Mine had the paper band around it for sure. Don't remember the color except it definitley wasn't red and for sure didn't say anything about pre-owned. Maybe my concerns are unfounded. I've always wondered because the plastic box was kind of scuffed up and the price was right, then when you brought that up it made me wonder.

I live in Lawrenceville, so you probably know which LGS I'm referring to, they usually have pretty good prices though, so maybe there is no cause for concern.
