1955 Bowman football card wrapperAs the About page says, the Vintage Football Card Gallery is a reference site. The cards in the gallery are not for sale, but I do have lots of cards for sale on my Nearmint’s Vintage Football Cards site.

You can search the gallery for your favorite set, team, player, or college. To do complex searches, such as “Show all the rookie cards of Hall of Fame players named Bob,” try the Advanced Search page.

On the Site Map you will find links to other miscellaneous pages. Among them:

Fran Tarkenton 1969 Topps football card puzzle piece

I add to the gallery whenever I have time, so check back occasionally for new cards. Enjoy your visit!

    The ABCs of football cards is awesome. Just noticed you omitted Nick Buoniconti as one of the 1963 Fleer HOF rookie cards in the set. I just finished off the trio with a nice ebay pick-up of the Dawson.

    Love the site, Tony

    Trying to find a card for Stan Mills. 1923-24 Green Bay.

    I’d like to present it to his son (same name) on an upcoming birthday.

    Any suggestions???

    Thanks in advance and GREAT SITE.

    I too just found your site and love it.

    Do you write about the topic of whether its worthwhile to get one’s cards graded? I’ve got several thousand cards from the 60s and early 70s and would like to start selling some. Any input would be appreciated.

    Hi Michael,

    To decide whether to have a card graded, I try to determine if grading it would increase its value. First I guess the grade that a grading company would give it, and then I look at past sales on eBay to see what that card has sold for. If the card in that condition sells for significantly more graded than ungraded, I’ll add the card to my pile to be graded. The key, of course, is guessing what grade a grading company will give the card. That takes some practice.

    I’m glad you like the site. Tell your friends!
