strange...i have only ordered 3 over the last year, but all came wrapped. I guess it can go either way..
My T7 did not come in plastic wrap, just the zipper case. That was straight from Burton as a replacement for some minor damage to a T6.
Also the binding marks are not nearly as pronounced as they'd be if it was used. The topsheets get dented pretty heavily from bindings on these boards. The true tell should be the base, if there are no gouges, even tiny ones, then it was likely never used.
Ask for some store credit and take what you get then rip that f'ing board until it breaks(not that hard with the alum honeycomb core) and mount it on your wall.
Have you ever owned a board with an aluminium honeycomb core?
