Default Need a reality check

Lost an eBay item today and 10 min later got a Second Chance Offer to buy it. My highest was not a crazy high bid for the card but was not insignificant ($900). Seller has very light feedback but nothing negative. But somehow seems sketchy. Honestly I was considering retracting my bid because the feedback was light and the story posted about how we acquired card from his dead grandfather seemed dubious.
On the other hand, if he flat out rips me off I assume I am covered by pay pal.

My instincts tell me to let it go. I was played. But its a cool card you dont see very often.

Weighing my options. Any thoughts?

Default let it go

a second chance offer coming in that quickly is a red flag... not worth the hassle in my opinion. Ignore the second chance...

Yeah, I guess that probably means my buddy was shilling it for me and ooops we accidentally won.

But I’d buy the card for that price tonight if it was at Heritage. My only hesitation.

If I wanted the card bad enough and it was hard to find I might still go for it. Or counter the second chance offer. But yea the timing looks pretty shady. You are covered by the eBay and PayPal guarantees, plus your credit card.

Oh the things we do for cardboard.

I've been in your position many times and have both passed and accepted.

It's never an easy call though either way.

This is what it sounds like to me as well.

I just messaged him and said what was up with the quick second offer. Told me that the winner had a problem with his PayPal account and PayPal suspended it. “His loss.” Sounds like utter bs.
BUT he sent me a new picture of him supposedly holding the card.
I’m about 70% percent let it go, 30% go for it.
