Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG+ (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - has a little superficial sleeve scuffing and marks - nothing needle inflicted - vinyl is in itself graded near mint.

Labels are plain near mint - hardly any signs of play or handling - vinyl is overall graded close to mint.

Picture cover has extremely nice front and back cover centers - very faint vinyl outline and only the very faintest wear along this on back. Cover has a few light wrinkling from edges - all from milder bends - otherwise extremely nice.

Seams has only a lighter degree of wear except for a mid-top pressure point - a little light and discontinued wear along lower seam - very little to top seam. Spine has a couple of spots of wear- typically at the origin of the wrinkles - does not affect the print in any way.

Top spine has a marginal dent - corners has otherwise only very marginal dents coupled with faint wear - all in all a simply very nice cover - not perfect, but very decent - graded VG+.
