The book is about VG/EX. There is cover separation at the bottom (there is a detailed picture of this). The top right corner exhibits a tear that has been taped. Cover also shows creasing at top and bottom right hand corners. Inside pages are all pretty clean and crisp with no markings or tears with natural light browning wear. Inside binding also clean.
From a smoke free home. I have had this item for about 20 years, was given to me from a neighbor. I am an Oriole fan so did not really do much with it other then store it over the years in a plastic binder.
I have posted 12 pictures so you can get a good feel for the condition of the book and the cool content inside.
