Default Grammatical argument

When using the curse "Warranty Expires," can a person discard any CARD that isn't a one-shot item or any ITEM that isn't a one-shot item.
It seems the lack of comma makes some think any card will work but the capitalization of item makes others feel the latter.

Thank you for reading :)

I had a 5 minute argument with my brother in law.

He said it could be read as he can discard any card that isn't a one-shot-item, which includes race/class cards. I told him no and that it had to be an item that isn't a one-shot-item. I also pulled the I am the owner of them game "trump card" and he went along with it but in the end he still disagreed with me!

My husband also said it can interpret both ways due to the grammatical error.
Can we have some clarity from some moderators? Lol
