Like many other industries, the the display case market has been impacted by widespread supply chain issues in 2021 - resulting in rising prices and lack of product availability. Rising costs of materials, long delays in shipments from overseas and an increase in shipping costs are just a few of the reasons you might have noticed that display case prices have gone up, and stayed up. The situation is fluid and there is no telling what is going to happen to prices in 2022. We don't think they will be going down anytime soon though. 

As the leading online retailer for sports memorabilia display cases, we carry every major manufacturer's case and have seen every baseball bat case on the market today. We have extensive shopping data on all the products we offer on our site as well as a proactive approach to learn what baseball bat cases customers are shopping for that can’t be found on Memorabilia Displays.

This top 10 list not only factors in bat cases we sell in our Baseball Bat Display Case Collection but also gives an unbiased view on top bat cases in the market that can’t be purchased on our site. We think it’s only fair to give you the best list possible so you can make an educated decision for your display case purchase. 

There are many factors we considered when compiling this list and understand that everyone will have different preferences, needs and budgets while they look for their next case. A good rule of thumb is the more valuable the bat you want to show off, the more you should pay for the case it is displayed in. Below you will see our top 10 rankings and average score, with how rankings are determined. We also added two pros and two cons for each case.

We looked at the following three factors and gave a rank from 1-10 (1 = poor, 10 = best in class) for each case:

  1. Quality – How well made this case is. What is the quality of construction? Will it last long?
  2. Value – Does this case offer the most bang for your buck? For its price, are you getting your money’s worth.
  3. Popularity – Based on page view and purchases made on Memorabilia Displays.com as well as third party website analytics (from other sites).

  5. Overall Score: 5.6

    There is a reason this bat is one of the most popular baseball bat display cases on the market -- it's simple and versatile. It is talked about in many collectible communities such as Funko Pop collectors because they can line up several Pops and display them in one case. This case is available at retailers such as Michael's craft stores, which offer coupons on a regular basis making this baseball bat case as low as $29 or buy one/get one. Shipping is extra, but with a large chain at many locations, you can save by purchasing in-store. There is also a saying, "you get what you pay for." This is not the highest quality bat case. We’d recommend this bat case if you have a very low-value baseball bat you want to enclose and mount on the wall without breaking the bank, or you are just getting your collection started. 

    Pros

    1. Price – Wait for a Michael’s coupon, then this will be the cheapest bat case you can find today. 
    2. Design – Simple and minimalist design that would compliment many collections or displays. 

    Cons

    1. Low quality – This is amongst the lowest quality baseball bat display cases in terms of construction and materials. 
    2. Shipping cost –  Shipping cost is extra if purchasing on Michael's. Remember that all items on Memorabilia Displays.com have free shipping.

If you have questions about the timeline for custom orders, please email the Customer Service team at Memorabilia Displays.com and we are happy to provide up to date information. 

        Pros

        1. Quality – Highest quality made bat case on the market with solid hardwood and custom suede matting. 
        2. Customization –  Ability to choose wood and matting colors to complement your item or team. 

         

        Cons

        1. Production Time – Can take up to one week to be built, since these are custom made on demand. 
        2. Very heavy – Needs to be securely fastened to your wall. 


          8. Baseball Bat Display Case with Wall Mount

           

          Baseball Bat Display Case with Wall Mount
          1. Manufacturer: STG Supplies
          2. Quality: 7/10
          3. Value: 6/10
          4. Popularity: 6/10
          5. Overall Score: 6.3

            A new addition to our 2022 list, this case has been around for years with its classic gold risers, acrylic layers and acrylic lid, but it has become more popular because this case has the built-in wall mount that is makes installation a breeze. We like the classic gold riser look and ease to get in and out of the case with a lid that just lifts on top of the case.

            Pros

            1. Lightweight – Acrylic is lighter than glass, a benefit when hanging a bat. 
            2. Simple Design – Classic gold risers that blend in with other riser cases. 

             

            Cons

            1. Dated Design – Some feel this look is a bit dated. 
            2. No UV Protection – No guarantee of UV protection with this particular case. 


              7. Baseball Bat Tube By Ultra Pro

               

              Ultra Pro Baseball Bat Tube
              1. Manufacturer: Ultra Pro

              3. Value: 8/10
              4. Popularity: 6/10
              5. Overall Score: 6.6



                Among all the bat tubes in the market today, Ultra Pro has the slight edge with its higher quality PVC material and thick rubber ends. Bat tubes are great for that bat you are transporting or storing away in a closest as it gives you the best protection out there (excluding UV protection). These are easy to use as the rubber caps slide off to put the bat in the tube. There are acrylic holders if you want to put a bat tube on the wall as a cost-effective way to display your bat. Bat tubes also serve other purposes like storing Magic play mats, architecture design plans, posters and more.

                Pros

                1. Multipurpose – Best for transporting or storing bats. 
                2. Cost – Affordable protector. 

                 

                Cons

                1. No UV protection. 
                2. Aesthetics – Not the most attractive way to display your bat. 


                  6. Baseball Bat Tube Wall Mount Holder

                   

                  Baseball Bat Tube Wall Mount Holder
                  1. Manufacturer: STG Supplies
                  2. Quality: 8/10
                  3. Value: 9/10
                  4. Popularity: 4/10
                  5. Overall Score: 7.0



                    Much like its counter-part and our #3 seller, the wall mount acrylic holders, this bat tube wall mount holder is the most cost effective way to show off your baseball bat with a separate bat tube. Most bat tubes are going to be the same size and shape to hold a bat, so these are a universal fit. While putting a bat tube on the wall isn’t our preferred way to show off a bat, using the bat tube will protect your investment from dirt and dust -- or deter someone from touching or handling the bat. With the purchase of a bat tube and these holders, this is still one of the cheapest ways to show off you bat while providing some protection.

