I will be 00ber ticked-off if the card I got off ebay is fake. The seller said it was authentic,and even listed some ways you can tell whether or not it's authentic, but he may have been lying.
For one thing, the card has different feel to it.Not sure if this matters. But it feels smoother on the front side. Second, there are flecks of holographic stuff around the front of the card. Small flecks, mind you. Third,the ATK and DEF stats are X000 and X000. Is that a sign that it's fake? And lastly, the back of the card does not have the Yugioh Trading Card Game logo at the bottom nor the Konami logo at the top. If a scan of the card is necessary, let me know.

But I'm seriously convinced I've been ripped off -_-

just to ask could you give a scan of the card i think it is fake but the attack is right that is what slypher's attack is X thousand points so basically x is the number of cards in your hand
real cards have a Konami logo or what ever it is, of officilaty sp?

The feel should be diff... The flecks are on my Raigeki just because its in bad condition... Stats are right... The back of the card thing... thats wrong for slifer I think... but slifers illegal regardless... waste of money either way unless you're a collecter...

The back of the card hsould be red and should not have the Yugioh TCG logo so that's okay, if it's red. And slifer has X000 ATK and DEF so that's also okay...

Like Mewtwo said, it's a waste of money because it's a card you can't use anyway.

It was made for collectors....but it's expensive...I don't find it SUCH a waste of money...

Doesn't sound fake, the fecks around a holographic card isn't that unusually. I have two cards in my collection that have the same thing on them.

Yeah, see I don't play at tournaments or anything. I just wanted the card because its cool, and yes I'm a collector rather than a duelist.

It sounds like its official, based on what you guys said, but it is lacking the Konami logo on the back...

The god cards are a waste you cant even use them in a tourny. Their only good for collecting.

Shining Kyogre is right. I don't care about tournaments because I just COLLECT the cards, so to me they're not a waste.

Tell me. What is found in the bottom left hand corner.

a.) A string of japanese texts.

b.) THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED IN A DUEL (or something like that)

c.) A card code.

Yep, it looks just like that. But is there supposed to be a Konami logo on the back?

No, if its authentic, the back will be blank, and in slifer's case, as red as the front is.

yeah, red isnt really right.

Its more of a orange red last I checked, but if yours looks like the image you should be fine.

It's a darker shade of the regular card colors on the back. And the swirly-patterns are slightly different.

It should be real. I got one in a package of card sleeves (yes, it did say so on the package) and had it checked by a profressional authenication-what-cha-ma-call-it guys. it was perfectly real. I even have it here with me. if it looks like you say it does, it probably is. but since it can't by used in official play, real or fake, it doesn't matter unless you save collectables to sell them later for more moolah. still, if you do duel and your friends don't mind, you can use it in unofficial games at home. just be sure to look online or in the N-DS game for the card effect, just to be fair to their rear-ends;D.
