This week, the League was asked to show off a shelf of items that expresses our love of pop culture. While this may not technically be a shelf (it’s a piano) I think it counts.
Give a collector a flat surface, and it will fill up with items overnight. Give that surface several tiers, and you have a great layered display! (High res version here.)
When I was allotted the cave, the piano came with it since it was too heavy to move. One of these days, the kids will realize we have a piano and want to play it, but until then, it will be used as a rotating display shelf where I mix new acquisitions with old–basically, whatever I feel like looking at in a given week.
Check out a few other League members’ shelves: Brother Midnight, Goodwill Geek, Random Nerdness, That Figures, AEIOU and Sometimes Why, and more!
The Goodwill Geek says
Love it! When life gives you pianos make them into display shelves for vintage toys!
Ha! Don’t mind if I do.
Very nice !! Dig that framed Invincible Iron Man #1 up there !!
That is one of my true treasures–probably the longest held item in my collection. i wrote about it a while back:
WOW ! Great story. You dont come across deals like that often and the fact that it has alot of meaning really adds the real value !
GO HERO Flash Gordon?
Close. Go Hero Buck Rogers. Good eye. 😉
I checked out a bunch of these from the league members that posted. Def cool. Always interests me to see what makes other collectors tick!
Me too! 😉

Great “Shelf” Awesome Bond poster, vintage Batman items and Superman model kit.
What I am really drooling over is that carded Hulk Mego figure. I have a Hulk, but he is loose. The mego-holic in me bows to your carded friend.
That was a somewhat recent splurge for me. The Hulk was one of the items that didn’t sell at Hakes’ auction, so when it was later offered up for a flat price, I got a great deal.
Better late than never!
Currently on Display!

I love displaying toys, but I have such a hard time arranging them. I am never happy with the end result. However, yours always look great.
Thanks John! I don’t know, I always enjoy seeing your shelves.
