Hi I have a set of 5 cards of which have outrageous hp. I'm wondering if they are fake or misprints? The backs look faded, but the cards are from 2015. I'm not very familiar with pokemon so sorry for the lack of detail. One card is a Florges with 45680 hp, the collector number is 66/106, has Pokébeach.com in the bottom right of the picture. Thanks for your time 🙏

Absolutely 100% counterfeits if they're all ridiculous HP counts. HP misprints for the number basically do not happen.

What probably happened was someone took the scans Pokebeach.com does for their card database so people know what the card looks like, saved a copy of the image to their computer, opened something like Photoshop and edited those HP totals, and then printed the cards off.

Hi everyone, I came across my collection of cards and have made some progress, but still need some help. Hope you guys can help me out !
So far, I've been able to split my EU cards into different categories, don't really know if there's anything valuable there ? I also have a ton of Japanese cards, where some seem to be early prints. Could anyone help me out how to get a rough estimate on how much these are worth ? I don't have to know it up to the cent, just a rough estimate would be great. If need be, I'm also fine with letting someone tax it for me, but I'm at a crossroad here... hope you guys can help !!
Do you have some photos you could post here in this thread?
whoops

Hi guys, I hope you don't mind me asking. But I have a few rare Pokemon cards, and I'm not sure how much they are worth. I have a first edition Machamp card for example that I see listed for a few pounds, a few hundred pounds, a even for a few thousand, so I'm not sure which is correct. See the images below, I would describe it as near mint condition, bar some slight scuffs along the edge of the back.

See the attachments.

Many thanks.

99% of the Base Set Machamp were printed in 1st edition, so it’s really the ones WITHOUT the symbol that are worth real money. Also depends on if the card is shadowless, which yours is not. I’d say it’s probably worth $10, looking at the condition.

Thanks so much for the reply. OK so you mean without the 1st edition symbol, they are worth more?

I have a few others without this symbol, would these be worth more.
Fairy means specifically that Machamp is worth more without that symbol. Machamp is the only card that applies to, and only the one from the Base Set.

The 3 you posted in this post that I've quoted would not be worth more than their 1st Edition stamped counterparts.

The hierarchy for most Base Set cards goes:

1st Edition Shadowless
Shadowless non-1st Edition (usually referred to as unlimited)
Shadowed non-1st Edition

With errors sprinkling in usually a tier above the print run they're an error for, though they also have to be actual errors and not machine printing defects.

For Machamp, the hierarchy is:

No 1st Edition stamp (and, obviously, confirmed as authentic and not counterfeit)
1st Edition Shadowless
Shadowed 1st Edition


As for pricing, all of those are shadowed ones:

Gyarados, Shadowed non-1st Edition: $10. Has some edgewear.
Clefairy, Shadowed non-1st Edition: $5. Has some edgewear and scratches on the holo.
Charizard, Shadowed non-1st Edition: $90. Has some edgewear. Prices are all over the place because people do appear desperate to get Base Set Charizards, but I don't think yours would be in good enough shape to list at NM (near mint).
whoops

I have a Giratina lv55 reverse holo 9/127 but it has a rising rivals set symbol. Is it fake or something? Because I found that Giratina lv55 reverse holo is from base set.
Pls help
Considering there wasn't actually a Giratina in the Rising Rivals set, only in the Platinum base set - which has a symbol that is probably supposed to be Giratina but quite frankly just looks like a crab - I'm inclined to say yours is a counterfeit.

Do you have a picture of the card so we can confirm with 100% certainty, though?

Hi, I've searched around for ideas of worth for this Misprint Pikachu EX card and come back empty handed, any ideas of pricing would be greatly appreciated :)
Card name: Raikou EX (should be Pikachu)
Card Set: XY promo set
The collector's number: XY84
Not first edition
Shadowless
English
Wrong names are fairly common among counterfeits. Compare it to official images of the card and you may notice even more differences, such as incorrect fonts. Also, compare the card back to your official cards; fakes often a blurry or washed-out look.

Hi

I was wondering if you could guess a price on a card

Shellder
Fossil set
1st edition
54/62
It is a “common” Card, However it is a full hologram and I’ve been unable to find another like it.
It’s near mint or mint.

Thanks in advance.
Sounds like a bootleg sticker. Still a neat novelty to hang onto, though!

TLDR : Omanyte 52/62 with yellow stain in yellow circle I can't find anywhere. Any value? Not fake because it's my own childhood cards.
20201011_211240.jpg

So I just found a couple hundred cards from my childhood and while scrolling the cards I saw Omanyte and I searched it online to see if it was rare, which it isn't (and I now know just by the circle..), but I couldn't find any with that yellow circle stain thing. Is this of any value? Also bonus picks to evaluate in case this is just a yuky circle card after all.

I actually took it out of the card folder, it’s clearly a fake looking at it closely now. Dang I was hopeful of retiring.

Hope I'm not being too cheeky, but would love to know about these cards too if you don't mind. I have two from the original movie that they gave out with the tickets.
Sorry for the delay.

Unlimited run Base Set Blastoise: Prices are kinda all over, but I'd expect $40 for that one.

Black Star Promo 2 Electabuzz: $4

Black Star Promo 5 Dragonite: $4

So, an aside: just because you had them from your childhood, does not mean they're not fakes. Kids are easily duped into getting counterfeits, unfortunately. Most who collected Pokemon cards as a kid wound up with at least one in their collection.

For Omanyte, that's just a manufacturing defect. Doesn't really increase value unless you find someone who likes collecting manufacturing defects.

Neo Revelations Shining Gyarados has some value, though. About $120.

Neo Revelations Ho-oh: $50.

Hi guys,
Just wondering if this hitmonlee holo is a fake. All that I've seen have a gold background. Cheers.
Yes, that is a fake. That's a holo pattern not used on any Pokemon cards at all.

Curious about these base set water energy cards. 2 of them seem like a brighter yellow then the other 2. The lighting may seem to add this but they really are a brighter yellow. They aren't counterfeit, i know that for sure. Is this what would be considered "shadowless"? Or just printed a little differently? Hope the photo came through.

Can anyone give a guess on what it’s worth like this?
Ahh.. sorry man but in that condition you're not going to be getting much for that card. It's just too damaged. And actually, looking at the creasing, I'd estimate that it's actually a proxy card. I mean it's a Charizard regardless so it'll sell no matter what to someone out there.. but I wouldn't expect anything more than like $10 for it. :/

Idk I don’t see any signs of it being a proxy. Also that’s not a crease the card went through the was. I’ve had this card in this condition for 20 years
That, uh, is a crease, no matter how the card got it. Source: have let cards go through the wash or otherwise get water damage when I was a kid myself.

As Fairy says, it's too damaged to expect more than $10 for it. Shadowless unlimited print run Base Set Charizard aren't exactly scarce.
