    The only two I have listed for Garcia in my book are #2621.....$74.00...and....#2102....$67.00...most of the rods listed are heddons...Garcia's must not be as collectible...they show four pages of Abu- Garcia reels...they ARE collectible...most are more valuable with the box and literature. If you want to, list the reels and I'll look em up.here are a few examples of reels...2500c....near mint...$152.00....5000D.....gold...with papers...$2,800...yes, that's $2,800.....The reels that have four screws holding the sideplate on rather than three, seem to be worth more. These are from Captain John's Fishing Tackle Price Guide. He gets his prices from auctions. A good idea for your rods value would be to look on e-bay. I have seen em on there.
