Raging and cackling at the news that Logan Paul is ALLEGEDLY out $3.5 million dollars after Kotaku says he was bamboozled by some fake Pokémon cards. The fact he has disposable income like that is… too much. Pokémon cards can get expensive for rare ones and a few years ago, one Charizard card sold for almost half a million dollars. Welp, sadly Logan needs a better authenticator, or maybe a few more brain cells to tell him not to spend his whole Floyd Mayweather fight check on these fake ass Pokémon cards because as he opens the box for his YouTube viewers, he reveals he bought a box of G.I. Joe cards instead. Wow, not even Digimon? A total swindle!
In Logan’s video, he says that the box of cards was a set of “sealed & authenticated” first-edition Pokémon cards. If only I kept my OG Pokémon cards from the nineties. I could afford a house. Okay, maybe a studio apartment with a shared bathroom IN THIS MARKET. But Logan never got his hands on those allegedly first-edition cards, which were first authenticated by the Baseball Card Exchange because they were sealed and appeared not to be tampered with. After Logan’s viewers told him the cards were fake and he should get them double-checked, he went over to Chicago to get them checked by the Baseball Card Exchange one more time at the HQ. Shit went left from there:
In the vid, a BCE representative explains why they authenticated the unopened boxes, pointing to how the packages are sealed and how they appear not to have been untampered with.
Eventually, Paul pours a glass of wine and tells the BCE rep to open the boxes. And if you read the headline of this blog, you already know what happens next. After the initial unsealing, it becomes clear that the cases inside seem wrong. “Too puffy,” someone says. Once the ersatz Pokémon cases are unwrapped and opened, it becomes clear that Logan Paul just spent $3.5 million on a bunch of G.I. Joe cards…
“It’s just so sad for all parties involved,” said Paul after learning the news. “It’s sad for the Pokémon community, like how many fraudulent fucking things are out there. I’m grateful for the things I have now that are real.” Later he added, “We got fucked. End of story.”
If Logan’s video about this alleged Pokémon plight is something you want to click on, here you go:
Logan saying this is sad for all parties involved is a stretch. One person made $3.5 million on like $20 worth of G.I. Joe Card. They’re probably lit right now! But Logan is Mr. Fraudulent with his fake ass boxing matches and fake apologies for exploiting suicide victims, so this is just karma pulling a fast one. His brother, Jake Paul, who fakes entire weddings for clout, better not go shopping on AliExpress anymore if he doesn’t wanna get bamboozled next.
