I'll take pictures in the morning, explain to me the issue with the tube please? I'm no collector (then or now) so I never removed it.

Screenprint is a process where ink is laid on top of the paper, not within the paper. Like anything solid, it forms and rests within the state that it is kept in. If it is kept in a rolled state, the ink will want to stay within that form. When unrolled or forced to a flatten state, the ink may crack or flake because of its rolled state. This is often common with metallic inks in particular.

That's why I just buy Giclee. Keep them in the tube till the time is right to flip.
