help narrowing down year on a super champion rim

I recently was gifted 2 super champion rims/rings the have a blue oval super champion logo with competition in a center white bar, no other markings or stickers. Theyre brand new, perfect condition, im trying to nail down year of manufacture and possible value, as they might be able to fund a build im working on. any help would be greatly appreciated

Could be a lot of things, or models. Size? No. of holes? etc. To obtain a reasonable answer to your question, you really need to learn how to post pictures here.
And if you're just looking for info so you can sell them, try doing a search of completed listings on ebay.

Velobase can usually be pretty helpful.

I would say they are Super Champion Competition rims. heh hehe. Pale blue or darker blue labels? Not that I know the details.
27 inch clinchers?
