Possible Mold On Tapes

I bought a sealed copy of the 1992 Star Wars trilogy box set but when I opened it up the box was like stuck together and there was black staining inside of the box and the one tape (even though it was still sealed) also had some black spots inside the cardboard cover and on the label.

Would that be mold or something else?

I’ll try to post pictures later

Without photos I could not say for sure, though this sounds like some kind of water damage/moisture issue.  Tape mold is usually white and on the actual interior tape reels, but you can have box mold too.
