Logan Paul Reveals How He Acquired A Record-Breaking $6 Million Pikachu Illustrator Pokémon Card
. 4 hours ago
Logan Paul has finally revealed how he acquired the record-breaking $6 million Pokemon PSA 10 Pikachu Illustrator card he carried in his WWE Wrestlemania debut.
On April 2, 2022, Logan Paul shocked Pokemon TCG collectors around the world when he made his first WWE appearance at Wrestlemania 38 wearing a Pikachu Illustrator card around his neck.
Only 20 of these cards are believed to exist worldwide, and Logan Paul is in possession of the only mint condition PSA 10 copy of the card.
After the event, he got the guinness world record for the most expensive TCG private buy at $5,275,000 – but how he came across such a rare card remained a mystery.
In a video uploaded on July 7, Paul finally revealed the steps he took to buy the record piece.
Logan Paul Reveals How He Bought Pikachu Illustrator
The purchase began in February 2021, when someone messaged Logan Paul on Instagram explaining that he had a very reputable person interested in selling the PSA 10 Pokemon Illustrator card.
Logan initially offered the mysterious person $4,000,000… but 24 hours later, the salesman declined his offer. Not having forgotten the card, four months later Logan contacted his friend Jeremy Padawer, who knew the seller and was able to follow up on the possible sale.
It wasn’t without its downside, however, as the seller added an additional two million dollars to the purchase price – but also offered Logan a second option. The YouTuber had to acquire a PSA 9 Pikachu Illustrator to redeem alongside $4,000,000 for the one-of-a-kind PSA 10.
After finding a collector in London who sold Logan the PSA 9, the YouTuber and his team traveled to Dubai where they met the man representing the mysterious collector who introduced Logan’s record-breaking Pikachu illustrator to the inside a custom ‘Maverick’ branded case that left the influencer speechless.
The card has gone from being a myth to being in the possession of one of the biggest influencers of recent times…as well as a part of WWE Wrestlemania history.
