    My Gateway came without stickers on them from eachmall, it's legit.

    To check for the card's legitness, one of the contact pins usually reveals if it's legit or not, but I can't remember the exact details on what it was. I'll have to check it.

    Haha not sure if it was as expensive as some people may think.

    Considering today's exchange rates I got a 2nd brand new 3ds xl (updated my 1st one to 9.4) for 270 USD, and gateway for 100 USD packed with a 16 gb sandisk card.

    It's the pin in the center; it's always longer or shorter than the other pins. If it's longer, it's legit; if it's shorter, a it's fake. At least, that's what they say.

    Also, the contact is the gold-colored vertical strip opposite the bottom of the card; not the dark-colored strip closest to the bottom of the card. (I know you know that Team Fail, but other readers may not.)

    Just to clarify I'm playing a prank those cards are official the reseller just sent me those pictures informing that some cards came without stickers and he'll be receiving a new shipment in 2 weeks so he asked if I preferred a refund, waiting another 2 weeks or having some random R4 gold sticker placed instead. He is on the official gateway reseller list.
