Content creator Logan Paul hosted his own celebration stream Pokémon Days February 27 and opened 36 rare, unopened first edition packs of Pokémon cards from the original Basic set.
The power was run in collaboration with leading marketplaces and memorabilia marketplace Goldin Auctions. Paul bid on the packages and opened them to fans or collectors who won the parties.
Paul is considered by many to be one of the biggest catalysts for the recent increase in popularity and value of vintage Pokémon TCG boxes, cards and packages after opening a Basic set box in front of 300,000 simultaneous viewers in October. Each of the packages he auctioned at Goldin averaged $ 39,206 per package, totaling more than $ 1
During the boxing break, Paul and Goldin Auctions founder Ken Goldin found two holographic Charizard cards, both of which are expected to be rated PSA GEM MT 10, which will have them valued at over $ 500,000 each. A first edition PSA GEM MT 10 Charizard is currently up for auction on Goldin for over $ 325,000 with five days left of the bid.
In total, Paul drew 12 holographic cards from the 36 opened packages, including Blastoise, Venusaur and Mewtwo. Here is a full overview of holo moves from the stream.
- To Charizard
- Three Chansey
- To Raichu
- And Alakazam
- And Venusaur
- And blastoise
- And Gyarados
- And Mewtwo
Depending on how each card ends up being ranked, these moves can be valued at over $ 1 million easily, according to PSA’s standard price guide for the set.
The Basic set The box that Paul auctioned off was one of six he documented to buy in a recent video in which he and his team claim to have spent around $ 2 million to obtain the much-sought-after Pokémon product. And considering the first edition boxes that could cost upwards of $ 400,000, depending on the condition and individual packages sold for thousands, that title was probably not clickbait.
Just a few days after the stream, Paul’s VOD has been viewed more than 3.2 million times.
