100% a counterfeit/fake. Basically all fonts are incorrect, all symbols are incorrect, and the card as a whole looks very off in color compared to the actual card.

Database link with pic of the actual card for your reference: https://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-tcg/pokemon-cards/platinum-series/pl2/64/

So I was looking through my collection of cards from all the way back to base set and in the mix I found this old card that even back then threw me off when I opened it. So I don't believe it to be a fake¿ it is exactly the same size and feel of all my other cards as well. Any help is greatly appreciated

Trying to remember what that type of error is called so I can verify if it's supposed to be all yellow or not. I'm inclined to say it's not but like i said, can't remember the term to refer to them to confirm it.

Ya what I've found they're not yellow I believe the ones I've seen were white... hmm so what do u think about it? Just wondering what others think.. does the back all look legit to you?
To me, the back looks legit. The colors aren't too uniform and seem true to an original. The tell-tale spots of a counterfeit aren't there, from my eye, and the edges don't look like they've been hand pulled from a sheet - Just some standard ware from sleeving and such. It could just be a printing error (like the white variant) where the yellow border was placed down first. Honestly, I'd need to do more research, but from the back of the image alone I feel it's legit.

Sorry for the double post I don't wanna keep notifying poor Getchy lol.

I have one complete album with Pokémon Coins from the Netherlands. They are from Series 2 (2001). Unfortunately, they're in used condition, as well as the album itself.

My question: what is the value in euros??? Can anyone tell me?

Okay, these coins you have here are nothing like the Gen 2 coins I'm familiar with. Where did you obtain these coins? Did they come from starter boxes? They look more like Tazos Pogs to me and that's a market I'm completely foreign in.

This is my first post so please excuse my ignorance as I have a picture but don’t know how to add it. The card in question is a Xerosic Full Art Trainer Card from XY Phantom Forces. It is collector number 119/119 and is an Ultra rare. The card isn’t in the best shape. I got it from my son and he doesn’t take the best care of his cards. It was pulled from a sealed pack out of a sealed tin he got for Christmas a couple years back. So I don’t see how it could be a fake, so maybe a misprint? It appears the picture is larger than normal as the grey borders are much thinner than cards on the Internet appear. The corners also appear rounder than normal. The word trainer appears to have a weird dot in the ink of the text. And to top it off the pictures online appear to be foil and this one is not.

While uploading a picture as an attachment would be nice to confirm, I'm 99% certain you've got a counterfeit (some are made by printing a scan of the actual card onto something).

How would a counterfeit have made its way into a sealed pack in a sealed tin?
Tin and pack itself could've been counterfeit, or been resealed. Wal-Mart allows returns of product so someone could have stuck in a counterfeit after lifting the rare from a pack, then resealed the pack and tin and returned them.

I picked up a moderately played rainbow charizard from burning shadows the other day for 99usd after tax.

I don't play the game and only collect, and I recently learned this card will rotate out of standard soon.

What do you guys think its financial value would look like post rotation? I understand most cards tank in price since competitive demand is lost. But being the first rainbow charizard, I don't know how much of that demand is driven by the collectors.
Basically, I'm wondering if I should get rid of this while it's still hot and pick it up later after the price cools down. And that's if it does go down at all.

That particular Charizard has seen basically 0 play since it was released, so I don't know how much it'll actually drop in value. We haven't really had many secret rare Charizards. The secret rare from Plasma Storm still fetches $95 for market price on TCGPlayer. Moderately played ones are listed on TCGPlayer for significantly more than what you paid (like $40-$60 more).

Given Charizard is popular, your safest bet may be to hang onto it.
