There are many styles of cabinets for displaying collectibles and other items. There are some that have glass panels and glass shelves. Others are made of fine wood with wood or glass shelves. Yet others are made with plastic, faux wood, steel, or a number of other materials. If the collection is a valuable one, like fine china or antiques, the collector will probably want to have a cabinet with a lock.
Whether it is art, automobiles, coins, stamps, comic books, or Simpsons characters, somebody somewhere has a passion for those or other items that are deemed collectible. If their passion is deep, they have amassed a sizable personal collection of their prized objects. Chances are, they like to gaze upon them or even show them off. In addition, with so many different things to collect, it is only natural that man has also created containers or places to keep them. If the collection is of items that require an activity to enjoy them, such as train sets, remote controlled planes, cars, or boats, they will more than likely display them on a table or on shelves. If the collection needs to be kept free from dust and other airborne particles, they will probably keep them in display cabinets.
Some cabinets are designed specifically for certain collectibles. There are die-cast display cases that are designed to showcase miniature die-cast collectible cars. NASCAR fans who collect miniature versions of their favorite NASCAR drivers' cars can enjoy their collection in a case designed either in a stand alone version or a wall mounted version. For such a collection, glass shelves are usually desired so that all angles of the car can be seen and appreciated without having to take the car out. More handling equals more risk of damage or wear. Depending on the collectible, even natural oils from handling can depreciate the value of the collectible. Coins and stamps are especially susceptible to surface damage merely by handling.