                    Pros

                    1. Cost – One of the cheapest bat display options on the market. 
                    2. Minimal Design – Gives your bat tube a “floating effect” with clear acrylic.

                     

                    Cons

                    1. Protection – Even in a bat tube, your bat isn’t protected from UV rays. 
                    2. Bat Tube Design – We think there are more attractive ways to show off your baseball bat, but this is one of the cheapest.


                      5. Five Baseball Bat and Ball Cabinet Display Case

                       

                      Five Baseball Bat And Ball Wood Cabinet Display Case
                      1. Manufacturer: SF Displays
                      2. Quality: 7/10
                      3. Value: 9/10
                      4. Popularity: 7/10
                      5. Overall Score: 7.6

                         

                        Another new addition to our list this year, the five baseball bat and ball wood cabinet display case has become one of our top sellers since there aren't many other options to display up to 5 baseball bats. The price on this very reasonable, which is why we like the value you get with UV protected acrylic door, locking hinges with keys, swinging hinged door for easy access and felt padding on the background. This display case is especially appealing for those who want to display a large collection of bats to fit a certain theme or showcase a team or specific player. 

                        Pros

                        1. Value – Great value to show off 5 baseball bats all in one case.
                        2. Protection – Keyed entry and UV protection give you added protection and security for prized bats.

                         

                        Cons

                        1. Some Assembly Required – You will have to install the mounting hardware, which just requires screwing in the hardware, which can be cumbersome to some.
                        2. Design – Ornate wood trim has a bit older look than a flat modern look.



                          4. Baseball Bat and Ball Wall Mount

                           

                          Baseball Bat and Ball Wall Mount

                          5. Overall Score: 8.0



                            One of Amazon.com’s & Memorabilia Displays best sellers, this is case has the lowest price point among bat cases that are fully “enclosed” with either a lid or case. Special UV protection, locking lid and great price point are why customers choose this one. The quality of construction isn’t up to where the glass cases or custom made cases are, but this is a great option for protection and value. This will either hold a standard bat and baseball or if you have a longer bat up to 39”, this will hold that instead of the added baseball. Comes in four wood trim options.

                            Pros

                            1. Lock – One of the few manufactures who put a lock on their cases to lock up your memorabilia. 
                            2. Wall Mount – Can be mounted vertically or horizontally (with additional horizontal hanging kit, about $6). No other wall mounted display cases have this option.

                            Cons

                            1. Quality – If you want higher grade construction, you will want to look another manufacturer. This case still delivers strong value for you though. 
                            2. Design – Today, cases with a more modern design with straight edges are more popular. This design is a bit out-dated with its beveled edges.


                              3. Baseball Bat Wall Mount Horizontal Holder

                                This is Memorabilia Displays #3 seller for baseball bat display cases. It’s easy to see why, with the lowest price point to show off your baseball bat. While you lose any protection for your bat, this is the best option for your baseball bats that are valued under $100-$150. It has a very minimal design, with a floating effect that complements a galley wall or layered display area, so you can spend more time looking at your bat than you do the case. Each acrylic holder has two thick and sturdy acrylic pieces glued together. Comes with screws and anchors to drill into drywall.

                                Pros

                                1. Price - Cheapest bat display.
                                2. Aesthetics Acrylic holders make it look like your bat is floating to fully enjoy your collectible bat.

                                 

                                Cons

                                1. Lack Protection No protection for your bat.
                                2. Installation Can be difficult mounting to wall with screw anchors if you haven’t done it before, especially making sure the bat is level.

                                    A new addition to our 2022 list, this baseball bat glass display case gives your bat a true museum quality display. Mirrored bottom and background with a glass top really make your prized baseball bat stand out. This has risen in popularity this year because of its price point, which is very reasonable for a hand-crafted glass case. This case comes with acrylic holders to rest your bat on inside the case.

                                    Pros

                                    1. Customizable Comes in three trims to match the décor of your room. 
                                    2. Quality Construction - Solid wood, great glass and mounting the glass to wood frame craftsmanship. 

                                     

                                    Cons

                                    1. Made On Demand - These cases can take 3-7 business days to ship out, but we feel they are worth the wait. Not a fit for you if you need the case urgently. 
                                    2. Glue on Corners - The glass top is actually 5 pieces of glass all glued together, so you may see small imperfections where glued together, but our customers have always been satisfied with the design.

                                        Our #1 selling and top choice for 2022 is the wall mounted glass case by Perfect Cases. The wall mount has only 3 trims to choose from (black being the most popular on Memorabilia Displays.com) and is available in their traditional UV protection or 99% UV museum conservation glass (for a surcharge). Comes with acrylic holders to position your bat and the standard mirror back is a great touch to really show off your memorabilia. The top of the glass case is like a lid that opens up to place your bat in the case. Though glass makes this case heavy, it’s well built and will be secure on your wall. We highly recommend using dry wall anchors or drilling into a stud to secure this case.

                                        Pros

                                        1. Customizable Comes in three trims to match the décor of your room
                                        2. Quality Construction - Solid wood, glass and mounting the glass to wood frame. 

                                         

                                        Cons

                                        1. Heavy – Can be hard to install into drywall with one person and needs proper support on wall with anchors or drilling into studs. 
                                        2. Glass is more breakable than acrylic – High probability it will break if it falls off the wall.
