Recently, Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter found herself amid controversy. Many fans of the NoPixel server ridiculed her for wanting to sell an extremely rare and tribute-paying trading card in exchange for money.

Arsenal and spAnser developed the NoPixel digital trading card game on May 23, 2021. In this game, players can open a variety of packs including civilian, crew, and government booster packs. A special ‘Boe Jangles’ collectible card was added into the game in memory of the late Kenny ‘Blue622’ Tancredi, who was a crucial founding member of the server.

Valkyrae sets fans into an uproar over her reaction to packing a rare trading card

According to the stats, the odds of getting this card are  1 in 10,000. Thus, fans were understandably mad when Valkyrae’s first reaction to getting it was, “What you guys, Boe, I got Boe’s card, this is like the rarest card ever… wait how much does this go for?

Since Valkyrae is already quite an affluent streamer, it was surprising to see her care so much about the monetary worth of a card with such sentimental value. However, Rae later clarified that her reaction was due to the excitement over getting a rare card and that she planned to sell the card to someone who was close to Blue622.

She further explains, “I was under the impression that I would sell cards, but I don’t know what to do because people are mad at me for wanting to sell the card… but I figured I’d sell it to someone that it would have sentimental value to.” 

Fellow streamer Ramee also stood up for Rae. He revealed a tweet from the creator of the card which stated that Valkyrae’s intentions were not to extort money. Especially from someone with a sentimental connection to the card. On the other hand, she wanted to ensure that somebody close to him possessed the card.
