I’ve just updated my site www.BaseballCardDispalyCase.com with updates on the project. I’ve just completed the final full scale mock up and am waiting for a project quote and design ideas from a local woodworker. The pic to the left shows off some of my PSA graded T206s being displayed in my office in the display case mock up. The update covers the original layout that would accommodate 30 baseball cards, the first design sketch on scrap paper, 3D renderings of the individual pieces of the display case, the trial of the shelving and the final mock up. Check back here or at the site for more updates on the ultimate display case for your baseball cards!

Another key piece of gear for protecting your baseball cards are toploaders. Ultra Pro premium toploaders seem to have one of the best reputations and are relatively inexpensive. Toploaders prevent creasing, bending and corner ware. I try to pull key cards as soon as I find them and get them into toploaders to prevent warping that can occur in storage. The use of protective sleeves and toploaders allows you to view and display your baseball cards at any time without having to worry damaging them. The Ultra Pro toploaders are 3”x4” and fit all standard size cards, they do however leave a lot of room for movement with T206 cards and some of the newer cards (such as Allen and Ginter released by Topps) that are of similar size. Also, with many baseball cards containing game used memorabilia you may need to get thicker toploaders that allow for the added thickness of these specialty baseball cards.

The first step in protecting your baseball cards is putting them into protective sleeves. Soft PVC-free polypropylene are economical and go along way to preventing surface wear on your baseball cards. This is especially important for cards with autographs or game used memorabilia. I found these MAX Protection soft sleeves on eBay and went with them because they have a special UV inhibitor which protects the color.
