First thing, don't blast them...if you use the wrong media, you will end up with a few ounces of scrap aluminium.

If they are straight, and don't have cracks around the mounting holes, they will be $150 / ?90 on eBay, give or take. A bit more for one with the script on both sides.

I agree with Mark. Don't blast them. Clean them a bit if you like but basically leave them alone. I'd put them on eBay, two seperate listings, take good pictures and give an honest description, and see what they do.... you'll get a fair price. Eric
