For starters, the back is too light. The stock doesnt look right, and the card happens to be fairly well centered. All red flags

Generally when someone is selling an expensive card as “may be real”, it means “it is fake”.

Correct. Very recently an ebay seller misrepresented an item by saying someone was in the picture that wasn't, in the title. When I asked him about it he said he "hoped" the player was in there. After a few back and forths he refunded me before it shipped. I should have done more due diligence but he still misrepresented what he had.
