Default Finding value of vintage deep sea fishing rods and reels...

My dad asked if I could try and find someone in the Dallas Texas area that we can take some I guess 30-40 year old deep sea fishing rods and reels to for getting information and values on to possibly sell. These are either brand new or very well cleaned up and put away items! If no one in the area then at least maybe someone that we can send pics and ID numbers to for appraisal?
Thanks!


Sure miss those days of being able to hunt a lease for a nominal cost that didnít create greed and a feeling of despair if you didnít kill something!

Although I can't help with values, I would really enjoy seeing some pictures of these vintage rods and reels.

I've got some 80s stuff too. But what's worse is I have my grandfather's 2-sided deep sea rod with reel (1940s). And my great grandfather's fly rod with two ends (1910-1920) and cloth roll-up travel bag that I've used.


I've also still got my first fly reel (automatic) I got for my tenth B-day. And an earlier Zebco 88 black and white rod with built on reel.
