Default eBay help and am I stuck?

Well, this may be a case of too good to be true. As most of you know I am serious financial issues and when I saw this piece I figured I could make a few bucks. There is no mention of reprint in title or the description. The only thing is please see pictures. I purchased the item without seeing the tiny little black reprint which is even semi-blurred-on the picture .

I have asked for a refund saying the description was misleading. What do you guys think ? Do I have a chance to get a refund and if he does not want to issue a refund will PayPal side with me?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you all!

Greed got the best of you here. They are clearly marked "reprint." You just jumped on the Buy it Now without being careful. Your fault, IMHO.

Yes. That's a really deceptive listing. I'd fight it and think you'd be successful.

Clearly marked and not even listed in description? I beg to differ about "greed" too.

Anyone else with a more understanding opinion?

For what it's worth, I've purchased something similar before (baseball card marked reprint). I returned it. If you're selling a reprint, list reprint in the title and description and don't waste people's time. Better yet, just don't sell reprints.

I don't know if you can fairly call it greed. He's trying to make a living buying and selling stuff. Buying something at a price you can flip it at doesn't make one greedy.

I agree.

"Reprint" should be in the title.

Ebay does not enforce it's "Misleading Title" rule.

So I'm out the 20 bucks so far doesn't look very good from what you guys of been telling me. So I guess that means I've got to buy it I'm gonna keep it and just maybe try to get my money back as a reprint. Was still waiting to hear something from the seller although I don't feel too confident anything good will come out of that
