 guys from the 2016 cruise. My roommates and I dressed as members of the Rockford Peaches from A League of Their Own, so we happened to have baseballs on us. Long story short, we ran into one of the Boys’ friends, who liked my roommate’s outfit and commented on the baseball. We said how we’d love to have them autographed, and she said she’d make it happen. And she did! I placed this in a baseball display box.
 
I also got some playing cards, one of them signed by Howie. I found a backless frame and put 2 cards in their to display it.
 
And when I saw the Boys in Vegas for my birthday in March, I brought a sign that read, “May I have a rose for my birthday?” I was front row on the side, and Howie saw me (though I almost didn’t!) and tossed me his rose. It landed in the pit and a bunch of girls grabbed for it. A guy got it, and I remember him explained to what must’ve been his girlfriend or wife that the rose was meant for me. Much to her dismay, he gave me to rose, which by then was in 2 pieces. I dried it out and mounted it in a shadowbox.
 
Now I just need to figure out what to do with this bottle of water that Nick left on my table when I saw his final All American tour show in Nashville last year.” -Laura Fu

“I have my VIP passes and wrist bands and stuff in a cool thing I made for them. I have a ticket photo album for my ticket stubs. My favorite memorabilia that I have displayed are the custom kicks that Brian made me and gave me on the 2013 cruise.” -Amber America
