    Hey everyone, new to the site have been collecting Pokemon cards since the game came out (minus the past 10 years) Throughout my collection I've always had this charizard card with a mis print from factory, a small perfect size ink dot over top of where it says Nintendo on the bottom left. Curious to know if anyone has seen this on other cards and in your opinions do you think the value would increase?. Never had the card graded but imo is in good shape.

      From a brief search, that looks like a "someone dropped a pen on it" issue.

      It's not currently a known base set misprint, so odds are it's user error.

      That said, I don't think it'd be worth much anyway.
      Long ago, superstitions were spread about it,
      saying it brought disaster. This fed a hatred of it,
      and it was driven deep into the mountains.
      It protects fields and warns people of disaster,
      so one ought to be grateful for it.

        It does look that way. But I bought the pack containing the card back when they first came out 20 ish years ago. The Mark has always been there like you said nothing crazy for a misprint. Just curious to see if anyone else has seen them.

        They are a thing that happen to some cards. They don't really make it worth any more than the unaffected card. Usually, they actually make it worth less. Some buyers might seek out this oddity, but they are a small minority of buyers.
