I would think that would only be applicable when you're looking for a witness to attest to the immediate appearance of an item when it concerns an insurance claim with the USPS. Otherwise even if the card appears tampered the post office employee is no expert on the subject to stand as witness if indeed he did tamper with the holder or card. His best insurance would be before and after photos. If the card is tampered with and damaged beyond the point that you might be able to prove happened only on his end, then you may have a claim to refer a case of fraud to eBay and the postal inspectors.

I doubt the card will be damaged or tampered with, the guy just sounds like an idiot. His description of damage wouldn't substantiate any swapping or harm he could do to the card. If anything his description helps any claim you make that the card was received in good condition.

I bought a 51 Mantle in EX, a 206 Cobb green and red port., and a Goudey Ruth from a guy on Ebay about 6 yrs back. The scans were good so I shot him an offer. He accepted and when I went to sign for the cards I opened the package in front of the postal worker and the cards were all reprints that had been made to look like the scans which was easy to tell they were not close. Paypal and Ebay sided with the seller since I had no pics of the cards and had mailed them right back. Now I was out cards and money. When I called Paypal back and explained to them I opened the package in front of the postal worker and mailed them back right away and they could call and ask him. Needless to say that was what saved me.

I am sure there is a policy in effect saying that you can't use witnesses in fraud cases now per Ebay
