Here’s a story we can all universally love.
Getting scammed when you buy collector’s items definitely sucks, but if it happens to the very dislikable Logan Paul, let’s not lie, it’s awesome.
Especially when he spent $3.5 million on his collector’s items.
Logan Paul confirmed on Thursday that his Pokemon Trading cards were not authentic. Paul was prompted by PokéBeach to have them authenticated by the Baseball Card Exchange in Chicago, though unfortunately inside the boxes did not even contain Pokémon cards at all.
The packages contained G.I. Joe trading cards.
Wow, he really got duped.
The cards were bought by a fellow collector, Matt Allen, who initially purchased the cards at $2.7 million.
And the internet, of course, had quite the reaction, including Milwaukee Brewers star Christian Yelich.
Any Yelich rookie cards in there?! https://t.co/hwmD8LpD76

This is crazy. Sorry to see this, but I’m thankful you’re able to share this with so many people for transparency.
But first and foremost, get that money back 😅

You can’t spell Logan without an L.
Definitely a huge win for NFT’s.
