    My impression of how “old-school” deltiologists define vintage is a 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card. Most of the shows I’ve been to, anything 4″x6″ (continental size) or larger is in the clearance box, 25¢ or cheaper. If you ask anyone on postcrossing (aka “new school” deltiologists), vintage is anything which can not be currently purchased brand new. For the rest of us, vintage is somewhere in between – for me scalloped edge Continentals are vintage, but anything printed after that is not.

      Thank you, Heidi. That’s a very helpful and useful definition I’ll use with attribution!
