Default What Do You Define As Vintage?

1980s?
1970s?
1960s?
1950s?

Will a certain decade become vintage at some point in time?

Will the 1990s one day be vintage in your eyes?

Thoughts?

Anything before 2012!

Honestly I think it depends on who you ask. I'm not sure that there is a definitive "right" answer. For me, it's older than 1980. I know a lot of people use 1973(I think that's the one) because it was the last year that Topps didn't have factory sets and they stopped using different series of cards in a season. Some hardcore old school collectors think that only Pre-war stuff is truly vintage. So what is your opinion?

Older than the person doing the equating. I was born in 1978, so anthing older than that is vintage compared to me.

I would consider anything before when I was born in 1975 vintage.

right now, i'd agree with mrveggieman, since i was also born in 1975, but one day the 1990's junk will be vintage... say in 50 years or so!

-1980 and earlier.

Vintage is as much about the industry as it is a set number of years. 1981 brought competitors to the market, and the over-production flood began. For that reason, mainly, i consider 1980 the breaking point on a vintage definition.

I go along the same line as well as it is not vintage anymore once the other two card companies came in 1981

A while back I read anything 30 years plus is technically vintage... so technically it's be 1983, although I am probably wrong.

Yeah, I'd agree with this too.

Something else to mention is that commons 1976 and later seem to drastically go down in value. Maybe that is because the designs for 76/77/78 were not very good. IMHO. The early 80's brought back some of the cool vintage design style. Just a thought.

Honestly I consider vintage anything pre-1990 that was printed on brown cardboard. ;-)

1967 and previous for me, many people say 73 and earlier, some say 79 and earlier. If you even say 1980 or newer... Well just stop typing...

I hate the word vintage! The years go by way too fast. I would say 1975 and lower, when I wasn't vintage.
