Talking How do you Display your PC's??? Lets see them!

After running out of room with a smaller Display case, i just got myself a large Display and have almost finished setting it up!

I have noticed that a lot of people don't display there PC's and more often then not, PC's are stored in draws and don't come out enough!!!

With L.E.D lighting not effecting the cards at all, with no heat and zero U.V i think we need to get the PC's out and show them off!!!

Heres a few pics of mine, already ran out of card stands for the bottom shelf so just put some Game used floor pieces from Chicago stadium and the United Centre for now....












Now lets see yours!!!!

Done enough research on L.E.D lights to know they can't effect the cards when in the BGS/PSA and one touch cases...

Only 3 watts total in the display, also i have had another display under the same lights for 6 years + not a single problem,no fading at all....

Your opinion on the "entire" MJ market is deluded to say the least, however there are plenty of shady things going on and i'm the first to admit that!

Now.... Why don't you show us some of your cards!
I would love to see what you have, nothing better then seeing some old school players that deserve to be displayed!!!

From what i seen, you have a big collection of H.O.F's....
Let see them!

You're right... your lights and cases will prevent anything from happening to your cards.

My cards suck compared to yours, so i'll sit this one out, and enjoy your cards shinning oh so so bright!

OP- thank you for sharing your display.

I like seeing how people enjoy their collections. I'm like you, I have mine in a display case so I can enjoy it by seeing it every time I pass by.

Damn that looks good, looks like the same display as mine, except you got lights in there, and what looks like Perspex display tiers on each of your glass shelves, that's great, it's something I have been wanting to do to better use the height of each shelf. Do you have any pics of these without the cards on it? Did you buy or make them?

@Shaun
I just use all different size ultra pro storage boxes,50-150-200-250 stack them up and put a piece of plastic or glass or even wood on top of each shelf to make multiple levels....

The hardest thing is to set them up without having any light reflection on any card...

I also have the lights on remote on/off and a dimmer...

Hope that makes sense....

That's a sweet looking display case. I used to display my PC in table-top showcases, like the ones you see at shows..

I used to have it set up like this, but now moved to storage boxes since I have other collectibles displayed in it.



So now they're in these:

Nice display case & makeshift tiers! Where did you get the shelf? I've been trying to find a display case to display some stuff.

Also, love that lifesize MJ cutout and model on top. h
