YouTuber Logan Paul (USA) has recently acquired a coveted PSA Grade 10 Pikachu Illustrator card following a record-breaking trade worth $5,275,000 (£3,862,424 / €4,477,146).

The card was purchased by Paul in Dubai on 22 July 2021, breaking the record for most expensive Pokémon trading card sold at a private sale.

To obtain the PSA Grade 10 Pikachu Illustrator card, Paul exchanged a PSA Grade 9 Pikachu Illustrator card worth $1,275,000 that he had purchased from renowned sports card collector Matt Allen in Como, Italy.

This Grade 9 card plus $4,000,000 equalled the cost of the pristine Grade 10 Pikachu Illustrator card.

"The Pikachu Illustrator is one of the rarest and most highly coveted Pokémon cards in the world," said Paul.

"Only 39 were given out to Illustration contest winners in 1998, and this was a purchase for the only one in the world that has been graded a perfect "10.""

After leaving the ring and heading backstage, Paul was presented with his official Guinness World Records certificate for the most expensive Pokémon trading card sold at a private sale by Adjudicator Mike Marcotte.

When asked how it felt to break this record, Paul said he'd been trying to do this his "whole life".

"I applied for so many records and the fact that I finally got one after my first [WWE] win ever? I come back to the locker room and I get a second win right away?"

"I love Pokémon and the fact that it’s been validated with Guinness World Records – this is crazy. Tonight’s a wild night. This does not feel real!" – Logan Paul
