How mint is Near Mint?

Lately I've been selling duplicates of my cards on ebay, but I've gotten pretty worried about what and what not to label as near mint! Especially with holos, there will be tiny imperfections like scratches that can only be seen under a light. Are scratches like these too much to label a card as NM?

Like here near the light shown on the card you can see some tiny scratches, and a tiny bit of wear on the edge (its pretty hard to spot in the picture)

Thank you for any input, I just want to make sure I don't mislead anyone when selling ^^;

card file and Elesa's Bw2 ver. merch question

Thinking of purchasing this card file but I'm curious about the dimensions, the material of the cover, and how many cards fit per page. I was wondering if anyone had this one or a similar card file?
The picture I found was really distorted so I can't really tell, but I'm guessing it's size B3...? (a clear file is size A4)
I'm guessing these Pokemon card files are made by the same company or with the same model so even if the image printed is different the actual file is probably similar to those others might own? Sort of like deck boxes/clear files, etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! m(_ _)m

Also curious if there's any other merch for Elesa's Bw2 version other than this, the deck box/card protectors and the clear file?
I know there's lots for her blondie version but I'm a fan of her BW2 outfit ^^;.

And to make this post less boring (?) here are some avatars I've recently drawn ^^;
They're free to use~ please just put credit to prnzs in the userpic info if you do.

Thanks for looking~ m(_ _)m

EMS Oversea shipping? (Fromjapan)

Hey this is my first time using from japan and i just the charge 2 form. I was told that If i chose "unidentified" as my carrier option they will sent me all the different options that i had to ship my package along with their shipping proce.

however they only gave me this option. I need my package to be delivered the fastest way and I need it to have a tracking number. It is expensive stuff and I don't want to risk it so insurance is needed as well.

On the charge 2 form it says: "Oversea shipping"

And it doesn't mention anything about tracking. It just says that and EMS. Will this have a tracking number? How long will it take to get to me? I am in Miami FL United States. how much will it cover if I choose insurance?

Ugh I feel so lost and worries /:
I sent an email to FJ but they take forever to answer...

EDIT: When I go to my charge 2 form it says:
EMS PRICE >> insured ( ¥150 Coverage for damage ¥ANOTHER PRICE )

I'm not understanding what 150 coverage for damage means ( I am guessing that's how much it will cover? Or that's how much insurance is?

Also I see it says that I can change the price that appears on the customs, do you guys change this? I bought expensive stuff I'm worried that if I leave it as default it gets "lost" or stolen. And It says that if its too little it can get stopped by customs... I am a paranoid person when it comes to packages :(

cheren worried :(



PKMNCollectors, in light of how many of you use this shop and that it is run by some members of this community, I felt it important enough to post here that you should NEVER buy from this shop and immediately open a dispute with paypal if you have any pending orders.

PokedollUSA has been stealing from and ripping off customers since February, and the owner, pokabubu, has opted to keep customers' money, not reply to their inquiries, and was also caught deleting negative comments left about the situation. You can see examples of some of the complaints on the link above. Currently, the site is STILL OPEN and is STILL TAKING MONEY FOR GOODS and unknowing customers are buying from them without seeing the complaints on Facebook. Thanks to a responsible person with admin access the site luckily HAS been closed for orders.

In the future, instead of a shop with a shady offer of having items shipped from Japan to themselves and then to the customer, I recommend using services that send customers their items directly from Japan without this middle step. Long-standing, reputable shops like Pokevault offer professional, fast service and a huge variety of stock, and using deputy services you can buy items yourself right off Yahoo!Japan, Amazon Japan and Rakuten, to name a few. Please avoid shops like PokedollUSA that add in a pointless extra shipping step and extra weeks of waiting for your items, when there are much easier and more trustworthy ways.

Until next time, and good luck to all involved.

(Note: Please only comment if you have information, a testimonial or something else helpful, comments made simply to slander the user/shop or gossip about this topic are not necessary. Thank you.)

*strums fingers on the desk*

Hrm. I bought a few plushies from hobby_japan almost three weeks ago now and they've still not arrived. >.< I contacted the seller last week and they told me not to worry just yet, it sometimes takes this long, but I've never had to wait this long for something from Japan before. I know they're trustworthy sellers though. Has anyone else ever used them? If so, how long did it take your packages to arrive? I'm starting to get worried that they'll never show up now. D:

Also I'm dyinggg to pre-order the Charizard Y plushie from Sunyshore but I don't get paid until the 22nd nooooo. I'll just have to wait. D:

Edit: Psh, obviously a day after I post this is when they decide to turn up! xD They've arrived in the UK... but I've been attacked by customs. ): I get to pay them online and then they'll arrive within the next two days, woo! Expect pics! xD

A Couple Of Plush Questions

First question! I got these 2 Pokedolls in a lot with a canvas chikorita for only 20 dollars on ebay, and i was wondering if they are legit or not! They are in very loved condition and appear pretty old. I don't see pichu pokedolls for sale very often and i really wanted one so i thought i'd buy it before asking questions since it was such a good deal. c:


And then the jirachi one:


And the last question: Does anyone have any info on this pikachu? It's missing a red cheek and has no stripes, but i absolutely fell in love with his little face! He was only 99 cents and i scooped him up immediately. Is he an old bootleg or something? Either way he is a treasure in my collection. He is so cute and derpy and just... eeeep!


Golden Pokeball?

A friend of mine told me that they have a Golden Pokeball, but do not know where it is. We have searched everywhere on the internet about a golden pokeball and all we find are the golden cards. Does anyone have any info about a Golden Pokeball?  
Vulpix PD
