  • Do People Buy Cards?

    I'm not hip with the trading but I was wondering if people actually buy safety cards. I got about 20 Delta 737-200 ones brand new that I pulled from the package

    Im looking to get into the hobby. From what I have seen people buy them. How much are you looking to sell them for?

      I dont know many people who would pay for those, even if they are brand new.

      if you wanted to push it I'd say about $0.50-1.00 each


      depending on what you decide, I may take a couple


      Bok269, buying them is a last resort really, I've got over 150 and I've bought 10. 8 of which I used for trading for better cards.

                Naa I work at the ramp at the airport and we get packages of them in case planes need new ones in seats. Since the 737-200 isn't flying anymore for Delta, there were a bunch laying around so I took a few.

                    I really think it depends on the year they were printed, what aircraft type, and airline too. Since Delta's 732s are gone, then there should be some who are willing for them. Just try ebay if you want to sell them. Once I got a US Airways A320 safety card from someone and there was one thing wrong with it. It had a A319 pictured and not the A320 since it has 4 overwing exits. I actually sold it to a friend who collects them and he was enthusiastic when he got it. There are people willing to get them and if they are in good condition then they may be worth more.

                        if you sell them then you can get money. especially if they are old(1980-2000) every year you have them they become more valuble

                          I do not collect safety-cards as of yet, however I have been considering it.

                          Rescently I got the chance to go in (not fly) a Sriwijaya Air B737-200 in Bali, chat to the crew, take some pics, visit to the flight deck..etc One other spotter who was also there asked if he could have a safety-card they looked a bit shocked but said yes. I did get a picture of it, although I myself wasn't that interested.
                          Now, would something like that be considered 'rare'?

                          Cheers

                              This can be called a rare bird, you might be one of a few outside visitors who have flown this particular 737.
                              Otherwise, a rare card can also associate with
                              an aircraft type long gone from a given fleet : ie 707s & DC.8s and increasingly 727s
                              an airline flying in some "difficult" country, almost no one wants travelling to for a variety of reasons.
                              Thanks for visiting
