The auction was managed by Iconic Auctions on October 9, 2020. The final auction came in at $ 183,812.00 before the 20% buyer’s premium was added, bringing the all-time high of 220,574. Logic is no stranger to Pokémon cards, in fact, he recently bought a $ 23,000 basic box in which he proceeded to shoot (yes, you guessed it) a holographic Charizard card, although this one is not of the ultra-rare first edition type.

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.
