    I purchased a PSA 9 graded card off EBay.

    Upon looking at the back of the card, I noticed a link of ink.

    Seller is offering a decent discount, or I can get a full refund.

    Thoughts on how much this defect affects the value?

    Kind of hard to tell from the photo, but that almost looks like it's on the PSA grading case itself?

      It's definitely on the inside. I cannot for the life of me tell if it's the inside of the case or on the card itself.

      If it's on the card itself, it would affect the value significantly. Probably couldn't tell you by how much unless I knew which card it was, though.

        Hello there.

        New here, you're gonna have to bare with me if I'm doing stuff wrong.

        For Christmas I received a set of Pokémon EX cards. All are normal.

        But a Mew EX card I received has a spelling error. It says 'nees' as opposed to 'need'. I read that error cards are worth quite a lot, but I'm looking for an opinion on this specifically? Would it be worth more?

        Mind attaching a photo to your post? I'm inclined to think that card is a counterfeit as I can't find any information on any Mew EX error cards at this time.

          What's the texture like on the card? I see something that makes me think it's counterfeit (the copyright year in the bottom left completely not matching what should be on the card), plus a couple things that look counterfeit but I'm not 100% sure on, but I want to confirm the texture of the card first, as the texture (or lack thereof) will be the biggest tell in this case.

          Here's a link to another site's scan of the actual card, for reference: http://pokegym.net/gallery/displayimage.php?imageid=53565

          As you can see, there's a specific texture pattern the official card has.

            No, it doesn't seem to have that. The thing that's confusing me is that every EX card I got in that set has the year 2016 or 2017 on it. Are they all fakes? None seem to be textured but

            They might be. Do you have a photo of the package they came in?

                Okay, yeah, that's definitely counterfeit. No official TCG cards were branded with the Pokemon Go branding. Which confirms that your Mew EX is a counterfeit.

                Also, most Full Art EX cards are supposed to be textured in some way.

                    Could someone help me out with the value of this card? What I know so far: It is a Japanese Pocket Monsters Pokémon No. 066 Machop and it is a foil card.

                      $0, as it's a counterfeit/fake. None of the fonts or symbols are accurate to the actual card and that foil pattern has never been used on any official cards.

                      So, while I don't have a value for you (been trying to find what's supposed to be in the complete set to confirm), they are all from the first Pokemon World Collection.

                      Actually, scratch that, I think there's supposed to be 9 cards in there. It seems to be worth anywhere between $40 and $60 as a set.

                          So i found my old pokemon card collection in a card folder i had and decided to see what they go for these days. I did some research and found that the good ones to have are shadowless or first edition, i have neither of those. I dont want to sell them anyway but would any of these be worth getting a PSA rating? Theyre all base set 1999 except for the snorlax. Any help is appreciated, they are all in pristine condtion as they were kept in card sleeves in a folder and never played with. I have more that arent in the photo ie. zapdos and magneton.

                            Is this worth having sent out to be graded? It is a Holo.

                              Could someone tell me what I could expect if I sell this card? As you can see it is a first edition holo. I would discribe the condition as near perfect/perfect. On ebay I found offers from around 50 EUR up to 500 Dollar.

                              Thanks for your help.

                              Nah. Too many scratches on it, IMO.

                              Thanks for your help.
                              Were you checking the Sold Listings? Sold listings are what matters, not what is actively being listed, as what people are willing to buy for and what people are tryingt. Considering the English one only sold for about $20 USD (and the English language cards tend to be worth more than non-English cards), you should expect $10 US for it. Those listings you've seen are people trying to convince someone it's worth that much, honestly. Also, your card is not in perfect condition as far as I can tell. I see scratches on the card which would lower the value, to something more like $8 USD.

                                Hello all!

                                I have such a collection of pokemon stickers, visible on the pictures.
                                This is a collection from chipicao from 2000 or 2001. I do not remember exactly, I collected it when I was a very small :) :P

                                All stickers are kept in the studio for those over a dozen years.
                                They are all in PERFECT state, the glue still holds very strongly.
                                It's almost the whole collection, I miss a few of stickers.
                                Some of the stickers I have a few pieces.

                                Could someone tell me how much this can be worth?


                                sorry for my bad english :P

                                  The scratches were on the plastic sleeve it was in. Here is a scan without sleeve.

                                  Still too many scratches and frayed edges to be worth grading now. Maybe in 10 or 15 years.
