If youre a Pokémon investor with 6 boxes would you really sell the case and remove all of your exposure or would you slowly sell off the boxes?

Easy sub, thank you for the content. Would be interesting to see it opened up and confirmed. If I were buying, I would rather pay a premium to have it opened up and authenticated by Leon, King Pokémon, Rev, or TCA tbh. Don’t think it would lose value if it were opened up and authenticated that way if it ended up being real.

Great work mate and well put together video . I am not an expert in this field but bearing in mind anyone with the means to buy this case in the first place must have some knowledge in the Pokemon field. How did so many people sell this on and even buy this in the first place given all the red flags which are jumping out at you. It's ridiculous, straight up fraud. Furthermore, how did a TC company verify this with their stamp of approval. If they actually did their job and looked into this like you have done they would clearly see how this a scam. How does an old cardboard box even = certified pokemon first edition content inside also? crazy.

I love these informative videos. It's wild that that baseball card company seemingly didn't try to track the box's origins at all? Like, maybe I'm an idiot, but I thought the big fuck-off ID numbers on the box were supposed to convey information.

If it was at an estate sale I'm pretty sure for tax purposes you have to list the items being sold and their estimated values... I doubt this box would've been laying under a table with a bunch of other Pokemon cards not to mention the family didn't open it to make sure it wasn't something important of his they might wanna keep? Nah I don't believe this at all I wanna see an obituary for the dead grandson and a listing for the estate sale itself.
gogglespisano24 4 meses atrás
Even though this story is fake, I know plenty of folks who have "estate sales" but they aren't really. It is just "buy my dead relative's stuff because I need to get rid of it"

people don't idc what they say I know plenty of people who run estate sales and don't report whet they are selling. it's too hard to track items from estate sales rarely they don't report unless it's a big operation and they are a buisness most people just sell and take a percatage and don't report just like at antique shows I do them every month I might sell 2 grand at a show but I don't report what I sell.

​@Rattle Pokemon Interesting point, however If I died, I doubt that the executor of my estate is going to care or understand the value of collectible cards I have, beyond sports cards, which they likely will think of as being valuable from stories they heard of their parents having their Mickey Mantle cards thrown out when they went to college. They most likely would list them as a lot or take them to a TCG shop to sell, UNLESS i have printed instructions/valuation information that lets them know they are valuable. Most people that aren't in the hobby have any idea about these things. Now, if I have gold, silver, sterling silverware, or old baseball cards, they would likely recognize those have some value that should be investigated. My parents had a large lot of my revised/unlimited MTG cards put loose in a shoebox, and fortunately, they weren't damaged. I did not even know they were still at their house, until I picked up they hobby again after college.

In all honesty this couldn't have happened to a better person, Logan wasn't going to be losing money on this regardless of what was going to happen because the money exchanged for this was all probably out of his BRvid budget and the attention he's got from it along with the views has most likely already made up for it. Imagine if this happened to someone who was actually risking something on it instead? Imagine if it got sold off another 2 or 3 times and then got to someone who actually needed the money from it only to get a big egg in their face. Sometimes good things happen in the weirdest ways. On a separate note, to anyone wondering Logan has already gotten his money back from the direct seller so not only did he make money back from this he also made money on the whole experience as well, the man stays winning and honestly good for him.
Ja LE 3 meses atrás
He actually lost 700k but yes he’ll soon earn 700k back just small tax charge to him lol
Matt 4 meses atrás
Yeah Logan had no risk in this deal because of his relationship with his seller and his overall savy. Unfortunately for his friend, he’s currently the one out 2.7 million and even though we know he bought it from the card show guys, it’s no guarantee they still have all his money to refund him. They also got scammed into buying a worthless box. So this definitely isn’t a victimless crime and this needs to be handled properly. The original seller if they can track him it down deserves to go to jail for this.

I owned 3 original 1st ed boxes years ago. Never owned a case. I've also sold high-end cards previously on ebay. A few comments... we have seen restocking fees on ebay -- some sellers were still allowed to charge it, and other sellers have questioned ebay customer service how that happens. But, it's never a low-volume seller like that one. Also, while I agree that most sellers would prefer to have the cards picked up directly, there was actually a discussion on the community boards about whether that was wise. There was an incident where the person picked up, but without a third-party carrier to make the delivery, there was no proof the item was handed directly to the actual buyer. I think there may be a QR code now that can be scanned at the point of exchange, but I don't know for sure if that is in place and if it works. Just wanted to help with that info.

This then confirms eBay and any case would be in favour immediately

I met the guy who sold this Pokemon first edition box to the guy who sold it to Logan Paul at the Collect-A-Con in Dallas. He sold a first edition Charizard to SashaT the sports card collector. The guy gave me bad vibes when I met him like something was just not right about him... I really hope Logan figures this all out! Btw I would reach out to SashaT he might be able to help bring more clarity to this seeing as he did business with them as well. Good luck!

Is it 100% fact that bbce did not open the case, see the boxes with their own eyes, then re-wrap the box as Authenticated? Thats what most people, including myself, I believe thought happened. But if they didn’t open it and just wrapped over the “stop” wrap, then yeah that doesn’t say a whole lot.

Those eBay terms and conditions actually do apply. One time I sold a computer and the customer said it was broken and filed a case on me. In the case she said she had gone to a repair shop and had the computer opened and looked at. Even though the computer most likely got damaged during shipping eBay did not give my buyer a refund because the item would be returned in a condition it was not sent in.
SilverFromJohto Pokémon
I sure hope he didn’t grab the case from silly ol’ collectibles guru 😆 but seriously, I’m not sure this box you’re displaying is the same that Logan bought but as a buyer I would want a personal deal done. It avoids fees, get a hands on deal with what you’re getting and I would immediately open the sealed case to ensure that all is legit inside. Screw the case in my opinion, I can easily replace that. The boxes however, the legitimacy matters more and I would be extremely aware of this entire situation because it involves BIG money. This is a huge transaction and it’s to be treated in a professional manner.

