Default Value these 1970 Slingerlands.......

Hey my dad has this old set of Slingerlands from the 70s. He believes them to be about 1975. He bought them in 75 brand new off someone who stole them off a train. He took the serial numbers off in case he ever got caught. Anyone have any insight on to what the value of these may be? here are some pics......
thanks!

Bummer about the badges, it hurts the value, of course.

Nice examples in a more desirable finish sell mediocre. Yours is silver sparkle with missing badges. It is nice, but it wont fetch the dollars.

Thumbs down Re: Value these 1970 Slingerlands.......

I have an Idea...why not track down the guy he stole them from...and give them back.Or how about donating them to a school.Selling them and pocketing the money is wrong so many ways its not funny.Sorry..I have no tolerance for a thief.

You guys beat me to it....My grandfather's B+B Rogers set got stolen from a barroom in Haverhill,MA around 1972.He had to finish his 50 year drumming career playing a set of Ralston MIJ's....BAAAAAD MOJO on those.

Yeah....thats how I feel.Serious bad mojo.Only a charitable act can lift the bad vibes off of those.I wouldn't take those if you paid me.At least the OP was honest about it.Maybe he thought it was a selling point ....maybe not.

Stealing someones instrument can ruin or possibly seriously damage a career

More bad karma, had my first new set, '67 5 piece blue satin flame Slingys, stolen from an apartment in center city Philly back in '71. Was going to college and had no money to replace em. Big, big bummer. Donate as others have said.

Yep, donate 'em... but don't write off the donation. Find a drum teacher / store in your area and give 'em to the most promising student that either has no or crap drums. That might kill the bad mojo / karma stinking up that kit.
