So, I was trolling eBay today, and I come across this.

That's either mold or fire damage...on paper patterns. Nice!

What's even weirder than that is that the condition of the item is listed and brand-new, unused, undamaged condition.

You know it looks like it could be spray paint to me, just from it being on one side.

But yea, it was an odd one.
