About the Vintage Football Card Gallery

Welcome to the Vintage Football Card Gallery! This is one of my two sites; the other is my sales site, Nearmint's Vintage Football Cards. This site, the Gallery, is a reference site, and the cards pictured here are not for sale. Many of them are from my personal collection, and most of the rest are cards that I have sold on my sales site.

You can search the gallery by set, team, player, college, and position. See the site map for a comprehensive list of gallery searches. Also see my blog entry called A Tour of the Vintage Football Card Gallery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where can I find football card values?

A: I have included approximate retail values for many of the cards in the Gallery. For an explanation of what those values mean, see my price guide page. For football cards I don't have priced, and for cards from other sports, see my page called Football, Baseball, and Other Sports Card Values.

Q: May I use an image from the gallery?

A: Yes, but on the page where you use the image, please add a link to the gallery page where you found the image. As you can imagine, I have spent a lot of hours with my scanner--hundreds of hours, literally--and the scanner and I would like a little credit for all our hard work. For link text use something like "Image of [player's name] card courtesy of the Vintage Football Card Gallery." (If you use images from other web sites, I suggest you extend the same courtesy to the keepers of those sites.) If you'd like, send me an email and I'll visit your site and see what cool things you're up to.

Please do not copy the images in bulk without asking me first. I'm always amazed when people do this, but they do. I noticed recently that a lot of my images have been copied, without permission, to Amazon, Beckett Marketplace, and other dealers' web sites for use as stock photos. Be careful if you shop these places: make sure the card pictured is the card that's actually for sale.

(Oh, by the way, I don't use stock photos on my sales site, even for the one- and two-dollar cards. The cards you see are the cards you get.)

If all you want to do is link to gallery pages, link away. At the bottom of this page there are bits of HTML to help you do that.

Q: I looked on your sales site, but you don't have the card I want to buy. Where should I look next?

A: One place to look is eBay. Use the box below to search for current auctions for a player. If you don't have an eBay account, you can register here.

Q: Do you buy cards?

A: Yes, but I am very selective when buying cards for resale. Most card collectors are sensitive about the condition of their cards, and they desire cards that are practically flawless. Please email me if you have cards that you think I might want. Also see my Where to Sell Sports Cards page.
