$1.29 in 1955 had the same buying power as $10.90 in 2012. So still a pretty good deal.

I love it. Looking at todays generation of ball players, it looks like most of them don't know what a razor is or a haircut.Smile

I did not know that.

Orioles used to be like that up until 2 years ago, after the hiring of Buck Showalter, owner Peter Angelos relaxed that policy.

That's about what a decent condition SS goes for now. So as long as people back then didn't completely abuse the razor they had zero inflation on that purchase, not bad!
