Pokémon cards skyrocketed in value in 2021, to the point where finding cards or packs for sale in regular stores has become virtually impossible. There was even a race for the cards that McDonald’s presented at Happy Mills.
One of the most famous collectors of these messages is YouTuber Logan Paul. Some time ago, Logan Paul bragged about spending $3.5 million on what he believes is an unopened chest of the first issue of Pokémon cards. It has become the highest transaction value ever made with Pokémon cards, but unfortunately for YouTubers, the cards are fake.
Among the fans collecting cards, there were already suspicions that the chest was fake. Now, the suspicions are confirmed in a video posted by Logan Paul himself. The video documents the entire process, from the moment Logan Paul bought the cards until the cards were opened in the presence of a BBC (Baseball Card Exchange) representative, who confirmed that the packaging was authentic.
What Logan Paul found inside the pack, instead of the first version of Pokémon cards, were GI Joe cards. It remains to be seen if there will be any kind of refund from the baseball card exchange (for wrong certification) and/or the individual who sold you the card package.
