Can you imagine paying $125 for the birth of a baby?

Here is a receipt from January 1958

Was it a generic or name brand baby? I see it's from Sears, Roebuck and company. :)

Doc, the cheapest I remember seeing gas was a couple of gas wars back in about 1963 or so when I was 16 and had my first car.....a 1957 Ford.

I remember that and also jousting like knights did. Two if us would use the handle of rakes for lances and garbage can lids for shields to joust. We had to ride the bikes with no hands. Got scraped up a few times on the cement streets.

I lived in St Louis. Kenny Boyer was a National League Cardinal player and also a neighbor. At the age of 12 or 13 I had a pile of baseball cards and one of them was a Mickie Mantle rookie card. What did I want with that nobody American League Yankee card? So I slapped his cheeks for weeks with the spokes on my BJ Higgins 20" bike.

On the arrogant innocence of youth:bolt:

Yeah, I had a lot of this cards too, including Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Too bad we didn't have the insight to keep them.
