Good thing, because I was worried ....

.... that my $21 PSA graded card purchase wasn't authentic.

    I would not tell Carlos he isn't the real deal. He already doesn't look happy.

    Did that go through the authenticity guarantee really ??

    And it will be expensive. It isn't going to be like $20 either. On a graded $2000 item i think it's going to be $50-$100. I believe PSA sent the item I had sold FEDEX to the buyer.

    If you feel that you should want to authenticate the cardboard eBay holder or if you simply want the peace of mind that comes with really knowing for a fact that eBay did in fact authenticate what PSA has already deemed authentic, I actually started a small business that authenticates authenticators and it is called Authentic All American Authenticators of Authenticity of America.

    AAAAAA, for short.

    (I mean, really, eBay…)

    Is this something the seller does just to prevent returns?

    Maybe they are beta testers for the Vault service, and this is what you get when a card is sold from the vault...

    It would seem so. A derivation of the phrase "follow the money". Except they are following the money trail back to the collectors where the money is, to relieve them of it.

    It's nice to have fun with this, but clearly fake or at least questionable PSA holders are common enough on eBay that they don't want to have to deal with questionable returns.

    I would think a lot of sellers would be relieved not to have to worry about SNAD. Can't imagine it would be allowed after it has the eBay seal of approval.

    I totally agree here. I am excited about what eBay has been doing to clean up the shenanigans that have been going on for ages on their platform. I feel bad for the innocent collectors who might have bought PSA Graded (or other TPG) cards only to find out down the road that they are fake slabs.

    I'm even more excited about the new eBay Vault launching next month. The idea of the vault works for me as both a Buyer and Seller. I can't wait.

    I’m ok if they check every item sold by that seller. Doesn’t have the best of a rep when it comes to people dumping bad stuff on the market.

    Carlos lost a thumb in a military related accident while serving in the US Marines.

    Yep

    I thought graded cards were valued over $2000 for this service. Was this just some error in the process ??

    So a buyer buys a graded card, seller ships. Buyer now has to wait how long before he actually sees the card? When ebay starts authenticating every card will we see bsckups like PSA?

    I've heard it only adds a few extra days to the process. BTW, eBay is not authenticating the graded slabs. PSA is authenticating the graded slabs.

    Seller ships to PSA.
    PSA Verifies the slab is legit
    PSA ships to buyer

    In the future, if you want to use the eBay Vault, the entire process can be INSTANT.

    Seller sells directly from the Seller's eBay Vault
    Buyer Pays and elects to keep it in the Buyer's eBay Vault
    As soon as the Buyer pays, the deal is complete and ownership transfers from Seller Vault to Buyer Vault in seconds.

    I was just being silly, myself.

    Any steps to fight fraud are good steps though I too concede it is a cost will eventually filter down to the buyers, which stinks.
