Default Imagine how high Cobb prices would be if this trend had continued

Apparently when they were first distributed Cobb cards were pretty scarce.

Concord Tribune July 17 1909

and in this clip Mr. Boyd, Mr. Murphy and the paper are asking for "pictures" of Cobb while Mr. Smith
is rewarding people for throwing them away.

Great stuff, thanks for sharing.
Did an inflation calculator, which said $10 in 1909 is equivalent to $276.96 today. I actually thought it might have been higher...

$234,297.40 if that $10 was put into the S&P 500.

According to this....

Does anyone else see the analogy between the ATC and PSA business models?
