Geez, I'd get one in every color if they weren't so darn much. What's a college kid to do? Maybe I'll ask for one for Christmas. I'm going for the pink.

$17.50 in 1968 is roughly equivalent to $100 today. I'd say that J. Press has tied their price increases to the rise in cost of a Yale education rather than the CPI.
