Default Card Display

Hi everyone,

I was curious how you guys display your cards? Ideally, one day Id like to put my collection in a few display cases. The only problem is these cases only hold cards of certain sizes. I dont own any of the 1965 TOPPS cards yet, but I looked up the dimensions and they seem enormous, especially when graded. Is there something you guys do to accommodate all card sizes?

Thanks!
Jerry

I solved this by purchasing a vintage display case and using picture stands of various sizes to prop up items. I rotate card themes through the case occasionally just for fun. The other great thing about a large display case (if you have the room) is you can include companion pieces to liven up your displays. I like to try and pick up wrappers, boxes, advertising, etc. that complement my cards.

Here are a couple I've done in the past.

Wheaties Display

Jeff, enjoyed looking at these. A Chicle display would be cool - cards, wrapper, premiums.

I've gone the same way as Jeff, and purchased a display case. I switch it out occasionally... add some cards, take some away, etc.

Beautiful displays guys! As a baseball football hockey and football card set collector, space is always a concern. So my cards remain mostly raw in boxes.
