Most collectors are completists. I for one like the Time Capsule Look of my 1979 slingerland Buddy Rich outfit. I have all tubular stands and pedals for it, down to the Zildjian cymbal snaps!
Let me turn on the Way Back Machine:

Those old Slingerland hoops were really strong, considering all the work they had to do - holding the toms, the spurs, the cymbals - not to mention holding the head tension! Amazing that they didn't split!
Just saw this. I had no idea one could order seven different colors, including a "spring-green". Try finding an 18" floor tom to match that kit!

I once received a new, Zildjian A 17" thin crash from Music123. It arrived with no packing at all, sharing a box with a cymbal stand, and it came squashed and inverted.
Reminded me of a poem someone posted here years ago:
