The Price is Right

Virginia Kneitel sent this postcard in 1957, in an attempt to guess the price of the Valentine Showcase on the Price is Right. The Price is Right started airing in 1956. In those days it was hosted by Bill Cullen; Bob Barker didn't come along until 1972. The home viewer showcase allowed television viewers to send in their bids by postcard. The bid closest to the actual price without going over would win the entire showcase. I wonder if Virginia won.
