How old does a card have to be to be vintage?


RE: how old - cc sports cards - 06-23-2012 02:39 PM

I would say roughly 30 years old

For football, I would say sometime around the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. So maybe 40 years old is reasonable for vintage.

I would venture to guess anything pre 1980 would qualify. Why are you asking? J

At least according to Beckett grading services, everything pre-1981 is considered vintage.

Hope that helps.

A few of us came up with a Baseball time line chart:

Antique:: Pre WWII

Vintage:: WWII to 1955

Classic:: 1956 to 1975

Modern:: 1975 to 2k

New:: 2001 to date

Lol, hard to think that most of the cards we collect/have today Modern - New.

Hope this can help...

Vintage is widely considered to be 1979 and before.

That's what I've always gone by, and you have a darn nice Payton, by the way.
