Condition: VG+(+) (Vinyl and Labels)/VG++ (Inner Sleeves)/VG++ (Cover):
Vinyl has a light degree of sleeve inflicted ony wear... a little too much for a near mint grading. Labels are mint and vinyl is overall graded close to near mint.

Inner sleeve and cover has almost no signs of handling - cover is still in its original - opened - shrink wrapping... very nice and graded close to near mint.
