    Hi, I was just looking through my binder, putting in some cards that I just got from league, and, as I turned over the page, I saw a card with the Pokeball simble upside down. Thinking that a card must have been turned over, I turned back the page. Nothing was upsidedown! So, I took out Mew delta from POP 5, which was the card, and looked at the back. The Pokeball simble was upside down! I checked and rechecked, but the Pokeball simble WAS UPSIDE DOWN! Is this an error? If so, do you know how much it is worth? I never saw this before, so I'm just curious. Thanks in advance, Arceus999.

    Is it the Holo or Non-Holo version?

    I think all of the holo ones were like that. It is nothing out of the ordinary if it is the holo one.

    The holo one is worth like $4 when an error.

    Not all of the holo ones are upside down. My error one was damaged in the packaging, and I ended up getting a replacement in the mail, and it was rightside up.

    Yes, it is the Holo version. So it's about 50/50? Or are most of them Errors?

    This is the first I've heard on a non-error one!

    Oh, okay, so more about 90/10 for the errors?

    I don't know, but as of right now, it's the non-error one that's worth more

    Oh. My friend has one, so I'll see if he has the non-error one. If he does, I'll trade him for it.

    Pop, you've now got me curious as to how much one of the non error ones would sell for.

    Well heres food for thought. Pikachu #12 holo of the POP 5 set has the same upside down Pokeball error. Thinking if i bought the package it came in, i'd have an error version. Boy was i wrong, the one i got was NOT an error copy. So rather than spend another $13-14 bucks on the package, and take my chances. I purchased one that was an error (as it was removed from the package) on E-bay. I've noticed that most error cards have been corrected. So it's a matter of finding the corrected/error that you need. I have Mew POP 5 error, just need to find one corrected.

    I just bought POP5 3/17 Mew d on ebay, Holo- Error (reverse backing)

    Is this a legit card? When did Pokemon release this HOLO version? We never got one out of POP pack, but I know the POP packs are never Holo. Finally, is this possibly just a "FAKE"

    They've been including holo POP cards in blister packs for a while now. Guess you never noticed them all over the store shelves :tongue:. Yeah, it should be legit, as they were officially released. Now if you stumble onto any holo English Espeon* or Umbreon*, it is time to get suspicious! They never made any of those!

    Unknown until someone reports a sale of one.

    Oh, okay, because my friend has one, and I'm trying to get it off him.

    Well they don't come in Blister packs, they come in 2-3 pack packages. You get 2-3 packs of TCG Random sets, a coin and a holo POP promo.

    Yeah, isn't that considered a blister pack? If not, then what are they called?

    I'm not sure, i've always thought Blister "packs" were actual Packs. Why they call them Blister packs is beyond me anyway, as we called the boxes "Booster Box". I guess it all depends on ones opinion of reference to the packs or packages. I just don't want people thinking they come in "Packs" as in a Booster Box pack. Sorry if i offended you in anyway, as that wasn't my intentions.

    Blister refers to the transparent plastic part of the packaging. It looks like a blister on skin

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blister_pack Of course, you could have just Wiki'd it.

    So a regular pack of cards has nothing to do with blister packaging. They're called Booster Boxes because they contains Booster Packs that "boost" your collection. IIRC a long time ago they actually said "Booster" on the packs."

    SLOW DECK - Pop series cards are pretty unlikely to be fakes. I've never seen a fake Pop series card, and I go out of my way to find fakes. Counterfeiters stick to the big, popular sets; when you think about it, plenty of people don't even know what a Pop card is. Also fakes tend to be at least a couple of sets behind.
