This isn't a post about someone sending me cards.  This is about some mail that got sent 20 years before I was born.  One year after winning the NL Rookie of the Year Bill Virdon started coaching on the side.  It was probably a good start since it was something he did for over 30 years after his playing days were through.  

How cool is that return address?  A full photo on the front of the envelope.

Inside is a letter on legal paper.  Man were the times different.  The camp, plus room and board are only $165 for 4 WEEKS!  My daughter's 1 week soccer camp last year was $650.

Kudos to Mr. Formuff for preserving this envelope and letter so well.  It is a cool little addition to my Virdon Collection.

Wow. Four weeks for $165? I'm sure my parents would have signed me up for back to back to back sessions if they knew about this camp.

Accounting for inflation, that $165 would be around $1,565.05 in 2019 dollars.
