Subject: Holos vs. Foils   PostPosted: Tue Oct 11, 2005 9:13 pm Reply with quote

Alright... I'm kind of new to this whole trading card thing, so pardon my ignorance. Can somebody please explain what is the difference between a holographic card and a foil card? For example, when you're registering cards, one of the rarities is "H", which I assume means "holo." Then there is also the option of checking a little "F" box, which I assume means "foil." Did I make a wrong assumption, or is there some mistake I've made? Please explain this to me as soon as you can...

Thanks

"Holo" cards refer to a card's rarity. At the bottom of the card by it's number, there will be a white dot with a black star in the circle. This indicates that is a holo. Now, some special cards like promos, etc. are not holo rarity, but they still have a foil-ized (shiny) picture. That's really the only difference.

I always thought that holo meant that the card is shiny.
Foil is when the card has the metallic title.

A card can be foil without being holo and viceversa.
That's what I always thought. And so have others so I really have little doubt that what I said is true.

I believe that holo and foil mean the same thing.
