Hi! I have a card that i found in my old collection. I cant find any information about it online, or find it in any database online. Mabye some of you have seen it before? i am 99% sure this is not a fake (who fakes trainer cards?...)

Its a first edition trainer card, called Yanyan, with a picture of a Umbreon on it. I hope some of you have any information about it. (check picture)


Thanks.

Hate to break it to you, but people do 100% fake Trainer cards. And this is 100% fake/counterfeit. The immediate tell for me is the font that "Yanyan" is in is completely incorrect. The font used has too much spacing between letters compared to the spacing on legitimate cards of the era. Another tell, there's never been a card named "Yanyan" released in English. Third tell is that it uses the Japanese Gym set logo, which was never used on any English cards, even erroneously. Fourthly, that art's a terrible and poorly done edit of an Umbreon on a background that's crappy even for a '90s card. And the fifth major tell, that effect uses card language not consistent with the language used in the card effects of the era.
