I, uh, actually answered your question for this on the last page of this thread after moving your posts into this thread (specifically, this post: https://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=9797096&postcount=222) .

I'll repeat what I basically said in that post, though: It's an alternate/reverse holo version of the Deoxys you keep finding on the internet. Sets released around the time of EX Deoxys had their "reverse" holos as an alternate holo pattern like in the picture. Your best bet for searching is using "reverse holo EX Deoxys 16/107". It's the reverse holo of one of 3 Deoxys cards from EX Deoxys .

    Hey, I'm just curious about this card I have with a misprint on it.

    Altaria 12/106 from the Great Encounters set

    My card says "Evolves from Loudred", when clearly it should say "Swablu". I was just curious if this might be worth anything. I can't seem to find documentation of this misprint anywhere online!

    Thank you!

    Sounds like a fake/counterfeit, based on the "Evolves from Loudred" bit on it. Especially because you can't find anything about it online. An error that big on an officially released card would have been noticed and logged by now.

    Do you have pictures you could upload as attachments of it?

        Found some of my old cards, are any of these worth anything?

          Hello! I’ve been collecting cards for a while now, and I was recently told that I had a rare card. A 2012 holo charizard 136/135. I know it’s not fake as I got it from an official Pokémon card pack, but I’m not super sure on it’s worth?

            So I've gone through my old collection of cards from when I was a kid and came across shadowless Charizard from the base set (4/102). I'm wondering if anyone thinks the condition of the card is worth getting it graded and, what your guess on what the grade would be.

            I know it is not in mint condition but even those with a low grade go for a few hundred and it seems like the condition is the biggest factor on how much its worth. Its also possible I may be posting in the wrong community and you may know of one that could help me out more.

            P.S. yes I'm 100% confident it is not a fake. I very well remember when the game first came out buying a starter deck and 2 booster packs and my Charizard came from one of those.

            Link to the pics I've taken of the card

            Well, I only ever ask or suspect it's a fake if I see symptoms of what would be a good indicator about counterfeiting, and I don't see any signs of that here.

            So, for your non-first edition shadowless Base Set Charizard, it seems to be worth about... $25. At least that's where I'd peg it with the fraying at the edges. Last couple listings for the card on eBay don't seem to show any fraying and went for $35.

              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.

                    Yeah, I searched for it too but couldn't find it, unfortunately. Photo is now attached.

                    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.
