Awesome find in the trash

Original poster
I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but since I have a photo to share I just decided to put it here. :)

Anyway, I live in a college town and every year most students' apartment lease comes to an end on August 31st. Naturally, most students who are moving have lots of things they don't want anymore so the apartment complexes actually block off a few parking spaces with caution tape and everyone just dumps their crap in those spaces. Every year I go... "thrifting" from one apartment complex to the other to see if I can find anything good (like a coffee or something) and this year I found an awesome piece of apple history. (see photo)

The poster is about 6 feet long and printed on quality paper. I imagine it may have been hung in an apple reseller store?

To my surprise it doesn't have any push-pin holes or anything like that. I really want to hang it in my room, but I don't know how to without damaging or making holes in the poster. Any ideas? :D

You could still use push pins, just don't put the pin through the poster.
Put it right outside of the poster, and let the poster

1.) sit on the pins
and
2.) the push part of the pin will clamp it against the wall.

Put them around the whole thing so it can't move.
