hey guys, These are some pics of some reels dad left when he passed a few yrs ago. I don't know if there are any of value or not. I just plan on keeping a few and selling the rest after I figure out how to price them. Just trying to get some info about them. email me if you'd like at caseyslp@gmail.com

Nice collection of old reels. Easiest way to get prices for what you can actually sell them for is to get on eBay and type in the manufacturer and model of each reel in the search box. That will give you a real good indicator of what they are worth. Just a quick look at your pics showed alot of wear on them, that may hurt your prices with a collector if they are interested in them. Still a cool collection and even if they are not worth a bunch they are great to display and hang on to. Good luck!!

That is a nice collection you have there.

The trouble with getting values on old fishing tackle, reels, rods and lures is the condition. They look in pretty nice condition but the trend these days for collectors it seems is instead of buying a bunch of old items at a good price they want that one that is in perfect shape and still in the original box. Collectors are willing to wait and pay more for those that pop up from time to time than buying in bulk.

However, there is always a price for everything you will just have to check around.
