This is something that has probably happened to all of us, getting duped by fake cards. Now, My question is, how do you know if a cards fake?

All I'm asking is for some side by side shots of real and fake cards, naming the things that are wrong with the fake cards, so that other people don't get duped by fake cards. Other people including me, myself and I

Some common things that prove a card being fake are:

-Extremely glossy look and waxy feel

-Smudged tm symbols

-Mispelling, clearly fake.

- Someone traded it to you for crappy cards. I'm sorry, but that friendly man doesn't really want your three dark magicians for a real Charizard Card.