Given the history of the buyer, how likely is it that the buyer is the scammer? Somehow repackages with GI Joe cards and the BBCE gets blame and someone pays up. Who made money on this in the end? The buyer acted really weird in the unboxing vid. I need to know more of the chronology but I would never trust that buyer with anything. And 3.5M is a lot to anyone.

Has anyone considered that this box could be one of those infamous changed 1st ed packaging -- the ones with the black triangle 🔺️ over-stamp? If this was one of the factories that still had 1st ed artwork on boxes and/or packs, and needed to alter it when changing over to unlimited, they may have labeled the box differently. Of course, the cards, themselves, would not be 1st eds then, but at least those black triangle packs are so rare. Then, there's the unlikely but possible situation that given there were multiple factories, no one knows if the other factory may have labeled their boxes slightly differently. I used to write articles about pokemon back then, and WotC told me there were multiple factories to handle the volume, and that artwork on everything from packs and boxes to the actual cards was not always in sync, and that changes made at one place were not always implemented simultaneously elsewhere. Of course, it could just be unlimited or a total scam, but people didn't believe there were real prototype cards until recently when a former WotC employee confirmed it.
flychomperfly 4 meses atrás
@TapRackBangg- yes, but all possibilities must be considered. Until proven, it's all circumstantial, and that can put the wrong person in jail -- you would not want to be convicted on that. I was commenting only about the box since I have some info about that. As to the rest of the was indeed extremely incriminating. Note that RP didn't want to say anything absolute bc there was still the possibility that there could be another logical explanation.

@Rattle Pokemon exactly what i was pointing out. They clearly know this item is worth way more than 72k but took whatever money they could which in this case in the auction at 72k which shows they were trying to sell off this fake thing at whatever price they could and dip because if it was actually a legitimate box, 72k wouldn’t even be considered.

The number 1 red flag is the estate sale - it was her grandson’s box? What child has a sealed case of Pokémon cards? Also people say it’s their grandpas or grandmas item they passed. We’re having an estate sale. Not the grandchild lol. But my dad got me into collecting. He kept sealed boxes - I obviously did not. I was the only kid who even put their sports and Pokémon’s cards in sleeves and toploaders and didn’t play with them. I didn’t have the strength to keep a sealed pack much less a sealed box. Although I did recently sell some sealed packs of first edition Japanese yugioh cards - never knew what they were. Couldn’t read Japanese. No point in opening them

Spot on dude, a theory (not mine) on how they were able to make the box, stickers, and tape look aged the same is lightly mist entire box with water. Then put it in a food dehydrator for a day or something, that's why the plastic wrapping on the actual pokemon boxes was bubbled and color on the Pokemon box faded.

@Mike Balla Jr Yep, same here(in regards to not being involved with trading cards). You have to love algorithm.

Oh yeah, I saw that guy's theory too, Callum upton. His video sorta started me down this rabbit hole. (What likely got one of these videos on my recommendations, since I'm not a trading card guy in any form.)

In hind sight. After watching mellypops video about the purchase and seeing how Jacob sound when selling something it sounds very similar to the type of verbiage the original sellers eBay listing used.

Remember back in school when you didn't do your homework so you came up with a hugely detailed, ridiculous story to make it seem real? That's what the seller's first story seems like 😅

@Rattle Pokemon saw the second vid. Great work. You should make a TikTok, so many people using your work to go viral atm.

BBCE is very educated and trusted when it comes to vintage boxes and intertwined and in touch with these companies like topps, Pokémon and what is left of fleer (upper deck). Not saying they can’t be wrong but in the cardboard collectible hobby and business they do have one of the most bulletproof reputations.

@Jay Yavid wrong about what troll with no valid info to the discussion. They are intertwined within sports card companies along with being a contractor of PSA grading authenticate every Pokémon pack PSA grades so yes that would be considered educated and trusted . Clearly also said they could be wrong you skipped over that part or didn’t get to it

Maybe if he had hired rattle to authenticate his cards instead.. He would still have his money.

After all of this, Logan might pull a scummy move and keep it sealed and try to sell it for more then what he paid saying it's 100% legit.

@Alexanders VeryOwn this video by rattle Pokémon disproves your theory that this might be a publicity stunt. Logan doesn’t live in Canada.

@msftvsn yeah, just finished watching the video. Idk, all this might be a publicity stunt. He probably didn't even spend $3.5M. Who knows🤷‍♂️

Don’t understand the point in keeping the case sealed. Pokemon is not like sports cards. In sports, you get a “Case Hit” meaning finding a sealed case is more valuable. Pokemon does not work the same way. There’s no case hits. Case should be opened and each box authenticated.

@CO_Snowy If the "case" was sent to authentication and each box was opened and authenticated then resealed, I would value that MUCH higher than just a "sealed" case.

Even if it’s open it todays age there is NO 100% authentication unless you open the box then what’s the point hahahah

I lived in Gainesville for a few years and am still somewhat local. Meelypops is a good store with fair prices and the guys are nice but god damn do they come across as some absolute idiots on this. Very childlike.

Im coming back to this video today for a long car ride. Dont they make like fine óptic wires as small as a needle with cameras they could poke the smallest hole and actually get eyes inside, withought breaking any kind of seals for situation like this when theres doubt of the content of a sealed Item? Just a thought.
