Is it possible these cheap ones Amazon has been periodically selling are returns from people who paid full price, removed the signature page, rewrapped it and returned it to Amazon for a full refund? Or would Amazon know better?
If they have a high dollar shrink wrap machine that could duplicate it with seam in correct spot, then I suppose
The factory sealed books have promo material inside indicating a signed copy. This is clearly not factory. I would want to see the sig, personally.
I wouldnt want to resell it at any point, not knowing if there are graphs inside or not.
Then again, not sure I wouldn't return it to Amazon if I got something looking like that.
Looks like a damned if you do, damned if you dont situation to me if ever there was one!
the packing there does not look right imo
If mine looks like that I'm sending it back. Looks sketchy
None of the 3 that I've gotten looked anything near that baggy. I'd consider that suspicious. I'd open it and take a video of the opening-just to provide proof if a refund is needed that there was something wrong (if the signature page is missing).
Just got mine and the plastic is also baggy. If anyone opens a "baggy" one, please post results.
It also could just be a simple return of the signed book by somebody who got one somewhere else or cheaper or cant resell bc these were nowhere as “extremely limited” as they claimed. You cant really re-use the original packing material and Ill bet the printed packaging material doesnt even get returned alot of the time.
I think the concern is that someone removed the signed page and resealed these, hence the looser plastic. However, it could also just be that these were just packaged in a different batch and the tightness of the plastic was probably not really considered to be important.
What was the printed material? There's a printed flyer (?) on the back inside the seal, is that it?
Thank you for confirming this is not the original seal. This means it should be opened or returned. There's no other way to guarantee if the signature page is inside. An honest return could have the signature page, but I'm sure there are some dishonest returns as well. I wouldn't count on Amazon to check for that.
