About This Card
It cannot be seen in the photo, but there is a crease down the middle of the card.  For the most part when building the set I have not really been concerned about condition.  Usually when I start building from lots, I expect to find cards in varying conditions.  The condition adds to the flavor and the history of the card itself.
