Looking for the best trading card displays to keep your cards safe and sound? Look no further!
Collectively, we’ve got so many cards the Retro Dodo office that we could use about 3 of every display below.
And trust me, we wouldn’t have any problem filling them.
But with desks, walls, bookcases, shelves, and more to fill, there’s a variety of different options that we need to display them all.
Below, you’ll find 6 of our favourite models to choose from, all ready to keep your cards safe from pesky pets and insects as well as anything else Mother Nature might throw at them.
Let’s crack on and check out the best trading card displays out there, shall we?
1. Collectors Cabinets
Have you ever seen cabinets as swish as these Collectors Cabinets? This flagship product is pretty much the most impressive way of displaying your favourite cards that I’ve ever seen in my life.
These displays aren’t just stands; they’re exquisite pieces of furniture that wouldn’t look out of place in the fanciest of offices. If you live with a partner that isn’t a massive nerd, then this is the one display that might make them sway towards letting you display your most prized cards.
Final, those Magic the Gathering cards can be out on display rather than carefully stacked in that ‘special drawer’ you’ve been allocated.
These cabinets have glass with an anti-reflective coating and are scratch resistant. The tops are hinged, and they have key fobs, number pads, and shock alarms.
Basically, it’s like Fort Knox for your trading cards!
2. DisplayGifts Pro UV 36 Graded Sports Card Display Case
Next up on this list of the best trading card displays is this DisplayGifts Pro UV 36 Graded Sports Car Display Case with shatterproof door.
With anti-theft locks, velvety lining, and protection against cards sliding around, this ready-made card display is the perfect way to show off your prized possessions.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re showing off rare Yu-Gi-Oh cards or rare Pokemon cards, they’ll all fit in this swish display case.
And, with an acrylic upwards opening door that provides 98% UV protection your cards won’t yellow overtime either. That’s not a real problem id you live in the rainy UK, but perfect for sunnier climates!
3. Carmanon Sports Card Display Shelf for Wall
With space for up to 36 cards, these shelves can be mounted to any wall and adjusted freely for any kind of card, short or tall.
You can even dedicate a shelf to one extremely special card right in the middle, the choice is all yours.
These shelves are so easy to install even a baby could do it (though it’s probably not advisable). The acrylic used makes it almost look as though the cards are floating… if you squint and have no concept of how gravity works.
4. Wildnut Card Display Case, Transparent Card Display
Next up on this list of the best trading card displays of 2022 is this double-sided, Wildnut Card Display Case, Transparent Card Display.
What I love about this case is that it’s transparent from both sides, meaning that you can see the detail on both the front and the back of the cards.
There are no screws or annoying assembly procedures with this display, and the great thing is that you can swap and change the cards inside whenever you want to keep things looking fresh.
All the major trading cards from either sports or gaming franchises will fit inside perfectly, and the acid-free, ultra-clear blocks will seal and protect your cards from dust, water, or any other kind of damage for years to come!
5. LED Sports Display Case
If you’re looking to make a real statement with your trading cards, then this customised LED Sports Display Case will be right up your street!
Choose your size and whether you want up to two LED colours integrated, and then hit that buy button!
During the day, this case has a stylish wooden colour to it, looking pretty sophisticated next to your leather bound books.
But come nighttime or when you close the curtains for gaming, it provides a nice glow in your favourite colour, illuminating your cards for all to see!
6. Custom Trading Card Displays
Sometimes less is more, and these Custom Trading Card Displays with name-display stands are an eye catching way of displaying your favourite cards.
With the ability to write whatever you want on the bottom of each stand with a little custom image created by laser printing, these display slabs can sit anywhere on any surface.
With four rubber feet, there’s no chance of them scratching your table or sliding off your shelf, and they can either hold single cards or graded cards in cases.
Choose from lots of different woods including cheery and rustic oak, and display your cards in style!
7. Wooden 3 Card Display Case
Like the 3 card display above, this Wooden 3 Card Display Case is a suave way of displaying your favourite trading cards like the original three starter Pokemon games.
At 9″ x 6″ and with a slick wooden finish, you can either hang or stand this frame in a place where everyone can see it.
With everything fully constructed and sleeves for your cards attached, this simple-to-use frame will keep your cards safe and secure day in, day out, all while showing your friends and family which the greatest cards are in your extensive collection.
The only thing left to do now is to choose which ones you love the most!
