Default Displaying uncut sheets

Hi all, any thoughts on how best to display them? I was thinking of just thumb tacking it to the wall but figured I'd see if anyone had any ideas first. It's of very little value, but reminds me of the uncut sheet a cousin had hanging on his wall as a kid, which I thought was awesome at the time.

I have a stack in the corner of my card room.

What I would like to have is something like this that fits full sheets. https://www.displays2go.com/P-6988/M...egory&sid=2436

You can buy top loaders for uncut sheets.They are a bit pricey. But if you only need one then it would not be too bad.

Thank you both. I'll have to look for a top loader or a poster frame or something then. They are 1990s sheets, so worth significantly less than anything that would hold it.

Uhhhhh...some of the 90's uncuts might be worth a little more than others. I would not just randomly put tacks in them...for example, the 1990 Topps might have some value, if it had a certain no name card in it...

How would I know who he was if there was no name on his card?!?? All seems a little silly to me

These are 1992 Topps sheets, and I can't recall there being any big names that year (even the Ryan doesn't have much value from what I recall). I paid about $3.33 a sheet (132 cards), so I'm hesitant to spend much to display them.

Chris, this won't be your problem, but another issue to consider is that ink fades when exposed to UV light...and different colors fade at different rates. That is the issue I am most concerned about. I have a number of uncut sheets from all eras and there isn't a good way to display them.

Thank you. That's a concern I have for displaying most of my stuff, and I haven't really found a good work around short of not having much of value in my collection . I tend to keep everything in my basement as it doesn't get much light. Cards and valuable autographs are stored in saves and everything else is as far away from the small window as possible to avoid issues.

I have a few uncut sheets; and once I wanted to display my Billy Ripken FF uncut sheet.
So I went to Home Depot, and bought two flat UV resistant panels, some mounting brackets, and some screws and nuts.
I took them home, drilled some holes in the panels, and built my own frame.

I am the WORST handy person ever, but even I was surprised at how good it came out. The whole project probably cost me less than $50; and I didn't even get injured!

Billy hung on my wall for years, and looked great.
The only problem I had was that it takes up a LOT of real estate space on the wall.
