Logan Paul owns $5.275 million PSA 10 Pikachu Illustrator!

The world record for a Pokemon Trading Card has been obliterated after Logan Paul revealed the only PSA 10 Pikachu Illustrator in the world as he wore the card round his neck for WWE Wrestlemania. Now further information has surfaced around the price he paid to acquire the card, a Guinness World Record $5.275 million.

In a statement on their official website, Guinness World Records revealed that Logan Paul purchased the PSA 10 Pikachu Illustrator on 22nd July 2021 for an incredible $4 million cash alongside a PSA 9 Pikachu Illustrator purchased for $1.275 million.

just last month a PSA 7 Pikachu Illustrator broke the world record for a public sale when it sold for $720,000 at auction via Goldin. This private sale eclipses that figure.

Distributed as a prize in 1998 for winners of the Japanese magazine CoroCoro’s illustration contest there are reportedly only 39 cards in circulation. Looking at the PSA population report on this particular card highlights the scarcity and rarity of the “Holy Grail” of Japanese Pokémon cards. There are currently 24 graded variants, only one a PSA 10. 

What does this mean for the future of the Pokemon TCG hobby?
