Your butt smells.... interesting.
As with any other card, value depends on who you ask.
To a player, it's most likely worth the same as a normal one, as it's the same physical card.
BUT, to a collector, specific reverse holos quite possibly are harder to come across, so if you find someone collecting the entire reverse holo set, it may be worth more to that person.
Of course though, it's only worth what someone will give you for it.
Functionally, the cards are the same, but one may be worth more than the other. I'm not sure of the actual statistics.
I would rather have a RH than a Holo. Since the RH looks funny and the holo is just boring, if you ask me.
I consider a Holo Gardevoir to be much more worth than a Reverse Holo. Regular Holos only appear in every 3rd booster (or even rarer in Sandstorm) and Reverse Holos are just worthless bonus cards in all boosters.
Then send me ALL your worthless bonus cards (I'll pay postage)!!! :clap:
A reverse holo of a holo-foil is much harder to find that the holo-foil itself, becasue the rarity is cubed.
For what it is worth the Becket Anime November 2003 gives a Holo Gardevoir a book value of $4.00 Low and $8.00 High and says the Reverse Holos are worth twice the price of a regular card so a RH has a Book value of $8.00 to $16.00.
However, as stated above you can only get what you get and you can't get any more than that.
That's funny, because POJO was listing RHs categorically at 1/2 the value (or less) of the corresponding holo when Legendary Collection came out...
rarity of an individual reverse foil is approx 1:100, rarity of an individual foil is approx 1:66 so reverses are 50% rarer than the premiums.
All my Reverse Holos that exist as uncommons or commons too, aren't worth much IMO. I'm not a collector, just a player, so I guess my opinion isn't that important. But with that it mind, I would gladly trade away all my Reverse Holo versions of commons and uncommons for two non-reverse holo versions of each!
