This graded piece is extremely nice. Case Fresh!

The color on this one is awesome. Front side is extremely clean and bright. There are NO price stickers or sticker residue, tears or shadows. The bubble is factory sealed very tightly with NO yellowing or looseness. The figurine looks great with NO yellowing or smearing to the inside of the bubble.
