Whoa, boys! Check out the bidding war on the ebay Champagne Sparkle "Club Date" kit - the one that Jaghog first mentioned to us. 6 bidders have run the price tag up to $1500 in 3 days, with 3 more days to go! At least one of the bidders has an auto-bid and it's working hard to keep up! :-)

ebay item number: 304313145807

And by the way, I asked the seller for the badge numbers: Bass14x20 SN 371935 Floor Tom 14x14 SN 371937 Mounted Tom 8x12 SN 369285

Regards, mb

That's a good looking champagne sparkle Clubdate kit *edit* shell pack, I mean...but I disagree with the listing..."Unmodified".........*psssst...the bass drum was repainted*. It appears they did a good job of repainting and I'm glad they disclosed that fact... but I would certainly consider that as a modification since it isn't original.

That 1966 Champagne Sparkle "Club Date" kit (3 piece shell pack) went for $2250 on ebay! Whew! I didn't think it was worth half that amount.

That's good news for those of us who have vintage collections, but that was certainly a case of someone's "just gotta have it" syndrome.

Been there, done that! :-)

That's a premium price for that shell pack, but I'm glad to see prices like that, anyway. I sold my complete Deluxe Classic kit years ago for just a bit more than that shell pack went for.....

Maybe the cd is the new rare kit as that db on the bay is stuck at 1950

Related comment, guys...Just finished watching "I am Woman" on NETFLIX, the 2019 bio of Helen Reddy. Tremendous! ! ! ! !

Couldn't help notice two Clubdate kits being played during concerts - the first (that I noticed) was in Champagne Sparkle, the second appeared to be Silver Sparkle. The third kit that I noticed was maybe a Slingerland - the tom mount looked like a Slingerland to me, but I'm not knowledgeable on those drums.

If you get a chance, I'd highly recommend that biography. I give it 5 stars! And you can pay more attention to the drum kits than I did - they are only seen for a couple seconds each.

Regards, mb
