Quoted from UNCgump:

I am looking at a game to buy ( Flash Gordon)and the seller says the playfield Mylar was removed. Is this good or bad? Implications for longevity?Why would someone remove it?

In short it looks better (or it should if no paint was ripped off). In a home setting unless you're very anal you won't need mylar.

Over time, eXpecially an older game like that, the Mylar dulls and dirties and just isn't attractive. The risk with older games is the mylar can easily rip paint off...so keep your eyes peeled for touch ups.
