You are looking at a very nice first issue of Nintendo Power. There are only 8 copies graded in better condition than 8.5! I personally bought this ungraded at a charity event from an art museum (I don't know why they had it).
It has lived in a dresser draw protected until I decided to get it graded. The book itself was flawless in my opinion inside and was afraid of damaging it more than it was and thats when I decided to grade it. I have a user copy that I would look at if I wanted to look at the book. The map/poster was minty and looked like it was never unfolded. Overall an impressive copy that deserves to be in someone's collection and not in my drawer.
I can also provide pictures outside of the slab before I submitted it to serious buyers. Picture make it seem like the capsule or magazine has numerous spots on it. It is not that way. The back of the magazine the blue that usually gets white markings is basically flawless. Nintendo Power 1 7-8/88 Nintendo of America Inc.
