BBCE came up with an opinion on this entire matter. Their team wrote, “In March 2021, we were asked to provide our good-faith opinion and verify that the Pokémon case had not been previously opened or tampered with. We evaluated it and, in our opinion, the case was in its original state. This past Saturday, we opened that case to verify our opinion.”

They further added, “sealed cases going forward. We have also decided to halt the review of Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh! cases or boxes until we assess and revise our processes to avoid this happening in the future.” 

‘The Maverick’ always remains open about his interests and likings. As a result, Paul did not think twice about spending an exuberant amount to buy his favorite Pokemon cards.
