OPINIONS WANTED -- tampered BGS slab ???

OPINIONS WANTED -- tampered BGS slab ???
Any thoughts and opinions from those familiar with graded BGS slabs are welcome.

The bottom half of this slab appears to have lost its "air-tight" seal and appears "frosted" along the edges of the bottom half of the slab.

Does this appear as if someone may have cracked the slab and removed/replaced the card inside the slab???

Card/BGS id have been removed to hide the eBay seller's identity:

Sometimes I've wondered if BGS re-uses old slabs...

They are really hard to crack open. I would doubt it. There are no tool marks

I've seen similar with BGS and the other grading companies as well. Looks to me like it's just a matter of the way the light was hitting it during the scan/photo process. This type of thing happens to some of my graded cards when I scan them as well and they are perfectly sealed.

Here's an example of a broken BGS slab.

I am pretty sure it's just a scanner issue with that card. My scanner does the exact same thing to all of the BGS cards I scan.

Im curious as to what your actually even talking about? Are you talking about the edges right along the red blanked out part, or the very outer edge around the whole card that looks speckeled?
