Hello, I need help with an old camera lens I found a while back. My goal is to be able to use it with my Canon EOS Rebel T3i...if that's even possible. (I'm new to photography)

Looks like an old Tamron Adaptal lens & is NOT a good idea to buy adapters for your camera. It will not AF & most of it's features won't work but if they did it would result in lower quality images than most modern lenses provide.

That is not a Tamron Adaptal lens.
It is an expensive Canon 12-120mm Zoom lens for 16mm Cinematic Film Cameras or early TV production. It can not be adapted for Digital SLRs because the image circle is too small and the flange distance is only about 17mm. See C Mount lenses
You might get get as much as $500 for it if you can find the right buyer.

No, it isn't a Tamron Adaptal lens!
It is a 16mm film camera lens. I do not know of any adapters to make it fit a DSLR. Doesn't mean there aren't any, though.
They are or were quite common years ago. I doubt you can get $500 for it but you might get $250/ $300 to the right person. It was used on the Bolex 16mm film cameras. Cool find.
