I highly recommend the guys I use if you want a few on your walls they are relatively inexpensive option and only require a thumbtack to hold them on the wall. But I get thst I have probably about 10 long boxes of raw books I can't afford to get graded lol and they are at my grandparents place in FL

Vinyl J-channel meant for home siding. Slabs slide in/out easily and cannot fall out. I got the idea from someone on the forums a few years ago.

I have several crafticomics “frames” and like them a lot. However, I only -really- like them for raw books. The one framed slab version I have still isn’t on display…

It may just be me and my taste but I prefer simplicity for display. Ideally I would find a solution that “hides” everything except the book. No grade, no surround, etc.

If I had a dedicated comics room it might be a different story. My preference is to highlight the cover art and the “vintage” nature of the book.

I have one submitted (and none graded). I plan on displaying it on the wall. Its Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #9. So plan on displaying it with my MMPR toy collection especially next to my Lord Drakkon (comic is his first appearance) pop figure

when I do more next month and when they come in (or if get any already graded) will likely go my "worth money" cabinet

I use the "Comic Mount" product, and I wrote a review on Amazon:

When I'm ready, I plan on using these from Amazon. The price is decent, the product looks good. I like how there is a metal piece to keep pressure on the edge of the slab.

I'm personally not a fan of frames. I use these ComicMounts. Very hidden, which is the look I prefer. Can also be used as a stand. I use them for raw, graded, and old vinyl LPs.

My 2¢

I like these but don't like the no uv proctor for the older books

I like this idea but again no uv protection in the more well lit rooms but for the hall ways an amazing idea

Understood.
I use LED lighting in these rooms so not an issue. The amount of UV from LED is negligible.

Honestly, even if I didn't I wouldn't concern myself. Books are gonna last a lot longer than I am.
