Vent holes alone don't mean it is genuine; now days they can be faked.
UKG would probably grade it, but i highly doubt vga will.

A game being graded means this: VGA is certain it's a factory sealed item.
Even if we know it's 100% factory sealed, or even if we believe it's 100% factory sealed (without no obvious proof), remember VGA can still reject the game for grading, or they perhaps might have to open the seal, and judge it as qualified.
It's a risk you have to take, unfortunately, when it comes to those rare sealed anomalies. This is partly why the red-strip Pal seals and the Ntsc V-seals are more sought after, as they are easy to pick and more likely to be legit and accepted for grading.

To be honest i guess VGA wont grade that one. They dont even grade Y-fold sealed pal PS stuff without a PS strip, even if the came came that sealed that way. And the next point why im very sceptical is, that i remember that Whisky had a nice copy of Tomb Raider PAL German. I guess it was German yeah. He bought that one for 15 Euros. That game had also nice ventholes. But he was so curious that he opened the seal. And there it was, booklet was inscribed, CD's where scratched etc. Im really sorry to say, but i wouldnt trust that seal...
