How to store a stack in a custom property

For example: say you have a whole bunch of cards and there is an image  
that will be displayed on each card; can you set the customproperty of  
each card to an image? I'm assuming that each object in a stack may  
have only one customproperty and that assumption may be wrong, so????

TIA, Joe Wilkins
