Has anyone else on here gotten their blister controllers graded by VGA? Or am I still the only fool to have paid to have them encased in acrylic? :-8

(gold one is not pictured because when I took the picture years ago, the case was damaged and had to be sent back... I currently have the full set graded and sealed)

It's hard to tell but my gold one is pretty yellowed. I might find another sometime down the road.
When I first obtained my Watermelon blister (from Finngamer through a trade/purchase) it looked barely yellowed... but after I had it VGA graded and sealed, over 5 years that blister has turned very yellow. It's interesting because none of the other VGA graded controllers turned yellow at all, just the Watermelon :-/

My full set of VGA graded blister controllers are sitting in a room that doesn't have direct sun. But as we know, the yellowing affect is due to the plastic reacting to air/oxygen.
