Lately on eBay I’ve been seeing a lot of aged reprint cards and I have to say as someone who makes his own cards, I am pretty impressed. I actually bought a 1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig one of these and it’s pretty cool. From what I have been able to tell is that the dimensions are slightly off, but otherwise it really does feel like an old card. Here are some pictures of the cards I have seen.
Most of these are selling for between $5 and $10, but some are actually selling for almost $50, like the Mantle pictured above. As you can see not are marked with the “Reprint” moniker on the back and given that most of the cards that are sold as aged reprints are cards worth in excess of $1000, these are kind of a cool add to any collection.
What do you think of “aged” reprinted cards? Are you buying or have no interest?
