Just wanted share some pics of an old Zebco I have and keep hanging onto. Story is a friends uncle got for retirement in 1958, I acquired in 1992 when I helped him with an estate settlement. Still in the original package as he received it in 1958.

Wow, $45.90 in 1958! Just did a quick online calculator of 1958 to 2017 dollars: $45.90 in 1958 would be $338.36 in 2017. Premium stuff right there.

The Original Zebco 33 was, by far, the best reel ever made.
