Comparing the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. catalogue to the 1908 Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalogue

It’s no secret at this point that Red Dead Redemption 2 has one of the most believable open worlds in gaming. Yet even though it has been more than 2 years since RDR2 released, players are still finding new ways to show just how realistic the world Rockstar Games crafted is.

Community member RaigeGames recently purchased a 1908 Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalogue from an antique store and right away the similarities to the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. catalogue from Red Dead Redemption 2 were apparent.

One of the greatest differences however was one that many would expect, the prices. The double-action revolver for example, whilst only $12.00 in the Sears catalogue, it sets you back $65.00 in Red Dead’s Wheeler, Rawson & Co.

The similarities go beyond weapons & clothing too. Both catalogues feature pages about projectors, an offer to send the book to any address and more. The back of both catalogues also feature pictures of their warehouses, which is a nice touch considering only the physical Wheeler, Rawson & Co. catalogue would be seen, not the version available in game.

RaigeGames was kind enough to give us permission to share these images and has shared so many other comparisons over on her Twitter, you should definitely go and check them all out!
