    Hey you guys. I'm back here with another question. Got two booster boxes of Plasma Freeze. Sealed and everything. Opened one of them, got 3 FAs, 2 EXs, and 1 Spec. But the weird thing is, I had 37 packs in the box instead of 36. Ever heard of this happening? The other box has 37 packs as well.

    I bought a blister pack for 4$ that had 2 packs in it and pulled a Victini EX FA from Plasma Storm...English pokemon products have become completely unreliable lately. I wouldn't be surprised if you got a box with half the packs or packs with not enough cards, or better yet cards from another card game entirely. haha

    How's this a card error? It sounds like more of TPCi's quality control.

    Does anyone know how common these are, or can you point me to somewhere with some more information on them? I don't know how to describe them so my Google searches are coming up useless. Here's an image:

    According to the eBay description it's a factory error.

    That is definitely not an error. What most likely happened was the seller found the card in their old binder and though it was an error, when it really is just some scratching.

    There's more than 1 listed though with the same mark... It's weird.

    So what appears to be a hole above the 1st Edition is a mark?

    It looks like the owner stored his or her cards poorly though it could be anything.

    Well he claims he's seen others besides his own, and it seems like I have too. He has two listings but uses only one picture. I'll ask him for a picture of both side by side and see what they look like. It's not just a hole in the ink though, there's also a white line above the hole, as if the machine somehow messed up when printing that corner of the border.

    Do not believe that seller. It is scratched nothing special. In fact, the same 'mark' could have even been intentially made on several bad condition copies of that card.

    I would normally agree, but the white line above the mark throws me off.

    The miscut on the Flygon is more noticeable in person, I have a few more cards like that...

    The Slowking is my treasure, not sure if I am gonna let it go or not because of how rare it is to see an early Japanese error like that.

    Although it won't be any time too soon, I do plan on doing some work for Bulbapedia and getting an errors section set up. When I do that, I shall also make contributions to this thread, especially seeing as I will be using it as one of my main resources.

    I have a question though:
    Should printer errors, that are 1 of a kind, be added to the database? Or only ones that have occurred to a handful of cards? I'm confused about this because if it were to have to be multiple cards, how do you tell the difference between just a random handful and a print run?

    It may be worth noting printer errors that were more common in specific sets.

    For example, the English Legendary Collection has frequent errors with the Energy symbols on RH cards.
