Use google images to find a glass trophy case you like---post an image here and someone will help.---That sort of project is usually rather advanced and might be beyond you skills or tools----

What Mike said!
We need a lot more information before anyone can even begin to offer suggestions.
How big does it need to be? Dimensions?
How do you want it to open?
Any shelves?
Since you put this in the carpentry forum I assume you want to build it out of wood?
What tools and skills do you have?
And last but not least, what the heck is "a book Sheldon the top"???

A pic of what you want would be a good start.

FWIW, I built a small table top display case for S&P shakers. I started with a cheap framed print from a hobby shop, pulled the print out, and used the framed glass as the front.
