Ebay Authentication Thoughts
On EBay I recently purchased from 3 different sellers 3 different cards. 2 were graded and 1 was not. Each card was a 2018 issue and each cost over $350 which automatically had to be sent by the seller to the authenticators (PSA for the graded and CSG for the raw. The process went pretty well except for the delay in time received from when the seller shipped to the authenticator and the authenticator shipped to the buyer. My thought is this: How many 2018 cards are questionable for being authentic? My guess would be close to 0. So....it would seem to me that EBay should have an option for the buyer to bypass the authentication process and assume full responsibility for the purchase. The seller of the raw card wasn't aware of the process and was extremely upset at having to do this because it held up his payment for 10 days which I wasn't aware of. You guys have any thoughts about this?
