Yours for Only $1.00

November 27, 1968, Neenah-Menasha Daily Northwestern
Growing up, we weren't Bank of Menasha customers, so I didn't have the pleasure of getting this dandy album for a dollar with a Christmas Club account.  But I do seem to recall similar albums being offered at Firestone and remember one in my parents' record collection amongst various polka albums, Frankie Laine, and Mitch Miller.  And a quick check of eBay reveals that it can be had today for the low price of $2.50 with $4.00 shipping!  I'm sure some of us still have record players if you are so inclined....

  1. Great memory. Our source of the $1 Christmas album was Firestone Tires. We now have a digital version of the late 1960s Ray Coniff Singers' version of "Frosty the Snowman" that was, and still is, played for my son each Christmas morning. He is now 43.
