Logan Paul wore a shiny Charizard Pokémon card around his neck as he entered the ring for his exhibition fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Sunday in Miami. He clearly made sure to show it off numerous times.
Kotaku notes that the card is actually a first-edition, gem mint 10-graded Charizard that has significantly increased in value since Paul acquired it for $150,000 last year.
After the eight-round fight, Paul spoke to reporters about it and explained why is worth so much.
“It’s a BGS 10 Charizard, first edition Charizard. It’s one of three in the world. It is my prized possession. Ever since I got this graded at a ten, the momentum in my life has been crazy. It’s my good luck charm,” he commented. “This is the card I walked out [with] to the Floyd Mayweather fight. This is a million-dollar card.”
Pokemon cards, like various other trading cards, have skyrocketed in value in recent years. Paul has purchased several, even showing off his PSA10 holographic Charizard, Blastoise and Venusaur cards on Instagram just last month.
