baseball card room
We finally moved into our a new house and I have my baseball card room! I got my display case set up and I think it is starting to come together. I only took some pics of the display case but when I am finished with it I will post more. Thanks for looking.

RE: baseball card room
One thing I can suggest, Dallas, is that you rotate cards in and out and control when/how often blinds/curtains are open. Having cards on the East or West wall can be tricky anywhere (also North or South, actually, depending on where you live and what time of year it is). Essentially, in all this, just consider that horrid ruiner of cards: LIGHT. Those cards look great right now; just keep them that way.

Enjoy your room!

I look for career Chicago Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, Fire, Red Stars, and Sky players in their respective Halls of Fame. Add to that list some personal favorite lifers from past and present rosters, and everything else in my collection is up for trade.

Thanks for the advice. I only have one window in that room and there is never any direct sunlight coming through it at the cards. I was thinking about getting curtains in there too though for a little extra light blocking.

Thanks. The two in the back are pulled from rip cards and they are next to the cards they are pulled from. The other two are the red back minis that are numbered to 25.

RE: baseball card room
I would get curtains just to be safe.

RE: baseball card room
Great looking display! What is that trophy?

Is there any chance artificial light (room/cabinet lighting) can damage or fade cards? I have a small amount of cards on display myself and have always wondered that.
