The question is in regards to the Pikachu and Charizard metal cards coming out in the ultra premium collection

https://www.pokebeach.com/2021/10/metal-charizard-and-pikachu-cards-from-celebrations-revealed

Are these "cards"?  They can't be played....they're made of metal....would they fit in the holder?  Are they going to be able to submitted to be graded?

While I cannot say for sure until we have some in hand, I would say that we probably can grade these. It just depends how they fit in the holder.

Thank you,

Paul

That's great news.

I am wondering, has there been any "stress" test on these? I have yet to have the 'card' in my hand but from some videos people are posting, there's some "flaking" where the print is coming off the edges fresh out the box.

Would slabbing these kinds of cards accelerate the edge wear for these metal cards? I hope you guys gave it a very good (like machine) shake in there to see if the wear warrants a soft protection inside.

Another question:

For the Non Metal Gold Cards(Pikachu and Pokeball), would you happen to know if these are a type of "Gold Plated" cardboard or usual Gold Print one would find on any Pokemon Gold style card?

I can't seem to find the card when I type in charizard gold plate anniversary  in the submission form.
