  1. Hi all,

    I'm considering purchasing a pre-loved YSL shoulder bag that doesn't come with a care card. I know that Chanel values its authenticity card greatly, and I was wondering if this is the case for YSL Saint Laurent bags. Is not having a care card an initial sign of a replica handbag?
  2. My YSL wallet on chain didn't come with an authenticity card and I got it from a boutique. I'm guessing it's common with ysl?
  3. My SDJ which I purchased from a nearby SL store did come with the authenticity card. However, it is a flimsy piece of cardboard paper and does not have the substance nor the importance of Chanel's authenticity cards.

  4. This is what YSL said when I asked about an authenticity card:

    "To answer your original question, our handbags no longer come with an authenticity card, as they were being duplicated and included in counterfeit merchandise."

    I purchased a clutch at the boutique last month and it did not come with one.
