Logan Paul made his Wrestlemania debut by rocking a Pokemon card worth over $5 million dollars, breaking a world record. The YouTuber’s WWE outfit included the ultra-rare Pikachu Illustrator card. 

Logan Paul has never been shy about his love of the Game Freak series. The YouTuber has such a passion for the Pokemon Trading Card Game that he even wore a diamond-crusted Base Set Charizard card around his neck for his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather in 2021.

The popular influencer took things to the next level for his Wrestlemania debut when he revealed that he would be bringing the rarest Pokemon card to ever exist that’s worth over $5 million dollars.

Logan Paul bring Pokemon card worth $6 million to Wrestlemania 38

The YouTuber stunned Pokemon fans on April 2 when he revealed that he was going to be wearing a Pikachu Illustrator card to Wrestlemania 38. The 27-year-old teased the Pokemon card after posting an image of the outfit he would be wearing to the WWE Pay-Per-View.

The card is a big deal for fans of the Nintendo hobby as only 20 are believed to still exist. The 1998 CoroCoro promo broke records earlier in the year by becoming the most expensive TCG collectible after selling for $900k at auction in February.

Interestingly, the record-breaking collectible was only a PSA 7 rated item. With Logan Paul’s Pikachu Illustrator card necklace being a PSA 10, it would make the YouTuber the owner of the rarest Pokemon card to ever exist as there is only one in the world.

According to sports and betting insider Darren Rovell, the YouTuber also shattered the previous TCG record after paying $6 million for the rare Pokemon card in a recent deal. “Logan wearing his POP 1 Pikachu Illustrator PSA 10, which he bought for $6 million,” he tweeted out.

PSA’s own sales database backs this up, which shows a PSA GEM Mint 10 Pikachu Illustrator having recently sold for $6,000,000. Although it doesn’t list Logan Paul as the owner, it appears to many that he is wearing the collectible in his Wrestlemania photo.

Logan achieves Guinness World Record

On April 3, Guinness World Records confirmed that Paul had achieved his first world record title with the card that sold for $5,275,000, “the most expensive Pokémon card sold in a private auction.”

Speaking on being awarded the record after his WWE win, Logan said: “I applied for so many records and the fact that I finally got one after my first [WWE] win ever? I come back to the locker room and I get a second win right away?”

With the TCG collectible selling for over $5 million, that has certainly shattered the previous record of $900k. Which is mind-blowing, to say the least.
