Logan Paul pays £2.6 million for Pokémon Base Set 1st Edition cards

What may be the last sealed 1st Edition Base Set for the Pokémon Trading Card Game has just been bought for $3.5 million.

That headline isn’t going to make any more sense the more we explain it, but YouTuber and professional boxer Logan Paul has spent $3.5 million (£2.64m) on a sealed box of Pokémon Base Set 1st Edition cards.

Paul often combines his obsession with the Pokémon Trading Card Game and gaudy expressions of wealth, having previously worn a mint condition Charizard card around his neck during his walkout for his match with Floyd Mayweather (an exhibition bout with no winner).

That card along was worth £415,000 but it’s possible – although not guaranteed – that the sealed base set could contain one or more new ones.
