    Default Fake Diamond and Pearl cards?

    So I've ordered several Pokemon cards from various, high-ranked sellers on eBay. I've noticed that some of the Diamond and Pearl cards I purchased might be fake.

    They're holographic like typical holographic cards with the shiny circles that have a rainbow spectrum shine, but the shiny circles are scattered all over the front of the card (but they are dimmer than the Pokemon's artwork).

    Has anyone seen these before? I got a Leafeon (the one that's shiny--not the one that's holo in the Theme deck) from Majestic Dawn. Luxray from Diamond and Pearl. Gardevoir, Gallade, Flygon, and Jumpluff from Secret Wonders.

    I received Gardevoir first, and purchased myself another one from a different seller, and the card I received only had shiny circles in the artwork.

    But after receiving these from numerous highly-ranked sellers, are these real? I've tried searching on Google, but I found nothing.

    I can't really get a photo of the shiny circles outside the artwork, but here is a scan:

    Thanks!

    A bigger, clearer scan of just one of those cards might help. But from what I can tell they look like real cards to me.
    なにがでるかな!?

    The location of the circle's on the card's do help, also if those are fake's they're very good at not being fake.

    I have some of thouse cards, they look perfectly fine.

    Though they may just be really well done fakes. I wouldn't be able to tell the diffrence at first glance.

    Here's a scan of Leafeon:leaf2.jpg

    Scanning them at the highest dpi, you still can't see those extra circles.

    You know the shiny circle things that are on the holo-foil image. They the same type of circles, which are scattered over the border and the card text area.

    It's supposed to be like that in Majestic Dawn and probably a few others.

    Oh I saw one just beside the top border, now I see what you're talking about. No it's actually common with alot of holo foil's in diamond and pearl because of the paint they used on the foil's was so weak you could actually see straight through to the foil. my gardivoir has that throughout the poke power and the attack.

    Alright, thanks for all the tips. c:

    It's not that way with all the Diamond and Pearl cards. I have another Leafeon from Majestic Dawn that doesn't have the extra circles. xD

    I'm glad I didn't rip any of them xD

    Yeah, they look real to me! A bigger scan would help, but just by looking, it seems pretty legit! PM me with any questions or concerns you may have.

    I just looked at them again, and I realize what exactly you are talking about. I agree with Ven, some of those faults in the border, but that IS normal. I can send you a scan if you would like, as an example.

    Sorry for the late reply--busy weekend at work.

    Send me a scan--that would be great! c:
