Is there any way to get the price of a commodity over the last 100 years?
(Specifically, I'm looking for the price of toilet paper; I want to chart it and try to estimate the year where a piece of toilet paper will be worth more than $1.)

Index Mundi has a lot of commodity data (present and historical) available to the public.
But I am not sure if you would find toilet paper on the list (lol) - it does not exactly fit the definition for a commodity:
"a raw material or primary agricultural product that can be bought and sold, such as copper or coffee."
