  1. Good info. This helped me narrow down that a misprint card I have is fake. But it worries me that all my cards have always come from booster packs. So a lot of my cards could be fake. Damn shady comic book stores.

    1. If the cards came from real booster packs then the cards should be genuine… unless it was a fake pack of Pokemon cards… I’ve never seen that before. I’ve just seen reprints of high dollar cards sold online (usually, but not always, marked as “reprint”). All the cards I’ve collected have come from booster packs… I don’t buy individual cards because I’m not that serious about collecting/playing specific cards. I make due with what I get from the packs.
