About VCT Active Member Profiles Links


Who Are We?

Vintage Card Traders (VCT) was founded on July 23, 1999 with a vision of uniting a group of people who were banded together by their love of collecting old baseball cards. The group was formed to promote trading of cards between members in a "safe and trusted" environment. Members are encouraged to trade want-lists and swap cards through the mail, much as we did in person when we were kids. VCT has come a long way since its inception and has grown into a fantastic group of collectors who are kind, generous, and easy to trade with. VCT has since expanded to include collectors of vintage football, basketball, and hockey cards as well!

What's It Take To Join?

So, you want to join this rag-tag group of traders, do you? Good for you! Before you get yourself "in with the wrong crowd," you should ask yourself if you fulfill the first requirement for membership. Potential VCT members' primary collecting focus should be on pre-1980 or "vintage" sports-cards. There is no reason why you can't collect other cards as well, but if you mainly collect non-sport, NASCAR, Pokemon, etc., or you drool at the thought of the next ultra-glossy, high-dollar insert you might pull from your Super Topps Mega Chrome pack that you just picked up at the local card shop, then VCT probably isn't for you. If, however, you love collecting older baseball, football, basketball, or hockey cards, then you're in the right place! Most VCT members collect low- to mid-grade stuff. If you are very "condition sensitive" and only collect high grade and/or slabbed material, this is probably not the right group for you. The second requirement for membership is that you must complete a successful trade with at least FIVE current members, and receive their "thumbs up" after each deal (expressed in an e-mail to the VCT membership coordinator). The third requirement for membership is that all prospective members must have an online webpage that can be accessed by the group. No exceptions! If you need suggestions on where/how to set one up, let us know.

Any prospective member who meets all of these requirements will be asked to send in their "member profile" (see examples below). Once this is received by the VCT membership coordinator, they will become a "prospect" for a short period of time, while feedback is sought from current members about the prospect. If there is no negative input on the prospect, they will be converted to a "probationary member." The probationary period ends after six months of membership in good standing, after which full membership rights are granted.

So, if you would like to join this great group of online traders, get in contact with some of our members and set up some swaps. Once the trading is over, ask the members you have traded with to send an e-mail to the VCT membership coordinator which recommends you for membership. That's all there is to it! Even if you don't want to become a member right now, feel free to contact any of our members to set up a trade. We hope to be trading with you soon!

VCT Policy on Minors - VCT is intended as a group for adults (18 years and older), so at this time we have chosen not to offer membership to those under 18 years of age.

E-mail the VCT membership coordinator for more info on joining VCT!

DISCLAIMER: Although VCT welcomes vintage sportscard traders of all shapes, sizes, and varieties, we reserve the right to deny membership to anyone for any reason we feel is appropriate. Such denials may be due to (but not limited to) a bad rep or "thumbs down" from a member, incompatible collecting interests, or other similar reason. VCT claims no responsibility for trades conducted by its members. Each member is responsible for their own trades, actions, statements, etc., so please resolve any problems you have with the individual(s) in question.

Phil's collecting goal is to finish his run of Topps sets from 1951-1968. He also collects 1948-55 Bowman, early Fleer, Red Man, and other sets. He is a big fan of pre-WWII cards, including Goudeys, Play Ball, T205, and T206. In the post-1970 era, Phil's main interest is "oddball" sets: food issues, inserts, game cards, and the like. If it's an oddball set and not on the list, ask. You never know what may interest him. Phil also has a few football and basketball sets from the late 1960s and early 1970s that he's trying to finish and has just started collecting miniature ballparks, both MLB and affiliated minors.

Adam is a set builder who sticks primarily with Topps. He collects both older and newer cards, currently from 1970 on up, but hopes to work his way into the 1960s at some point. Most of the newer sets are finished, and most of his want lists are 1970s football and 1971 and 1970 baseball. He has some limited hockey interests as well, although baseball and football are his main focus. He had doubles to trade from almost every year from 1970 on up, and even some older cards he might part with for the right stuff. If you're looking for really nice cards in return, you might not find them here (except for newer stuff).

He also will trade for any Ripken card he does not have. He has lots of mid- and high-grade Topps baseball cards to trade from most years as well as some Topps football and hockey (also mid- and high-grade), and some other cards and stuff, like Kellogg's, RC cola cans, and early 1970s giveaways (schedules, stickers, etc.) from MLB teams.

Donny is interested in vintage cards going back to the late 1800s stuff. He is working on his lifelong ambition: the T206 set including examples of all the rare back variations. Donny is also working on the 1933 Goudey set as well as various 1950s and 1960s sets with current focus on 1954, 1955, 1959, 1960, 1962, and 1965 Topps. Donny is working to build up his collection of cards featuring Richie Ashburn, Ernie Banks, Lou Brock, Mickey Mantle, Nolan Ryan, Roger Maris, and Roberto Clemente. He's also looking for cards of Mickey Vernon and Hal Lanier for his father.
Condition SensitivityDonny has EX+ or EM+ condition requirements on his 1959, 1962, and 1965 sets. However, he's beginning to appreciate the beauty of lower condition cards and has officially labeled his 1955 set as his first "beater set." Other sets will likely start out with a G or VG condition requirement.

Barry is in the process of working on three different collections. The first is to get a card of every Baseball Hall-of-Famer from their playing years. The second is to complete a type set of every set from 1880-1980. He would like HOFers if possible to get two birds with one stone, but will take a semi-star if available. He is continuing the type set through today's cards, but is more interested in the pre-1970s holes in the collection. The third is to complete a few random sets to make his want-list easier to hit. They are listed on the want-list on his website. Trade Bait (also listed on site and updated when he gets the chance) includes vintage and UV cards as well as packs, football, basketball, hockey, and some non-sports as well.
Condition SensitivityOverall collection is an average of VG. Barry would like to maintain the VG condition for most cards. He will accept some lower condition cards based on need.
