PostSubject: How Do You Display Your Collection?    Thu Mar 22, 2012 1:06 am

So I know most of us have most of our comics stashed away in long boxes, or on bookshelves. But do you display any? If so, how do you show them off?

I'm trying to figure out a way to showcase some of my better books, that doesn't take up a ton of space. Do you just hang them on the wall? If so, what sort of case or hardware do you use? I know they make tons of different ways to do it, but I've never seen anyone's collection actually displayed.

Post pics of ideas if you've got them! I'm open to anything at this point!

I used to hang up my better issues I wanted to display the same way I do some figures, thumb tacks. Very Happy I was thinking about getting some of those hangable frames at one time, but the cost is up there. Another thing I was looking into is what my old shop used to have. Not sure what it was called, but it was made out of plastic with a black back and had clear pockets to slid your bagged and boarded comics in. It looked good hanging on the wall with the higher end books in it. I havent really seen anything like that for sale on any websites, though.

I would love to find those things, but not sure if they are still being produced. Times have changed since the late 80's/ early 90's when I was going to the shops. Back then they didnt have re-sealable bags like now. It was all so simple. Slap a comic in the bag with a bopard and tape it down. Very Happy

I display a lot of my loose issues on a magazine stand, picked this up when the Hollywood Videos were all closing.

That's a cool idea.

So I was going to finally setup a bit of my comic collection this week, but I got the flu something fierce, and have essentially been in my bedroom occasionally on my laptop.

But I now have 2 Ikea Detolfs for statues and busts, and I ended up with a couple of decent bookshelves when we reorganized another part of our house, so I should be able to get something done in the next week or two.

Soon.....my precious.......soon.
