A question came up that I wasn't able to answer. What is considered a vintage sports card? I could use some insight and your opinions on what's considered vintage. I have some cards from the early 80's that I would consider vintage, but someone else might not consider them that old.

"Vintage" in my opinion means cards from the 70s and earlier. And more specifically, 1975 and earlier.

The early 80s aren't as mass produced as the late 80s and the "junk wax" era, but it's still pretty easy to find early 80s cards in really nice condition. Also, by the early 80s, people were starting to take better care of their cards (which leads to more NM condition cards). No bicycle spokes or thumb-tacks through their cards.
