Tossing out old newspapers today, I stumbled on to this choice (and timely) comic. In fact, I did toss the 7/14/1984 Dallas Times Herald into the trash, but not before scanning these ads.

And what about a nearly $1200 Beta Recorder? Bet that was only useful for a few years.

Now this just proves boots have always been expensive.

In another I Don’t Get It moment, we have an ad for Sofa Country, hosting wrestler Kerry Von Erich to sign autographs. WTH?

MJ-017

I’d never heard of him, but evidently he was part of the Von Erich family of professional wrestlers. Here he is with you-know-who.

And lest you think cell phones were invented in this millennium, think again.

Save $400?? Can you imagine what the starting price was?

    I love perusing old ads. You are right about boots they have always been pricey. I wonder what folks back then would say if they were told that there would be a time when you could buy a video camera for a fraction of that. And it would come with a phone.
