This infographic illustrates the cost comparison of items in 1962 versus 2012. Titled 'From the Desk of Don Draper: The Cost of 1962 Today,' this cartoon depiction shows the drastic change in prices, all from of the desk of the infamous Don Draper.

Draper is a man of class and spends money as fast as he drinks. He drives a Cadillac Coup De Ville and lives comfortably in a Westchester, New York, home. This infographic dug up the information to demonstrate just how luxurious the man was.

The color indication is broken down into three categories: 1962 prices, inflation rate in 2012 dollars and 2012 prices. $5,385 was the price for a Cadillac Coup De Ville in 1962; today, it's up to $55,030.
