I had to laugh when I saw that one. Did any of the hardliner shrinkwrappers have a heart-attack! Did we lose some forum members to catastrophic coughing? OOHHH......I see some Estate collections in the future!!!!! :lol:

More than likely, he "just" removed the shrinkwrap a few years ago, and is saying that to make the point that its in near mint condition.  Granted, I've had some "shrinkwrapped" mods where the shrink was so ripped up it looked in the picture like somebody just threw a piece of celophane on it.  Maybe the shrinkwrap was totally FUBAR'd?

I have to agree with that, I think thats more what is happening...

I slit the shink along the bottom of all my modules and slide them out, when i have finished whith them I slide them back in, I suppose I could say that they are still in the origional shrink;)

Now that would cause me to fall off my chair.   :D  I would hope that a collector's reputation would be thrown into doubt if this was found to be a common occurance.
