Logan paul just found out that his unopened first edition Pokémon card game – which he paid $ 3.5 MILLION to obtain – is a big and big fake … revealing the box was full of useless GI Joe cards.
Rumors had been circulating for weeks about purchasing LPs … with experts skeptical of the authenticity of the cards inside the box.
Paul, 26, and his friend / famous card collector Bolillo Lajan San met the Baseball Card Exchange in Chicago hoping to prove once and for all that his purchase was a good investment … but instead he got REALLY bad news.
While the outer packaging looked legitimate, it was once the box was opened that Paul and the gang realized they had been ripped off.
“Oh my God, brother,” Paul cried when the first box was opened. “GI JOE ?? GI JOE?!?! It could have been something else.”
One of the authenticators said it best… adding, “This is the biggest fraud in all of Pokémon history.”
It’s a more than heartbreaking loss for Paul – if the cards had been real, he could have made a fortune with what was inside the box.
“I’m a super positive person, my brother,” Logan said. “And, I’ll always be the one to see the bright side, and I try, but it’s very difficult.”
On the safe side, Paul has always a first edition of the “Shadowless” Charizard card – which he says is now worth over a million – as well as 5 other Pokémon card packs from the first edition.
“Sad for the Pokémon community, like, how many scam things are there?” he added. “I’m grateful for the things that I have that are real now. For example, I imagine my Charizard in my head like, ‘Oh my god, damn it, something real, something worth a lot of. money that’s true! “
“We screwed up. End of story.”
