I bought a Secret Rare Pikachu card (BW #115) on eBay and it arrived a few days ago.
I can upload a pic if need be, but it's just I'm paranoid about fake cards (this one especially as it cost me $13 + shipping.)
The card is in mint condition. The Lightning symbol next to HP is holographic, as is the Pikachu in the illustration (but no other part of the illustration is holo), the rest of the illustration has a sort of 'bumpy' texture, as does the lightning bolt behind the attacks. The energy for the attacks are also holo, as is weakness and retreat energy symbols. The tiny symbol for the Black & White Expansion is also holo, and the tiny 'Rare' star.
The bit that concerns me however is that the card is slightly off-centre: the left border is about 1mm thinner than the one on the right. The bottom border is also 1mm thinner than the top. The back of the card has the blue border misaligned in the same way.
The card isn't 'tilted' or anything, the border's are just off. I know that border misprints can happen sometimes...
But do I actually have reason to think the card might be fake? I see no other signs it's a forgery, and the eBay seller has a 100% feedback score and over 2400 reviews.
Does this card look how it is supposed to from what I've described?
