I would suggest that in 2090 - the mass produced stuff from 1990 will still be sitting around in warehouses and will still not be considered "vintage" by most collectors (if we still have any collectors by then).

For me "vintage" runs from 1945 thru 1980 (I just really like the 1980 Topps set). Prior to 1945 is in a category all it's own -"PreWar"

Prewar takes a special kind of collector - typically with higher budgets than most of us (in order to complete sets anyway)

This - series issue ended in 1973. After that more hobbyists and buying sets complete vs assembling

To the last part of your post: I was always a postwar (1950s and 1960s) baseball collector but got restless and gave prewar a try or two. It just isn't for me. Now, I am collecting 1960s football and having a blast! I still think postwar baseball is cool, too.

To me the modern era started with double knit uniforms, so pre-72ish or so.

I like the division on the board, pre war, post war , and post 1980. I hate the word vintage almost as much as the word poppage

It's an interesting question, when I started collecting (and was aware of the organized hobby) was probably about 1980, and vintage was 1960. Do kids today think 1998 is vintage?

I guess it reminds me how much I've aged and how different this hobby to me than it was back then. Finding "old" cards back then was exotic, now you can get pretty much any Topps card throughout their history online.

I remember I met a kid who had 1970-71 cards, I gave up just about anything to get those exotic cards.

When my girls hear me talk about the 90s, they look at me like I am dead. It is all relative.
