Answering the “Not So Obvious” - What does Pre-War refer to?

Many people have asked me “What does Pre-War refer to?”. In the world of card collecting, pre-war or pre-war vintage can be considered a period or a type of collecting. The years for pre-war are from the 1850’s up through the end of World War II. You can almost divide card collecting into three sub-groups. In addition to Pre-War Vintage Cards, there is Post-War Vintage (sometimes referred to as just Vintage), and Modern. Post-War vintage is generally considered to consist of the cards produced in 1948 through the 1980 season.  Everything after that is called “Modern”. Hope that helps!
