I never really bothered with shop photos until recently when I went to yahoo auctions and won this awesome yoko set and then started to get addicted to buying more and more. Well, anyway, I've been hearing the term " official " and " fake ", not much on yahoo auctions, but in the English speaking fandom.
I do know of Papa photos, they do not have the JE/Band logo thus they're not official... but how can you tell if a shop photo is fake or counterfit? Like how can you tell that the picture is a reprint or whatever?
I'm sorry if the question is confusing. Can anyone enlighten me on this?
