    I came across a pair of rootbeer cyan fades the other day in a store and they are in perfect condition considering how long they have been sitting there and thought about buying them, but they didn't have the micro bag or original box for them.. I might try and get them to give me a bit of a discount off retail but if they couldn't should I even bother?

    The fade series area a great series of Frogskins and not likely to be repeated in quite a while, for me that last great widely available series of frames. Think what came after it, Acids, Blacklights, Acid Tortoise, all pale in comparison in my opinion. We've had over a year of poor choices. I think the Rootbeer/Cyan are great and, if you plan on buying to wear, get them. If it's for collection purposes than without bag and box ain't so good. Bag is obviously easy to get but for collecting you need the tagged box really.

    Yeah I would more likely buy them to collect, and even though I don't plan on selling for a long while that box is really important to me as well. I already have the purple/clear fades that I bought from the same store (different location) and they seemed to have no problem finding the box
    That said the micro bag I have a couple extra of anyways but its a reall bummer they don't have the box. I might just go ahead and get em anyways. Press them real hard to look for the box or maybe another store has it if they were transferred for a customer who ended up not wanting them.
