So how old does a baseball card need to be to be considered vintage?
When I was a kid, if a card was 20 years old, it was old. There's no doubt about it, to me, it was a vintage baseball card.
But can anyone consider a card made in the 1990s vintage?
Would you consider a card made in the 1970s or 80s vintage?
As far as I'm concerned, anything after 1980 is junk, especially that stuff they made in the 90s.
I know, there's lots of newer cards out there that are worth a whole lot more than this torn up Topps 1970 Johnny Bench. And I know you can't compare today's baseball cards to the junk they made in the 1990s.
But for me, this old Johnny Bench card is one of the last true vintage baseball cards.
CORRECTION: This entry originally stated this was a 1970 Topps, It indeed is from 1971. Thanks to those who pointed out the error.
