Up for this auction is one of tougher ones to locate from the 1989 Football Set. I have a Super Clean 1989 Rookie Starting Lineup of Jim Covert of the Chicago Bears still factory sealed in the original package and this SLU has been professionally graded by the AFA grading company and it received a final grade of AFA 85 with subgrades of 85 Cardboard, 85 Bubble and 85 Figure. The piece looks mint. There are NO CREASES on either side of the cardboard, very rare. Not even a hint of a Kenner Heat Seal Vein on the back. There are No price stickers or sticker tears, shadows or residue. All of the corners are nice with No softness or separation. The bubble is factory sealed very tightly with NO looseness or denting or yellowing. The figurine looks nice with No inner paint rub or smearing or yellowing to the figure. Trading card looks nice and well centered. Front Hang tab support is clear with No yellowing. Back side of the package looks perfect with NO noticeable flaws, very rare. UPC sticker looks great. This final grade was easily deserved, should of gotten a 90 Cardboard Grade all day long. Looks as good as the day it was put on the shelf back in 89. This tough SLU comes sealed in the classic AFA acrylic case with the 3 subgrade verification sticker in the bottom left hand corner of the case. AFA Serial Number is 19903920, to verify it just go to AFA's website. AFA Case is in great shape with No scratches or chipping. As a bonus winning bidder will receive free U.S.Priority Shipping with insurance. Thanks for looking and sorry for the white flash glare spots on the scans!
