I bought so many Pokemon cards that are fake, How to know the fake cards from the real ones?
buy 'em from shops
Few ways to tell.
1. If it feels smooth like they are laminated, they are fake
2. If the picture likes like it was photocopied, they are fake
3. If they have Engrish on them, they are fake
4. If the pack doesn't even come close to looking like an official package and again looks copied, most likely fake
5. If they are cut all weird, like the borders are all fucked up, they are most likely fake.
That's just a few points I look out for.
Not the best advice because I have bought from some shops that have sold me fake cards (this including sold me fake Yu-Gi-Oh cards)
This is pretty much general for all trading cards.
There is one SIMPLE way.
Shine it near a light and see if there is a smallo black line inside the white part of the cardboard. that shows the real from fake, they have used this and announced it many years ago when jungle was released
THIS. You gotta turn it like... This => (|)
Sideways, and look at the card in the light.
Also, always abide by "if it's too good to be true, it probably is" adage when buying cards.
So pretty much the Rules of thump in any case.
Also to avoid fake cards, try not to buy from flea markets or dollar stores. Sometimes you get real ones at flea market if you buy singles, but if you buy packs they are normally fakes.
THX for the tips guys but I already know those. It would be helpful to know what are the real Pokemon websites, because some packs say the website is www.go-pokemon.com, some say www.pokemon.com etc.
They both direct to pokemon.com, so they're both real. (The websites that is)
I just remembered a few other websites they mentioned on a pack of PTGC, they are:
Are they fake?
i had some fake ones cuz on the back of the card was lighter then the original ones
