The long saga of a box of first edition base set Pokemon cards has come to its inevitable conclusion. This box of cards has been reported on for years, only to come into the hands of influencer Logan Paul in December 2021. This specific box has long been rumored to be fake, even persuasively so, but without opening the box there was no firm proof. That’s now changed, as Paul has confirmed that the box has been opened. His $3.5 million box of Pokemon cards is now confirmed to have been a scam.
