CGC Trading Cards-certified Pokémon Venusaur Sold by Logan Paul for $19,000 to Benefit Boxing Bullies Foundation

Posted on 12/28/2021

The sale has set the record price for this Base Set Venusaur card.

Many collectors may be familiar with YouTube star Logan Paul for either the content he creates, his high profile boxing career or the fact that he has elevated the prices of Pokémon cards through the roof. Recently, Paul posted a photo on his Instagram story showcasing a CGC Trading Cards-certified Venusaur card graded CGC 9 that sold for $19,000, shattering the price record for similar Venusaur cards.

The auction happened at an after-party event following the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley rematch fight in Tampa, Florida, on December 19, 2021 and was sponsored by Promify, Fangible and Clover. All proceeds were donated to Boxing Bullies, a nonprofit founded by Jake Paul, Logan Paul’s brother.

Boxing Bullies’ mission is to help build children’s confidence, leadership and courage through boxing, while using social media as a voice to fight bullying. The organization has raised more than $400,000 in total donations and has given over 150 pairs of boxing gloves to children nationwide.

“CGC Trading Cards is honored to be a part of this record sale, which benefitted a great cause,” said Matt Quinn, CGC Trading Cards Senior Grading Finalizer. “When bidding on a card in a CGC Trading Cards holder, collectors can be confident that it’s authentic and accurately graded.”

Since launching in July of 2020, CGC Trading Cards has graded impressive collections, such as a complete Pokémon Tropical Mega Battle VS Deck, a host of rarities, such as the coveted Pokémon Illustrator card, and exciting test prints, like the Blastoise card that sold for $360,000. Collectors and the marketplace have clearly embraced trading cards that are certified by CGC Trading Cards, which are backed by the industry-leading CGC Trading Cards Guarantee of authenticity and grade.
