    If you have $3.5 million to spend on Pokemon cards, I don't relate to you on any level.
    "I will never vote for Donald Trump because I stand with free markets and religious freedom and personal responsibility. Donald Trump stands against all of these things. He stands for trade restrictions and and an anti-morality foreign policy and government domination of religion and nastiness toward women and tacit appeals to racism and unbounded personal power. I stand with conservatism. Donald Trump stands against it. I stand with #NeverTrump."

    I had a stepson when pokemon were popular and I bought him about a million pokemon cards. He had every starter deck and I yeah I bought him so many boosters. We wanted all the shinies. So he ended up with shoe boxes of multiples and he would take those and get a spot a the local market on weekends and sell them to kids. We had the mat and I used to play against him a lot. Its a good game. Strategy. Its basically like Magic. I dont play Magic but I have known people that did. You know what was cooler though? Pokemon Stadium on Nintendo 64. Its exactly like the card game but you get the attack animations.

    Is the publicity from losing 3.5 million worth 3.5 million. You wouldnt think so hey. Plus who doesnt know who this jackass is at this point? Maybe he really did lose that money. Wjats this guy worth anyway? I dont think it will hurt him too much.

    My son and I used to go every week to buy Pokemon cards.

    He has quite a collection of "Shinies".

    He recently sold a couple of them for over $1,000 EACH.

    Pretty much paid for his collection already.

    Maybe I am too unsympathetic, but in my opinion anyone who buys something online for $3.5 million and expects it to come in the mail almost deserves to get ripped off, due to their stupidity.

    That's how scammers work. Make you think you are getting a deal so good, that you can make easy money, that it's an opportunity you cannot pass up. So the buyer doesn't do all the due diligence and as willing to take great risks in a somewhat suspicious situation they would not normally be willing to take.

    Keep in mind Logan Paul's net worth was estimated to be $35 million, so this is a tenth of everything he owns.
