Before I joined A.net, I did not know so many people collected Safety Cards.
I've been collecting them for years and wonder if any of mine are rare or valuable. Any input on this or where to find info is appreciated.

It depends on where you live. For me all your safety cards are rare and I would like to have them all. Can be completely different for people living in the US. But I think that you have some old one which are very rare and valuable. What do you think about an Air Berlin 738,734 and LH 733/735 Safetycard? Do you think they're rare for you? I've dozens of them so they aren't rare for me but for people living on other continents they can be vary rare.

Yep Georg.. It depends on the region in which you are. I have many from Jet Airways 737's, Indian Airlines & Air India and they are easy to get out here in India while anything from the Western sector is a rare for me.

You have some very nice cards in your small-but-nice collection. If you are interasted in numbers, common card from the US (American 737, Northwest DC-10) will be sold for no more then 2-3 $US. Your older cards, from the 80, may be sold for 5-7 $US. Maybe a collector who want a specific safety card very much will pay more, But i don't think more then 10-12 $US.
Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the reply Jonathan!
I don't figure to make any money. They're mostly souvenirs and info. about the Aircraft.
I think what attracted me to "borrowing" safety cards was the artwork. And.... like soooo many A.netters, critique technical accuracy.

Good point. I've coveted my Boeing Hydrofoil card as it is foreign to the U.S. Thanks for the perspective guys!

I agree that eBay makes it very easy to find many safety cards, but it doesn't mean that you'll find everything there. I'm looking for a Turkish Airlines F-28 Fellowship safety card and ready to pay for it but can't find it.
