A reader named Jim recently asked the following question after perusing my interview with credit card collector, Chuck Jennings: "I have a lot of old credit cards that I never threw away, some from companies that no longer exist, like TWA. Are they actually worth something to a collector?"
The short answer is yes. For a broader explanation, The American Credit Card Collectors Association, a group Chuck mentions in our interview, has a outstanding valuation guide that provides a detailed explanation of the value of vintage credit cards. The whole site is a treasure trove of information that will go along way to answering Jim's question.
