its kinda easy to find out who it was that sold
it since you mentioned it being sold on ebay. ^.~
that said... i've dealt with this seller many
many times, and he ships the same way to
everyone. the cel is placed in the smaller folder
and taped to the inside of the box to prevent it
from being shifted around inside of the box - and
also so they don't put the tape directly on the
cel itself or even the cel bag. i've not received
a cel in damaged condition from them before, its
always arrived safe, sound and in the condition
stated either on the auction or their website.
my advice? since you contacted them already,
wait for their response. i don't see the need to
have posted here, but thats just my opinion.
good luck. the folks who run the auctions/site
are *very* nice to deal with.
