They're asking $250, but I'd have to have it shipped.

Wow, that's a kids set? Looks a bit better than that to me, although I could be wrong. I love that green wrap.

I agree with you, it's a cool looking kit, perfect for a St. Patty's Day gig.

Definitely a kid's set. I'd pass, but that's me.

Only a "kid's set" in terms of sizes! This is a rare "Junior Outfit", which were cataloged without a floor tom. Looks like a special order that included the floor tom. These are definitely not "toys", but just smaller versions of what Pearl was offering in the early 60's. The price savings came from centered-mounted lugs and less expensive hardware, such as the tom holder and floor tom leg brackets. Both Ludwig and Slingerland did essentially the same thing with their Club Date and Stage Band series of drums.

That cool Green Diamond wrap is very rare! $250? I'd be all over it just for the coolness, and rarity, factor! And, as I've always said, condition is everything. These drums are really, really clean...as if they were hardly played. Get them...get them now!
