Early Rollerblades (Nov, 1953)

Two-Wheel Skates Cut Noise
Centered wheels give these new roller skates the feel and maneuverability of ice skates. The artificial-rubber wheels, rounded instead of flat, are said to be less noisy, speedier, better for pivots and sudden stops. The two-wheelers are made by the Rocket Skate Co., Burbank, Calif.

    I have a pair of these skates, I got then in 1956 from my dad as a 9th birthday present. I heard they were not mass produced and were quite valuable. Can anyone tell me what they are worth, i have been trying to find out.
