MIZKIF REVEALS HE WASTED ALMOST $100,000 ON POKEMON CARDS

HOW IT WORKS.

Grading companies such as PSA, CGC, or Beckett largely determine the value of a Pokemon card.

The difference between a nine and a 10, for instance, can sometimes even be hundreds of thousands.

Twitch streamer Mizkif learned this lesson the hard way when his massive collection got much lower scores than he expected.

“I lost all my actual money….” the streamer said in disbelief after 100 of his cards came back with grades ranging from eight to nine.

“I spent $100,000 on these cards,” he told his streaming partner and Nick ‘Nmplol’ Polom.

Nick, this is worth, maybe $3,000 in total. And you know what, Nick, I spent $3,000 to get these graded.

Opening Pokemon cards is literally doubling gambling, that’s all it is. You’re gambling the card getting it, and you are gambling again that it’s graded a 10. It’s the worst gamble of your life.

“It’s REALLY hard to get a 10. I didn’t realize how hard it was!” the Smash pro explained.
