How to use this Footy Card Price Guide

This is only a guide

AFLfootycards.com lists prices of Aussie Rules football cards which are to be used only as a guide. They do not represent fixed prices or an offer to buy or sell on behalf of our staff or anyone else.

What is listed

Currently we are listing the mainstream trading cards of Australian Rules football cards. This includes Kornies cards from the 1950's, Scanlens trading cards which were first released in 1963 up until their take over by Stimorol in the late 1980's. It also includes Regina, then Select who have been producing AFL trading cards since the 1990's and still currently do. Soon, we hope to also list other footy cards such as cigarette cards, mobil cards, kellogs cards and other cards which exclusively feature Australian Rules football.

What the columns mean

In each section of the price guide there is a HI and LO column. These represent the selling ranges of the listed cards and sets. The do not correspond to different conditions of the cards, nor do they represent buy and sell prices.
The HI colum represents full retail prices, which is the cards full value. Popular cards generally sell for this amount of sometimes even higher. The LO column represents the price you may be able to get the card for at a reduced level. This is influenced by a number of factors including regional variation, sales, player unpopularity and other factors.
The HI column is usually the price quoted by a dealer as the full value of a particular card or set. The newer the card, the more available it tends to be, and the more likely it may be discounted.

The prices in this guide are influenced by a number of factors including player popularity, age, scarcity, and of course the market value. The market value of the listed footy cards is determined from sale prices in card and collectable shops, markets and online auctions such as ebay.

What the arrows mean

Up arrows (green) means a card or set has increased in market value and down arrows (red) mean a card or set has decreased in market value. It does not determine if a card or set will continue to go up or down in value in the future.

RC - Rookie Card definition

A players rookie card is the first appearance on a regular issue card from one of the major companies (Kornies, Scanlens, Stimorol, Regina, Select). A RC is not a subset or insert card, but the first standard release card of that player by a mainstream company.

Card Condition

Grading of cards is subjective. Collectors differ on the strictness and importance of qualitise. The following condition guide is to minimise subjectivity.
Near Mint
Very Good

Cards from the mid 1990's onwards should be in near mint to mint condition in order to be valued as the listed price.
