How Much Would It Cost To Be Don Draper Today? [Infographic]

We already explored how much Don Draper might have made if he were alive today. (We’re guessing it’s a lot.) And since the “Mad Men” premiere is right around the corner (yay!) let’s do a little more Drape-ish math: How much would it cost to actually be your favorite, wildly offensive, womanizing Don Draper?
Take into account the Lucky Strikes — with a 1962 price of $0.35, those are about 30 times more expensive now. The house in Westchester saw a nice appreciation in value ($15,300 when he bought it, compared to roughly $363,000 today). And the amount it costs to fill up a tank today versus 1962? That one’s too painful to even mention.
