So an unopened PSA pack designated as "authentic" means it is considered untampered with? Why no numerical grade? Thanks

Are you referring to the pack on Ebay?

Yes, an authentic grade means the pack has not been tampered with. Like cards, it can be in pretty bad shape but still be "authentic". Or the submitter could have asked for it to just be authenticated with no grade to be sure it was still sealed.

Personally, I don't understand grading packs. All I want to know is if its an authentic pack that hasn't been tampered with.

yes the pack on ebay. I know the seller says it has a big tear on the side of the pack. The picture is blurry but it does indeed look like a big tear.

The third picture in the auction is a sideview that shows the tear. It looks pretty significant to me because all of the cards appear to be partially exposed and therefore could have damage.

Yeah probably damage although I would never find out because I would never crack it open. :D
