Umbreon Goldstar restauration + Auction

Hello dear collectors!

I have something special today, a POP 5 Umbreon Goldstar I managed to snag up from European PCM at quite cheap, but in horrible condition with sharpie smeared over it. Now, as someone who makes their living with altering and restoring trading cards, I couldn#t pass up the opportunity and decided to make it look pretty again - and offer it up for grabs to you guys.

Read more to see the before/after shots and the auction details!

Here's how it looked like before, the sharpie signature was from the Pokemon professor apparently, it had creases and water damae plus some ugly edgewear.

And here's the photos after restauration. It took me roughly eight hours and unfortunately I couldn't get rid of the creases completely, but a few paint layers cover them up quite a bit, the edgewear is almost gone, and the sharpie as well with the help of trusty alcohol, Q-Tips and acrylics.

It will never look 100% perfect but it does look much better now, and in a sleeve it easily passes as excellent.

Now, i have been debating with myself whether or not I want to let this beauty go but rent and cat food needs to be paid.
