If you’ve been following the Pokémon trading card scene, you may have recently heard how YouTuber Logan Paul managed to get his hands on what appears to be “the only known sealed box of Pokémon cards from the First Edition Core Set.”
He forked out a whopping $3.5 million for the lot and it turned out he had been scammed. After concerns have been raised about the authenticity of the cards by the Pokémon TCG community, Paul decided to unpack the card packs with the help of some experts, only to find that they were full G.I. Joe trading cards.
Paul admits that the entire group, including the authenticators, were duped and shared the following final thoughts:
“I’m a super positive person bro and I will always look on the bright side and I try but it’s really hard. It’s so sad for all parties involved, it’s sad for Pokémon. community – for example, how many scam things are there? I’m grateful for what I have, which is real now, I imagine my Charizard in my head… something real, something real, worth a lot of money Damn bro, I just moved from eleven boxes of the first edition for five. We screwed up, end of story.”
