    any type is fine and for the size it depends on how much games you want to install

    64GB Sandisk Extreme UHS (3) any faster won't make a difference and a larger size will lead to issues since the max is 99,999 block in Sysnand.

    Just use the link I gave it's not worth the risk when you can get a real card from the link I posted for a few dollars more.

    Take a look around in stores near you. They can get quite cheap sometimes. (Especially on sales)

    Get one in a real physical shop. Then if you have problems with it you can take it back.

    If you buy off ebay, 90% of the time it is going to be fake and give you heaps of problems, then you'll have to go through the annoyance of filing a dispute/sending it back, waiting weeks to get a new one, then that new one might be fake too - why go through all that just to save a few dollars or pounds? Better to spend a little more and get things working right NOW.
