I fully remember the 1970s, stagflation, we are there

That's odd, I remember interest rates at around 15% as I was attempting to buy my first house and although I'm not in the market currently, I don't believe we are there at the moment. I also recall inflation so bad the Republicans came up with the idea of price controls ( not to mention the nifty W.I.N. buttons) and I don't believe we are there either.

Perhaps our different recollections can be explained by age and the type of consumer we were back in the 1970s.

Can anyone shed any light on the baseball card, comic book and bubblegum markets currently and how they compare to the 70s?
