Logan Paul undoubtedly raised more than a few heads when he launched into his boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather, wearing a Shadowless Charizard 1st Edition draped 473 around his neck. In case you didn't know, there are only three of these cards, one of which sold for $369 last year! Yes, you read that right, $000 in freedom!
To Logan's credit, the card recently received a perfect BGS 10 score from ratings firm Beckett. Despite this, the real question is whether the card is really worth the million dollars, which it claims to be. If true, Logan Paul does indeed own the most expensive Pokémon card in the world.
What makes Logan's card so special?
Experts Say Logan's BGS 10 Pokémon Card Could Sell For Up To $500 USD; far from 000 million US dollars. Even if he sold it for $1, it would still earn him a profit, since he only bought the card for $500 (as if that was something we would mourn). Despite the card's rarity, Logan Paul argued that his card might be worth more considering it was featured during his fight with boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather. In an Instagram post, he said:

Ratings firm Beckett seems to agree, tweeting, "Pokémon fans and collectors were erupted when they noticed @LoganPaul's BGS Bling was a $1 million Pristine Charizard draped 473 around his neck. Oh, he also fought Floyd Mayweather.

Confusion with Pawn Stars Gary's Charizard Card
There has also been some controversy surrounding the card and its value, with claims that Logan purchased the card from Pawn Stars star Gary "King Pokemon" for $150 in October of last year. While we don't know how Logan came into possession of his prized Charizard card, the claim that his card was purchased from Gary is not true.
After making Gary an offer, Logan was quoted saying "the more [Gary] talked, the more I realized there was literally no way he was selling me his prized possession." My stupid money meant nothing to him. Gary later said he backtracked on his decision to sell and even turned down a commercial offer for a home worth $400. You can watch the interaction in one of Logan's videos, linked below.
