Default Frame for my auto jersey???

hey guys i got myself an authentic player cut autographed jersey from upper deck and was wondering if i could frame it with a frame from wal mart or target any normal retail store??? the jersey is pretty long so i would probably fold it up some from the bottom.Have any of you guys tried to frame a jersey with a normal retail frame? i know they sell poster frames but am unsure about something for a jersey?? would it even be safe to frame it with a frame from a local retail store? any suggestions and feedback would be greatly appreciated! thanks

just save up and get it framed at a local frame shop when you can...they will have UV coated glass and stuff to protect it. Hobby Lobby (or look on ebay) also has jersey frames with the hangers built in to the frame that are nice...they are expensive though. You dont want to put a nice jersey in a cheap frame.

it wont fit (thickness) in a regular poster type frame...you nee a shadow box frame..they come in different thicknesses....a framing store will charge $250-and up, to do it...i had a mark messier auto'd rangers jersey framed about 8 yrs ago, paid $300..
theres different types..some have a front glass door that opens and you just hang the jersey on a clothes hanger inside -I dont like this look-sloppy.
you can do it longways, or fold the jersey just below the numbers and have the frame sideways- i like this look
im gonna do my marino auto'd jersey myself....i priced the frame alone was $166 at the art store..made to order, not sitting on shelf....i just saw online a good price on a jersey frame (link below) with options for colors, adding a picture or not, etc..for only $110..then do it yourself..put foam board inside jersey, fold sleeves the way u want, use straight pins to hold all in place(the frame store sews it down)...there are videos on youtube on how to do it.....just google framed jerseys, then hit images up top to see many styles..
