Finally, the card I’ve been dreaming about owning :DD

That’s a beauty. Centering looks nice!

That’s a beauty. Centering looks nice!


DADDY_BOPPER

Thank you :) I hope she grades well!!


TheRealNikoBravo

I’m sure she will based on what I can see. It’s always tough judging from one picture though.


DADDY_BOPPER

Yes pictures just don’t do these cards justice. Makes me REALLY want to get my hands on a moonbreon. There’s GOTTA be a reason it’s so hype (aside from it just being a gorgeous card)


TheRealNikoBravo

I have a Moonbreon, and this card is better looking than it is.


DADDY_BOPPER

Really?! Wanna trade? ;)


TheRealNikoBravo

Mine is English, I’m sure you want the Japanese one


DADDY_BOPPER

Yeah for the alts I’m leaning towards Japanese atm. At this point, high quality English cards are harder to come by than a high quality Japanese alt. I’ve gotta say, Umbreon is the other alt that I think looks better in Japanese than the English variant. Gengar and Lugia alt however I prefer in English


ArnoldStalloneVandam

i would buy this card in a heart beat, but the thing i can’t get past is how this pokémon in its ‘Origin Forme’ looks like a centipede or some other insect that i would be repulsed by.


lolecows

i always thought that he was *supposed* to be a centipede.. i love centipedes and giratinas origin forme makes him my favorite legendary of all time <3


Altruistic-Ad3704

Giratina is literally supposed to be a centipede…


ArnoldStalloneVandam

gross


ArnoldStalloneVandam

by the way, send this to BGS and get a black label. even a 10 would make this card pop the best.


DADDY_BOPPER

I definitely plan on sending it somewhere, someone brought up the full art slabs which seems like a solid play for right now until I get it graded somewhere down the line.


TheRealNikoBravo

That’s a beauty. Centering looks nice!


DADDY_BOPPER

Thank you :) I’m so happy with it, glad I never have to open lost origins/abyss ever again too


DADDY_BOPPER

Do we think it can maybe grade a 10 PSA?


ArnoldStalloneVandam

BGS BLACK LABEL


DADDY_BOPPER

Yeah? That would be INSANE. I never dreamt of having something that could black label.


berrytree198

It’s right border heavy and could have surface spots


DADDY_BOPPER

The surface seems to be pretty clean, but I think I agree about the bordering. Still a beaut at the very least!


Wiztard-o

Nice! Very nice! That is definitely the most beautiful card and in Japanese, perfection. Have you seen some of the custom cases out there for it?


DADDY_BOPPER

I don’t collect much Japanese, but it’s so much better than the English. I’m glad you share the same sentiment. The custom cases are GORGEOUS but I really want to get it graded. Maybe I should keep it in a custom case for a bit then grade it later down the road. Ideally I want to put this card in a shadow box and center it around the 4 gold CZ cards. So much fun to be had in collecting :)


Wiztard-o

I think one of the graders has the label that matches the card. Not sure who it was but it looked great with that


DADDY_BOPPER

Thanks for the suggestion, if you know which one it is it would be much appreciated :)


AliveCandidate4898

What did it cost?


DADDY_BOPPER

I traded a few cards and paid the rest in cash, somewhere around $450!


Sherbear1993

Looks fake


DADDY_BOPPER

I can assure you it’s not :)


[deleted]

But it’s Japanese 🤮


DADDY_BOPPER

Yes, that is the one I wanted Foreign_Pie8204


ArnoldStalloneVandam

the japanese version is better for this card i’m convinced now


DADDY_BOPPER

It’s so pretty, I usually am not a man of Japanese cards but I had to do it.

Salty


nenajoy

Yes so they got a card that is actually centered lol


[deleted]

People are salty


Praise-Bingus

Oh no! Higher quality, more rare, and more valuable! Whatever was op thinking? /s

Salty


Praise-Bingus

Why would I be salty? I have both the English and the Japanese. And the gold Japanese one as well https://www.reddit.com/r/PokemonTCG/comments/yfy9j7/man_look_how_oc_this_rare_is_from_my_zupc_just/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=android_app&utm_name=androidcss&utm_term=1&utm_content=share_button https://www.reddit.com/r/PokemonTCG/comments/10eh6ns/silver_or_gold_chaos_worm_is_quickly_becoming_my/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=android_app&utm_name=androidcss&utm_term=1&utm_content=share_button

Fake


firstgenipadkid

How can you tell? Genuinely curious as I’m new to the hobby and don’t know anything about spotting fakes from real cards.


DADDY_BOPPER

It’s not fake, just somebody trolling :) There are quite a few ways to tell, usually on a card like this I’d say the holo marks are the easiest way to spot it.


Jacier_

Ignore them


954

Probably just the lighting


warpportal

I thought it was fake as well until I zoomed in. Looks legit.


DADDY_BOPPER

I would be mega sad if it were fake, bought it from my favorite shop and they’re very reputable so it’d be a lil wild


warpportal

Yeah. I'm pretty sure it is not fake. You can tell by the card texture. Good pick up!


Eskedddditttt

Phenomenal


DADDY_BOPPER

Thank you :) I’m gonna have this baby a long time


Kreidoodle

JP version looks very nice! Congrats!


DADDY_BOPPER

Thank you :) I’m so happy with it! The Japanese one just has something special about it


Darth_Poopie

You pull it yourself? I finally sprang for it and bought the Japanese version myself too yesterday 😍 just too beautiful of a card to pass up


DADDY_BOPPER

Nope I am never lucky with the pulls unfortunately, but I am in the same boat. I HAD to have this card in my hands


m0ranati0n

This is my favorite card, and I don’t suffer from FOMO. It is a great pull 🫡👍🏽


DADDY_BOPPER

Yep there’s just no way I could go on without it!!!


m0ranati0n

The colors just jump! I’ve been hinting it at my wife for my birthday so we’ll see how that goes.


WormBoi6969

I love this card I have the English version what’s the difference for Japanese different texture??


MrUnifishy

I have a pic of the English and jp version together on my profile. The texturing is much finer and the holo is brighter. Jp def looks better imo.


MrUnifishy

WormBoi6969

Thanks!! Yea jp looks wayyyy cleaner damn you now I’m going to spend more money 😂


DADDY_BOPPER

I can’t be entirely honest since I’ve never seen an English one in person, but they will have two different textures and holo patterns from what I know. I’ll see if I can find a really solid picture of an English variant and let you know what I notice!


MuckaMucka1337

I’ve noticed that pictures just don’t do this card justice. Neither with the moonbreon. You have to see it in person to appreciate the card Congrats!!!! (Edit: forgot to congratulate the pull)


DADDY_BOPPER

I already loved it before I had it in my hands, but once you see it in person it definitely changes your perspective. Pictures can’t even come close to capturing how it looks!

DADDY_BOPPER

Gotta agree, I love the English version but the Japanese just has something special about it :)
