Logan Paul Just Bought A Case Of First-Edition Pokémon Cards For $3.5 Million
What's the biggest amount you've ever spent on a pack of Pokémon cards? Well, Logan Paul has just outshone us all, as the YouTuber and boxer has just spent an eye-watering amount of money on a case of first-edition Pokémon cards.
Logan Paul may be a controversial figure among the gaming community, along with his brother Jake. However, no one can deny his love for Pokémon. Some even consider him to be the reason for the resurgence of Pokémon Trading cards and their massive surge in value on the market. Paul himself has made no secret of the whopping amount of money he has spent on the trading cards.
Now, a gleeful Paul has shared how he has bought a whole case of first-edition Pokémon cards for a mind-blowing $3.5 million. If you happen to have a spare 3.5 big ones lying around, and you want to grab a case yourself, well, it's bad news because it will be no easy task.
What Pokémon Cards Did Logan Paul Buy For $3.5 Million?
On December 20, Paul shared that he had spent the millions on a "sealed & authenticated box of 1st Edition Pokémon cards", which contains 11 boxes of cards in total. As of writing, Paul hasn't shared with his fans which Pokémon he has now obtained through the purchase, but in a clip he shared on Twitter, he was clearly excited to start the search for some first-edition Charizards.
It's not entirely clear what Paul will do with the cards and whether he will use them for trading or go on to sell them and make his money back. If he does decide to part ways with some of the cards featuring his favourite Pokémon, Charizard, he could make his money back pretty handsomely as just one was sold for $311,800 on eBay.
Can I Find A Case Of First-Edition Pokémon Cards?
If you're planning on doing a Logan Paul and spending your millions on a case of Pokémon cards then sadly it's not great news as, apparently, the case that Paul bought is the 'only one of its kind in the world', as far as we know. This was claimed in the clip which Paul shared on Twitter when he opened his case in front of his friends like a giddy kid on Christmas morning.
So, for any veteran first-edition Pokémon card collectors out there, it may be worth having a deep search around the house because you may be sitting on a gold mine that Logan Paul would love to get his hands on.
