Some of those are keepers. Even if they are short, as Presentation Sets tend to be. Be prepared for some Minimum Size rejects if you're not careful.

I particularly like your Kaline, which seems devoid of the tendency to have fish eyes and print snow. Brock and Stargell are also nice.

I had never heard of a presentation set til about a yr. ago.I bought this set in 1978 & it always looked like it was printed yesterday but i did notice some were short so i thought i had gotten conned in 78.Im leaning toward getting it graded but its a pretty big set.I keep changing my mind on what to do.If i get it graded i probably wont sell it so im leaning toward SGC.Like BBO said its a crap shoot with this set.LMK what u guys think.

I might grade stars that "measure up" or appear oversized compared to the others. But I expect a TPG to hammer those colored bottom corners and SGC will be merciless on any print snow and surface flaws. Still, pick out the best of the best and send 20-25 in and see what happens. You can always crack and return them to their raw Presentation form. CS-1 holders would be ideal. Nine-pocket pages would show well, if you store them right and handle them carefully.
