Just a really quick post today as I’m off to Dublin for a couple of days with work…
I was giving some thought over the weekend as to what constitutes a ‘vintage’ baseball card. Is it specifically to do with the age of the card itself? or is it more down to the period that the card was produced in?
This isn’t meant to be a trick question, I was just curious 🙂
I often hear terms like Vintage and Modern bandied around when talking about baseball cards, but when does one end and the other start? Are there any other recognised ‘eras’?
As time moves on does the ‘era’ shift in time as well? For instance, I wouldn’t judge a card manufactured in 1991 as Vintage over a card produced in, say, 1979. But in 10-15 years time could a 1991 card be considered as Vintage??
I know, I know… Questions Questions!!
If anyone out there has a definitive answer on this, or can point me in the direction of a recognised source I’d be really grateful!
