Well i got a response from PNY
Hello Mr. (insert name here),



I have sent the picture to our engineering department and they have stated this residue is not sticker residue, but rather a residue from the cleaner they use during assembly, they mention that this does not affect the card adversely.



Best Regards,

Hector
