Default Anyone else have an issue with a certified auto not passing eBay authentication?

I recently bought a standard first Bowman auto on eBay that the seller shipped to me. Except somewhere in the process it apparently failed eBay's authentication guarantee and was returned to the seller. I was issued a refund.

The only reason I could think of was because the card wasn't PSA graded? Otherwise it was a certified auto. I doubt it was a reprint this was a 2022 card. Has this happened to anyone else?

Was this a raw card? If so, perhaps CSG thought the condition was misrepresented?

Yeah it was a raw card. Does eBay's guarantee go that deep? It only says it failed the authenticity guarantee but it doesn't have anymore detail.

On raw cards, supposedly they not only assure authenticity but check that the condition matches the description.

Oh wow. I didn't realize that. Maybe they did me a big favor then.

It could have been fake. Did it come from the New Jersey area? There are a ton of fake certified autos coming out of that area and has been for a long time.

This was a 2022 Bowman Chrome auto. It would be a weird card to reprint. Iím thinking maybe it was a grade thing. I didnít think that was part of the eBay review but might make the most sense.

Condition and misrepresentations are the reasons for many rejections. Card may have had a scratch or dent that doesn't show in the image, or they could have put something in the item description, like a different player's name.

Had nothing to do with the autograph. They donít authenticate autographs. Probably a mistake in the title. Misspellings and wrong descriptions and others said are the majority. Donít think too much into it. I swear Iíve seen this question on other forums the last couple days. Just buy another. Itís from a new product and Iím sure plenty are available.

For some reason I think they DO authenticate autographs. Anyone know the answer? I had one fail, but they said "description"

I have had several cards that had a Becket Autograph Authenticated sticker sealing the card in a card saver. All cards graded at PSA as anticipated with no issues; label had "authentic" regarding auto

Sometimes you buy something for a price you're happy with that you don't get to pay later just because you paid it once before. I think it's normal to wonder why this happened and necessary to understand what to avoid later. Nobody wants to be buying cards that get returned all the time.

Happened to me with a Pujols auto not that long ago and since I bid in a moment of auction frenzy, had a couple signed cards already and felt I overpaid for this one a bit, I was actually kind of happy it failed. I got a refund and the seller relisted and probably got more the 2nd time, because I still got a decent deal (even though I paid more than I wanted to).
