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

RE: how old
I would say roughly 30 years old

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

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

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

RE: how old
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...

RE: how old
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.

I like career Chicago Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, Fire, Red Stars, and Sky players in their respective Halls of Fame, in addition to several authors and track athletes. Add to the list some personal favorite lifers from past and present rosters, and the other 35,000 cards in my collection are for you.

RE: how old
I like the chart that radarblip posted, I think it's very accurate.
Some people tend to think of vintage (when talking sports cards) as being more of an era that had to do with when/how the cards were produced, cut, packaged, etc.. For instance, modern or new cards today are mostly laser cut which gives the cards smoother almost flawless edges but a long time ago the laser technology wasn't available and the cards were left with rough and jagged edges. Technology has gotten a lot better through the years which makes for nicer cards. But it's kind of hard for me to say a card from 1980 is vintage.
Just something to think about.
