My friend, you are the only other person I know who has one. :)

I’ve never seen a 10, but I know an 8 sold for like $1200 on eBay. That's a pretty lofty price in my mind (I'd expect about $300 for it), but hey, shoot for the stars. I know there are many people who exclusively keep an eye out for these when they appear on market.

edit; Sorry, I forgot to answer the other half of your question! The history of this card is rather obscure because it's never been confirmed whether it can be pulled from a booster. It has been pulled from precon decks, however.

    Thanks for your answer, so little information to be found about this card, still happy to have one :P
    Maybe you know something about the worth of this kind of uncut boxtopper sheet?

    Hello. I've gone ahead and moved your thread to the appropriate section for the topic you had questions on, as the Feedback and Support section is only for site-related issues. Pokemon Trading Card Game is the appropriate section for card related questions for future reference.


    Anyway, basically, there are a couple grading services used by the Pokemon TCG community: PSA (Professional Sports Authenticator) and BGS (Beckett Grading Services). Most people use PSA and their grading are what most people who might buy a graded card will be looking for.

    Here are the fee pages for each:
    https://www.psacard.com/fees/
    https://www.beckett.com/grading/compare-our-services


    Hope this helps!

    Out of curiosity, what card was it? Almost sounds like it's a counterfeit rather than an actual manufacturing defect based on what you describe. You can upload an image as an attachment if you wanna show it.

    I've seen quite a few sheets for sale but it's not my expertise. Looking at the picture, it seems you only have the printed layer or the laminate and not the cardboard body of the card due to transparency - which is suspicious. Again, I don't know much about sheets and how they come about but I do know how the cards are printed and I've never seen anything like that. I'm inclined to think that it's fake.

    As for a potential price, Skyridge cards seem to be selling well individually! Though with how people inflate the price of sheets I honestly don't know what a fair price would be for those. Last I heard, a Neo Genesis common sheet sold for nearly $100. Looks like a holo Fossil sheet is going for around $80 too. That said, Skyridge is a notoriously expensive set.

    After searching I couldn't find any information about a box topper Skyridge holo sheet in its whole. May be entirely uncirculated. May be a scam.

    Just out of curiosity.. These are oversized cards, right? Are the numbers at the bottom from 9/12 to 12/12?

      Hello. I'm relatively new to collecting pokemon cards again. Collected a bit as a child. My daughter is obsessed. We received a relatively strange looking card in a lot of cards we purchased for her recently. My assumption is that it's fake, as I can not find one exactly like it anywhere. But, I figured I better be safe than sorry before tossing it and ask people smarter than I. It's a japanese holographic Raikou No.243 from the Neo Revelations set (I think symbol looks like a circle with 3 little spikes) the artist is Naaya Kimura. The holo pattern looks like the pattern used on the top sun cards. The back looks faded and has no date or tm information and the red line is misplaced on the bottom. Thank you for your time.

      Just based on the holo pattern alone, it's probably a fake.

      Would posting a picture of the card be possible? Cause this is confusing me. Only one holo Raikou was printed for Neo Revelations, drawn by Ken Sugimori (13/64). If you know that the artist is Naoya Kimura, the only Raikou she made for Neo Revelations (22/64) was non-holo.

      Holo by Sugimori:

      Non-holo by Kimura

      If what you have is the second card, but it's holographic, than it's most certainly fake. :(

        I would be more than happy to post a picture of the front and back, but I am unsure as to how. I attempted to do so in the original post and an additional post after using the little paper clip icon located next to the smiley face icon from my phone but I have had no success. It takes me to a different page and allows me to select my files for upload, but nothing ever happens. I apologize I am not very tech savvy. I will try in just a bit from a computer and see what happens. Thank you all for your help.

          100% counterfeit/fake. I think it's actually a sticker, though, so it's not totally useless.

          And unfortunately uploading attachments from mobile is not currently possible on The PokeCommunity because of the way attachment uploading currently works.

          Yeah, sadly, that card is 100% fake. :( Sorry about that.

          Still, it's a cool looking card and you can always hang on to it for the fun of it! I've got a few counterfeits in my collection just for the giggles. :)
