As already stated, it does indeed look like there's glue at the top of the card above the bubble, plus there's some discoloration / glue / dirt beneath it at the top of the bubble too. I know the seller said the bubble was lifting there, so it COULD be caused by that, but I'd still be cautious. Plus, there's a lot of white specks of missing litho beneath the seal, which could be caused by the card slipping slightly when the bubble was heat sealed (and this could also explain the excess glue at the top of the card possibly), however it could also be where the bubble was imperfectly glued back on when being resealed. If it is a reseal, it's quite a well done one, but then again, if it is a reseal, it's not worth MOC money. Perhaps you could ask the seller for some more, larger and clearer photos to help you decide?

subzero wrote:A ROTJ Kenner Vader I had and sold a while back actually had a little excess glue around the bubble from the factory which was brown/yellowed and you could pick bits off of it ( wish I had a picture of it ), but it actually was a 100% original seal and not resealed and had a perfect waffle pattern. Iv'e also seen it before on another ROTJ bubble.
However with this Gam Guard it looks way different to the one I had as my one didn't have dry glue on the actual card, the Gam Guard does look very suspicious.
