Definitely go through eBay. Sorry for any confusion. SNAD = seller not as described. So on your purchase history go to the item and hit contact seller then tick "I received an item that wasn't as described". There should then be a hyper link with "request a refund" and then for the reason select that it doesn't work/is defective.
I would say nothing about opening the cart. It's not relevant to the case but the seller is trying to use it as some kind of weasel option. I don't think they would succeed, but there is no reason to say you opened it or take pictures that would show the stickers are removed. If you take a picture I'd take one of the game in your Genesis with the console turned on and the game not working.
