Cert verification error - Item Intentionally Removed from Database
I purchased a card on ebay from a large seller that deals with graded cards. I received the card and attempted to add it to my registry and was told it wasn't valid. I then did a cert check and it says the cert number was intentionally removed from the db. The same thing happened to the cert # right in front of it but the other cards around it (same sport, similar players/years) are all still there. I sent an email inquiry and haven't gotten a response yet and can't get through by phone. It seems very odd. Card looks good in the holder and appears to be authentic. I only have a few days to start a return and seller has already said they would take it. I've seen this before with the fake Jordan slabs but this is something I've never run into before.
Any suggestions? Have you had this issue before and gotten it resolved or should I just go with the return and try again?
