I have noted above the specific issue grading notes. These should be considered "reader" editions, ranging Good to Fine. Each issue is individually bagged and boarded (silver age size), placed between cardboard backers, and placed in a Gemini comic mailer. This is then mailed wrapped in a water/tear proof mailing envelope.
I use painters tape to better secure packaging. If you have any questions about the item, please ask!
