I now have quite a large collection of ESP decks, and was trying to figure a way to display them. My goal is to display the various back designs of some, the face designs of some, and front AND backs of others.

Another issue is card size. Some are bridge size, some poker size, some Parlour size and some Jumbo sized.
I considered a football jersey cabinet, because of the depth, but Id need 6 or 7 to show just the regular sized decks.

I also looked into the acrylic designs, but displaying only 12 designs at a time would require many cabinets.

I have everything photographed online (currently over 65 different ESP decks) including books, booklets, individual tricks utilizing ESP symbols, and other various items.
Its going to be near impossible to display it all, but Im still looking at how it could be done.

Feel free to share your thoughts. I may have already considered it, but maybe not.

Given the fact that you have various sizes of cards, perhaps the best way to display them is to build or have-built a custom frame. Put the larger cards in the center and then have the others assembled in some manner around them. I would have glass or plexiglass on the front to minimize the need to dust.

I have an old photo display frame made of multiple pieces of plexiglass in portrait and landscape display style.
Perhaps you could figure out how you wanted to display the cards in an attractive manner, then buyback piece of plexiglass and cut each "frame" (two pieces back to back) individually.
Then glue them together in whatever manner you choose.
Hope this makes sense.
