Did I get burned?

Recommended Posts

So last night on a whim I decided to pick up this sealed copy of Virtual Boy Wario Land.
 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/SEALED-Nintendo-video-Game-cartridge-Virtual-Boy-Wario-Land-/392679004007?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&type=19_25050030004_55.0.2883.59_u_hp_sp&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=SXAqx82MD5APkycw9Ji3d1BeU0I%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc

This is the first old sealed game I've ever bought so I wasn't really thinking to look for this stuff but this morning I was looking at the listing again and noticed in the description it said
"Sealed in shrink.  See photo. Come as shown in the photos." which I thought sounded kind of fishy. Then I start looking at other listing of sealed VB Warios and I notice they all have this seam on the back of their seals and the one I bought doesn't.

I'm not even sure why I'm asking because I'm already pretty sure I just paid way too much for a resealed copy but I just wanted to check with the experts.

Did I get burned?

Speaking from an eBay point of view, not an authentic seal point of view, it's listed as 'Brand New' and they have their return policy set to returns accepted, so if you're not happy with it you're out at most the cost of shipping. Might be worth trying to cancel now before it ships to save buyer and seller trouble.

I have had this problem before where a seller claimed something was brand new, but it was actually a reseal. I asked them to cancel the sale and they did. They know they will lose an eBay dispute, so it's not usually worth their time to fight you.

Looks like a reseal but with free returns you have nothing to worry about.  Someone with that high of feedback probably has it to auto accept the return if you file it anyway.  No issue other than hassle.

Also looks like he opened it and relisted as CIB, so he may not have known it was a reseal.

Yep, he messaged me thanking me for pointing it out. I guess it's a happy ending all around. :classic_laugh:
