Logan Paul felt he’d struck gold when he spent $3.5 million on a 1st Edition Base Set of Pokemon cards in December 2021. He said it was “sealed and authenticated” at the time. That, however, was not the case. It was quite the situation at hand due to the number of millions of dollars that were being invested in it.
Collectors of Pokemon cards felt the package was a forgery. It was not only irregularly numbered but it was also certified by a small, inexperienced company. Logan investigated it and determined that it was a forgery. It was quite the watch on Youtube to see the fellow Youtubers reaction to being scammed hard.

It was instead stocked with G.I. Joe cards, rather than Pokemon cards. He had no idea they were false, and neither did the individual who sold them to him. He fully compensated Logan and promised to seek down the con artists who sold it to him. Logan made a YouTube video about it, causing others to believe he may have staged the whole thing for publicity. He disputed those charges during a recent episode of the IMPAULSIVE Podcast.
“I’ve noticed several remarks. They believe I was faking it. “They think it’s a hoax,” Logan explained. “However, that isn’t the case. It isn’t a sham at all. It was terribly depressing to be in that room that night. The intensity in the room was evident, as was the melancholy mood.

Logan has since discovered that there appears to be a large gang of people involved. However, he believes they made a mistake by defrauding him because their dirty business tactics have now been revealed to the public.
It hasn’t stopped him from winning big in other places, too. With former rival KSI, he introduced Prime Hydration, a new sports drink that sold out almost instantaneously.
