7.6 tons of fake Pokémon cards seized by customs

Pokemon cards are nothing new and one thing that has not changed at all has been the sheer lengths that people have gone to obtain them. Sometimes, this even involves making fake counterfeit Pokemon cards.

That fact combined with Pokemon card popularity levels being insanely high that means that the counterfeit Pokemon card market is, unfortunately, also growing as they like making profit off of the cards. The latest example comes from Yicai, a Chinese state-affiliated media outlet.

Destined for the Netherlands

Custom officials at Shanghai’s Pudong Airport have seized 20 boxes of counterfeit Pokemon cards that weigh, in total, 7.6 tons. Considering a card weighs next to nothing … this means a lot of cards. It is being reported that the cards were heading for the Netherlands.  The cards were being sent by a company from Qingdao, a major city located in the eastern part of the Shandong Province
