I bought myself that 1980 Topps Vending box that was a bust (separate thread) and 5 graded cards in Mint 96 from dhcards on ebay (1978 George Foster, 1978 RBI leaders (Hisle/Foster), 1978 HR Leaders (Foster/Rice) and 1978 Batting Leaders (Carew/Parker). I absolutely love the Foster card & will put all of them with scans in the registry.
My other card related present was crown molding/shelving I put up in my office. It took a good 12 hours to complete the project but it is well worth it. It is a great way to display cards and I've attached a couple of pictures for all to get an idea.
In case you're interested in doing something similar, here is the details. Cost for project: ~$75. Size of room: 12' x 10 I bought the molding at Lowe's and I used Crown & base board both at 3.25" size. I used 1.5" L brackets into about every other stud (screwed in!) to support the shelf or "base board" molding. I then put the crown molding in by inserting up against the base board ridge and nailing them into each base board. You need a compound mitre saw to cut the crown molding because it is a 3 dimensional cut (we had to go to a cabinet maker to have them make the cuts). I used high-gloss ultra-white paint (you only need a quart).
The cards just simply lean up against the wall. The 3.25 shelf also supports cubed baseballs and barely fits a bobble head. If you have a larger room or ceilings higher than 8 feet, I would recommend using 3 5/8 molding and baseboards, which will give you extra space to put bigger objects. I also recommend that you put the molding just about 5 to 7 inches below any door or window frames, which gives better eye appeal. This will allow you to frame magazines or other larger objects.
I'm considering putting in a very small molding border at the top of the wall/ceiling for a cleaner look.
