How old does a card need to be to be considered "vintage"?

I was born in 1977 so my rule of thumb with both cars and vintage cards is that if its not older than me than it isn't vintage

I consider pre-1974, when cards were issued in more than one series.

I say vintage is pre 1970.

But I guess it will move eventually. I guess in the year 2051, 2001 cards will be considered vintage.

I consider "vintage" to be pre-digital imaging and set up. Pre 1985 maybe? When the backs of the cards were just black ink on whatever the base-color of the cardstock was.

From my dealings in the musical instrument world, 30 years is usually the cut off for "vintage", but also, it does include some connotation to the way the instrument was made, and the materials used.
