I have looked all over the internet and cannot find anything that I am looking for. I have about 25 balls that have been autographed that I would like to display in my billard room. This is a pic of one that holds a baseball, but I can't find anything, like this, that holds a billiard ball. I have found the ones that are shaped like a rack and other square billiard ball displays, but nothing like this. I might be forced to use something like this, but would rather not.

Any help would be appreciated.

This really looks classe..I think it's not difficult to hand make it. Now I got inspirations..

There's a guy on AZ that has been marketing custom wall mounted cue racks. I can't remember his name, but I'm sure he could make you something. I'll try and do a search for him, but the only thing I can remember about him, is that he makes the custom cue racks.

This has got me thinking though. I could build a base easy enough out of oak, build a glass case also and purchase the acrylic frames for the cards. This might be the most cost effective method.

For the $$, I'd buy some picture cubes at Dollar Store and mount them on a cedar board. Not hard to make$$$

I made my own wall mounted case. Basically figure out how many you want in one cabinet to determine the size.. like, 5 or all 25 or room for additional. Kind of like thin book case with shelves. On each shelf I drilled some 2" holes across for the ball to sit in. Then I put a piece of glass across the entire front to keep them dust free and untouchable. I drilled mounting holes in the glass (I work with glass) but you could easily do little clips or even hinges from stereo cabinets if you wanted.

I have what you would call a "nick-nack" cabinet which is just a small wooden cabinet about 2' tall and 18" wide with hinged glass-panel doors and 4 shelves. The inside is deep enough to hold cue balls. I use 1/2" black rubber "o" rings to set the balls on and it keeps them in place on the shelf. I'll see if I can snap/post a pic of mine sometime over the weekend.

Another option is to find an oldschool wall-mounted ball rack (Brunswick or the like) and use it to display your cue balls. You can even make a glass panel for the front if you want to "enclose" them.

Mattman this is the guy I posted about. I'm sure he can make you a very nice ball display.
