Following his Pokémon hunting adventures from last year, where he spent a massive amount of money on a PSA 10 Christ card, Logan Paul, this time, has splurged a whopping amount of $3,500,000 million USD on an “authenticated box of 1st Edition Pokémon card.”

What is more interesting is the box could contain the rarest card and is probably the “only known sealed case of First Edition Pokémon boxes in the world.”
