In a recent Instagram post (where you can watch him open various packs from the base box), he said, “When I was a kid I absolutely loved Pokémon but I couldn’t afford the cards. I even remember trying to swap food stamps for theirs and now as an adult who saved every penny he earned, being able to enjoy something that I love from childhood now as a kid. adult man, it’s like redeeming a piece of something I never could have had, it’s not about the material about the experience. ”
Earlier this year, Logic announced that it would officially retire from rap, instead signing an exclusive deal to become a Twitch streamer.
The first edition Charizard card, however, is not the most expensive Pokémon card ever sold. That record is still held by a Japanese “Illustrator Pikachu” card which broke its own record earlier this year when it sold for over $ 233,000.For more information on Pokemon Trading Card Games, find out who won the recent Pokemon Online World Championship.
