    I found these cards in an auction, but can't determine whether they're fake or misprints. Sorry for the tiny images, but that's all I have.

    I know that there are holo Vaporeons without the Jungle symbol, but I can't find anything on it's non holo version. Also, I can't find a single 1st print Team Rocket Diglett that's holo outside of this auction.

    Unfortunately the seller didn't respond to my request for more (and larger) pictures, and now the auction has ended, so I guess we'll never know.

    Thanks for (kind of) confirming Diglett, I thought so too. And I know that the Jungle set included non-holo versions too, but this card was missing the Jungle set symbol below the picture, which - as far as I know - only happened as a misprint on the holo versions. I didn't dare to buy the cards, after all, the only card I was interested in (assuming it was a misprint) might have been a fake.

    Yeah, the missing jungle symbol was only on the holo versions of the cards.
