I have seen them, they are out there, but hard to find. One particular ribbon makes them harder to sell now
...and even harder to find nowadays!

It's worth pursuing then...I don't keep up with ribbons, but this was offered recently and seemed scarce enough. Ed
I lucked into one at a flea market 2 or 3 years back. The best item on there is the Wake Island "W" ribbon attachment.

These ribbons were folded and glued around a piece of cardboard, not the standard ribbon bar.

Here is a photo of the large version. It is divided showing Army - Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard - Merchant Marines.

I too have one of the USN & USMC ribbon ones. Took me quite some time to find a nice one. It's really nice to look at, and would actually be pretty difficult to put together all those ribbons now, the WW2 made ones I mean, outside of buying the set like this. There are ribbons on these boards one will never, ever come across in the USN style - and I am not just talking the big one on the top left either, I am talking the campaigns, the Army awards, etc.
Ed, did you get the one you posted about then?
