Why 50% of the sandbox images are broken images when using "search API"

i'm using :

https://api.sandbox.ebay.com/buy/browse/v1/item_summary/search?q=<text>

i get a list of items, in item.image.imageUrl there is an image source,

50% of the list items looks like this image:

https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/1b0AAOSwsPBfz-Pf/s-l225.jpg

some of them looks good as expected, for example:

https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/UUEAAOSw8gVX6V2r/s-l225.jpg

Is there a property/attribute in the item object that can be use to filter out the bad images upon it?

Hi @tomersss222,

If a user lists the item using any invalid self hosted URL or any expired eBay Picture Service URL then listing will be uploaded with broken image and you will not be able to see or fetch the image.
