Beautiful setup man - not nitpicking at all as your cave is amazing but I would suggest wall cord covers for the flat screen and the neons as it would clean 'em up a bit. I'm jealous.

Its funny I never noticed the tv wires till I posted the picture. I have to check on it because the wires are through the wall so Im not sure if something fell out. And I want to hear opinions so Thank You.

Beautiful room and well displayed. Hopefully once my kids are a little bit older I can put something like this together.

I thought about that, but right now I'm content with them. Upgrading to 4 or 5 does little for me, 6 or 7 I would love but wife would kill!!!

Thanks, when I started my goal of getting these rookie cards I had the thought in mind of giving these to my kids so grade was not an issue cost was the issue. I can't tell you how challenging it was to find some of these cards with low grades. It was easier to find higher grades. But anyway I was blessed with two kids. Both girls!!!! So looks like I'm taking these to the grave. (Well maybe grand kids)

Very nice, only difference I would have done (besides switch it to Mets) is build a bar with shelves in back and a mini-fridge.

Awesome pics! The display looks amazing.

Where did you buy the plastic display holders for your graded and toploaded cards? I'm looking for the triangle type card holders that I can use to display cards in a case.

The tall skinny ones are from ikea think they are called the detolf and are about 80$ if memory serves me correct. The big display with the cards are from a local hallmark store that went out of business.
