Default The experienced Ebay vintage graded buyer.....lend me your ear!

I purchased a card the other day with the following desrciption components (I won't list the card specifics or the seller because, as of now, my intention is not to assume that this person was and is dishonest):

Title"Year Brand Number Player PSA 8 NM-MT"

Description"Nice graded basketball card. shipping is free. No returns on graded cards"

Picture They attached a unique PSA certified card

A few days ago, since I have the saved search on my phone, I was prompted that another PSA 8 version of this card was available.
Same seller, same description and same exact PSA Cert # shown in the picture.

I have several thoughts/questions floating through my head, so I'll try to organize a few:

1. Was I a complete fool to associate the picture with the title and description (both of which lacked a cert #) as an accurate representation of the card I would receive? I guess just assumed that the seller, if they use a picture, especially for graded cards of unique numbering, are not allowed to show the "money beets", as Dwight Schrute would say.

2. To that end, do you guys who buy a lot of graded vintage ALWAYS ask ahead of time to have the seller confirm that the cert # depicted is what you will receive?

I guess I'm just looking for feedback and knowledge from experienced buyers on how to protect myself in the future.

If you don't get the card in the listing file a SNAD IF YOU DON'T LIKE the look of the card.

He may have 5 PSA8's and only 1 picture (with the nicest eye appeal)

His "No Returns" is BS unless he sends you the card with the matching cert.
