Please contact with me with any questions or issues you may have. Please understand that I am not an expert in any collecting field and am using more general terms and standards in referring to the items up for auction and I try to accurately assess the condition of each item. However. My idea of"great condition" may not be your idea of great condition so Please be sure to ask any questions you may have before the end of the auction. ADD YTT222 TO YOUR FAVORITES AND TAKE A LOOK AT THE MANY UNIQUE ITEMS I HAVE LISTED! Thanks and Have Fun!~
