Never be ashamed to buy or frame a lobby card.

Framed cards are nice. because they fit well in bathrooms and other tight spaces.  Frames can be quite inexpensive.

The other idea is creating a coffee table book.  I have posted this before, but the book makes a very nice presentation.

I think there might already be a Lobby Card thread.  Something like Show Yours.

I think they are mostly individual collection threads.  Here's mine, just for musicals:

This reminds me I don't think I ever got a clear response from the community, maybe it doesn't make a difference.  A while back I asked a question how to store folded posters.  Is it better to store them like T's lobby cards (flat on top of the other) or like index cards or sliced bread (stacked upright against each other)

Currently I store my old folded posters flat on top but seems that puts a hellalot of weight on the paper at the bottom of the bin - and feel I am doing more damage to the foldlines than necessary.

I am storing mine flat in this sort of bin.  However, I placed some foamboard (2 layers) under them so that the ridges at the bottom of the stack wouldn't press against the bottom ones.

FWIW, I store lobbies vertically for easier access.  Again, I have stiffening boards in the back and some inside to keep the cards from bending over under the weight.

thanks...i should consider the foamboard. Right now they're just piled on top of each other.  The ones on the bottom are extra flat from all that weight. 

I figure if one or two ever need to be linenbacked, it might make it more difficult, given the fold lines are so pronounced now.
