The fact that the seller immediately sent you the "to be clear" email means he knew the description wasn't as straightforward as it should have been. Whenever I sell, I try to be as clear as possible about any flaws in a card rather than deal with negative feedback and the hassle of returns (and because it's the right thing to do).

In this particular case, the card looked like a reprint to me and I did notice the "reprint" mention in the details box, but I've been fooled a few times over the last few years as I've been completing 1956-1967 sets with mostly raw cards. Fake cards and less-than-honest descriptions are a growing problem on eBay, in my opinion.
