Condition: very good to fine. there was a tiny chip of paper loss near the top of the left blank border and five small tears in the left blank border; there was a 1" L-shaped tear in the left of the top blank border; someone put small pieces of brown tape on the backs of these areas, and also covering the top left corner where a diagonal crease had made the paper fragile; there was a thin line of surface paper loss in the edge of the brown area where the diagonal crease was and someone hand-colored that with a brown ink; there was a 1/2" tear in the middle of the right blank border (repaired with tape from the back); there was a single pinhole in the center of the top blank border; Other than the above truly minor defects, the card is in really wonderful condition. I can't imagine a collector who would not be happy to own and display this great card!
