      If you got the original box and all the paperwork with the reel and it looks to not be used or used very little, I would value it around 175 dollars, but without the box, about half of that. Now depending on the actual looks and condition of the reel such as wear on the paint and wear in the reel itself, which I would actually have to see to determine, a good working highly used reel would be anywhere from 14 to 60 dollars. If the rod was an original Garcia fiberglass rod with plain metal guides and the wrapping and handle were still in good condition, I would place it anywhere from 5 to 20 dollars. In the world of collecting vintage tackle, the original packaging is often worth as much or more as the product which came in it. Also condition plays a big part in collecting. Patina does not usually add anything to the value unless there is one heck of a good story to go along with it.
