    I wans wonding if a pack sealing error decreasses the value of a card.
    I got a Dawn Stadium with indents on the top of the card from the thing that seals the packs.
    On the smae day a little kid at the pre-release got a Leafeon Lv.X and it was a pack sealing error one too.
    Does this increases the price or decrease it?

    If it was for collection purposes then I would say it decreases the value , for playing purposes it wouldn't make to much of a difference in value, maybe a little less value.

    If you can find the right person then you can get more for them. I've seem misprint collecters buy them for double the normal card's worth.

    Imo it isn't a good thing because tbh the indents aren't hard to do if someone wanted to

    I think it should have a pretty big affect on a playable card's value since it basically makes it so damaged you can't use it. It would be considered a marked card. Maybe PUI would replace it or let you use a proxy for the card since it came that way straight from the booster, I'm not really sure, but it would be a hassle. If I was looking for a card to put in my deck, I wouldn't want one severely damaged like that.

    It's a minor error, depends if you want to play it or not. With sleeves(which most use), it's fine, so I'd say its no big deal

    I got two of those at my MD prerelease. One was an energy restore and the other is a bronzor.

    selaed error cards are not damaged beyond use as if you use sleeves which pretty much everyone in tourney's do you wouldn't be able to tell the difference in a sleeve.

    And unless it is a card worth the postage it is worthless to send to POP for replacement.
