Got Old Lures? Go Fish
February 25, 2012
I'm not too sure how I would feel if this was said to me at my first antique lure auction, at least concerning the importance of one lure that I may have thought was a jewel but turned out to be fool's gold. It seems this would be much like going to an MMA fight and getting knocked out in the first ten seconds, just not a pretty sight—the MMA ending or the lure auction ending.
There are many great ways to find out about fishing lures, how to grade their condition, rarity, and their dollar worth. Sure, you could go on the web or find books about this subject, but if you’re like me, a visual and hands-on approach is best. So here’s where the Parkville Branch comes to help out. No need to thank us, we’re just nifty like that.
This Thursday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m., we’ll be hosting Vintage Fishing Lures: Basics of Collecting and Assessing Values, where you can learn all about grading the condition, rarity, and dollar values of lures from 1910 through the 1950s.
