get_item_by_legacy_id returning 11003, but items exist on ebay site

Recently, a lot of requests using get_item_by_legacy_id are returning as not found, but the item shows up in the browser with the url:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/{legacy-id}

Is there a reason for this? Is the API having some issues?

Here is a list of legacy ids which are not found with the Browse API:
295088022604
134169560344
155071782145
354155464537
384995637308
175347610780

I think it's related to a category. I have the same issue: the items from the "Trading Cards" category return 11003 (The specified legacy item Id was not found).

If I try another item from a different category, then it works as expected. So that confirms the issue is on eBay side somewhere. I noticed this issue since yesterday and it's still there.

The API Explorer gives the same error.

Thanks for verifying the issue. I can find some working examples in the "Sports Trading Card Singles" category. But, most of the items in that category I've tried have given 11003. So, maybe the issue is occurring more in that category than others?

That's possible too. I did not perform any deeper research on that. I just happen to get a couple items from the same category and I just picked a few more random ones from the same category to check my idea and all returned 11003.

Anyway, no matter if the issue is on most items in that category or all items that does not help much. The issue is there and it appears something on eBay side.

I hope someone from eBay will take a look and that will be resolved quickly.

I think this is fixed now. I just checked a few of my items and a few of your items from your original list. All worked.

Nice.
