How do I find the catalog number on this album without breaking the shrink wrap?

Thousands of people wore out their cassette versions of this in the 80´. I stole my copy of Licence To Ill from my sister and listened religiously to it until it was worn out. Amazing how popular this album became to be by 3 white rappers, rock riffs and simple 808 drum machine patterns. It even surprised Rick Rubin himself that it sold so many copies.
Classic in every way.
