"Ebay has pieces from nearly every notable streetwear drop that's ever happened – whether in 1993 or 2023," said Garry Thaniel, global GM of sneakers and streetwear at Ebay. "We've heard loud and clear from our enthusiast community that they want to be able to come to Ebay to buy and sell apparel in the same seamless way that they can sneakers. With the launch of Authenticity Guarantee for streetwear, we're delivering on that ask.” This strategic move marks its sixth category to benefit from the program.
