I figured I may as well post an update of the cases on the wall, especially now that they are overflowing (I even moved about 2 dozen some less custom ones to boxes for the moment). Time to either build more or just pony up and buy CPC's Large Frame
. I am also nowhere near ready to frame and hang the uncuts since that room is still just bare studs. Still, I guess it's progress since I got the decks on the wall? It was almost impossible to get a photo without a lot of glare/reflection, hence the odd angle.
Also, as noted in related thread and my signature, I have (most of) my entire collection posted on the http://playingcarddb.com/mycollection?u=6134
and also still at BGG (including on order, all using stock images).
Fun fact, when I first started I was CERTAIN I could keep it under 20 decks.
I'm still doing pretty well with my single deck collection, other than a few I have doubles of to use for play. My collection is semi-functional art, I usually just buy a single deck and ALWAYS open them. I'll look at them, check out the finish, etc and then put back in the tuck and put in a shelved display case to be removed and enjoyed on occasion, but mostly the tuck is on display. I would like to eventually get a few display boards, possibly like the acrylic sandwich style, so select decks can have cards removed for prominent rotating displays of the cards themselves over time. If I REALLY like the deck I may buy an extra copy for occasional card game play or buy an uncut sheet. I experiment with flourishing, but usually use decks that I've grown tired of or just use cheaper plain decks so my collection is not roughly handled.
I primarily collect modern decks with full custom courts and even better if they are full transformation decks. I will buy retro decks if they are special enough to me.
