Even super nice you can't get much for older tires even if NOS for just OK tires like these maybe $15 a set on ebay if you do cheap shipping.

Old tires = minimal value. Besides the possibility of early blowout or chord failure no one except the insane are running 19mm tires these days. I would put them on a bike you're going to sell or simply throw them away.

They might be worth something, IF by chance you were able to preserve the sidewall latex coating and tread rubber from drying out through the years....
The sidewalls on old Turbos especially, are prone to dry out and turn to dust and sloughing off while you are riding, eventually leading to cords releasing from the kvalr bead and a sidewall blowout......don't ask why I know.....
