Wow... didn't even know Art played a kit that big/that configuration.
I always thought he was a 4-piece kinda' guy???

It's a cool kit, but not sure why the seller refers to it as and "Art Blakey". The only "Art Blakey" kit is shown in the 1974 catalog, and it's a 4pc. I messaged the seller to find out more. Let's see if he responds.

Tompeter is some kind of automated/bot account. They never post anything but for sale posts and they're always linked to different eBay accounts. It's weird. You'd need to contact the eBay seller to find out why they think they have an eight-piece Blakey set.

I think he mentions Art Blakey because it is similar to a kit that he played, not in exact configuration though.

Here you can see the actual pearl kit that Art played, watch the video too it’s cool. Steve kept this kit for himself.

When I saw Art in the 1980’s he was playing a Pearl set with three mounted toms and at least one floor. Im not sure of the exact sizes but I do remember a smalker mtd tom possibly 10”.
