I received 10 proof sets form the mid 80s for Christmas. I am wonder what you all do to store and or display proof sets. The are still in the box they were gifted in. The box is sturdy enough but certainly not designed to store proof sets. Is there a product specifically designed to handle proof set storage?

In general, it is always recommended to store Proof coins in the packaging in which they came out of the mint. Proof is very sensitive and one awkward movement can turn a coin from PF70 to PF67 or even lower.
But you can also use capsules for long-term storage of your coins.

They are all in original packaging and I intend to keep them that way. I guess my question is better stated, how can I better store them to where I can also appreciate and make the more accessable than the "shoe box" they were gifted in?

You could use a binder. Here is one example that is set up for displaying proof sets. Hope you enjoy them!

Keep in mind that generally Proof sets from the mint are not air tight and some of the coins may tone no matter how to store them . Best to keep them in original mint plastic and I would keep them in outside packaging so they don't get scratched or marred .
Always good to store any coins in the best environments away from humidity , extreme heat and cold temps . If you must display your proof sets then Bumps link sounds about right .

Thanks everyone for your input. I think for the time being I'll just leave them in the box they were gifted in. That seems like the best option right now. Although the album does look pretty cool.

I box them all up and stack them in the safe. Too many to display...

I store mine in Sterilite (plastic boxes in a wide variety of sizes- this brand is U.S. made.) containers. Cardboard boxes tend to attract moisture, and small critters, over time.
