Internet celebrity Logan Paul made his WrestleMania debut on Saturday with a $6 million dollar Pokemon card, the world’s most expensive Pokemon card. When he entered the arena, the YouTube star and amateur fighter wore an extremely rare Pikachu graphics card, as well as Wolverine-inspired black and yellow clothing and shades of black.
On the official handle, WWE shared a clip of the 27-year-old YouTuber and professional wrestler-boxer entering the arena. As he walked into the arena, next to The Miz, you could see the Pokemon trading card swinging from his neck.

According to the Guinness World Records, Logan Paul “recently acquired a coveted PSA Grade 10 Pikachu Illustrator card in a record-breaking transaction worth $5,275,000”.
Earlier on Saturday, the YouTube personality had revealed his Wrestlemania gear on social media. He teased the Pokemon card while posting an image of the outfit he would wear to the event.

Logan Paul told the Guinness World Records that the Pikachu illustrator was “one of the rarest and most coveted Pokemon cards in the world.” He added: “In 1998, only 39 were given out to winners of the illustration competition, and this was a purchase for the only one in the world to get a perfect 10.”
This isn’t the first time Logan Paul has expressed his love for the Game Freak series. Before his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather last year, he had worn a Charizard card around his neck. It looked like a regular card at first glance, but closer inspection revealed it to be the first edition gem mint 10-graded Charizard. Beckett – who sets the standard for collectible prizes and sports cards – confirmed that the card was a Pristine 1999 Base 1st Edition Charizard Holo R. It is one of only three extant copies.
