I have a couple of vintage decks from the old Stork Club in New York City that I'd like to frame for display on a wall. I could have a frame shop custom make one, I suppose, but I thought something like this might already exist for card collectors. Any ideas?

There aren't many good off-the-shelf playing card display solutions.

One thing on the market are these clear plastic cases, perhaps a little over-priced for what they are but nice and simple. Decent quality from here:

If you really want to display them in style, you'll need a few more decks and one of these...

http://deckfinesse.co.uk/solid-top-display-case/ or http://deckfinesse.co.uk/glass-top-display-case/

But then I would say that, Deck Finesse is my company!

Unfortunately I've never found a cheap but decent quality box wall-frame for just a few cards but I would have thought you can have one made for less than the cost of the above two suggestions.

You can pick up vintage 2-deck wooden boxes pretty cheap on ebay. They wouldn't be on a wall I know but I think that wall displays flatten the object and make it harder to appreciate as a deck of cards. I would say the wooden box is the natural home for a paper deck of cards. Smile

The Kings Wild Display is really beautiful and I would highly suggest it for priceless decks!

I personally made this display for my less expensive decks and it looks great!

Feel free to use the idea!
