Lee ‘Leonhart’ Steinfeld is a lawyer who left his job to pursue his true passion: the Pokémon universe. He accumulates more than 870,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel , waiting for his videos about the Pokémon trading card game . For those who do not follow this world much, there are some Pokémon cards that are incredibly coveted depending on the edition and its year, where the cards of the initial roll reach exorbitant prices at auctions .
It is important to point this out so that you understand what you are going to see next in one of the latest Leonhart videos. In the middle of the month, the user managed to get a booster pack from the first edition of the game, an item that as you will understand has a great rarity. It is a special opportunity, and he knows it. ” The fact that I can get $ 7,000 out of this envelope right here is crazy, ” said Leonhart before opening the pack. But the truth is that he fell short with the figure since he brought out nothing less than an original Charizard valued at more than $ 55,000.
Leonhart’s reaction to obtaining it is priceless ( from 23:50 ). First, the tremors start in his hand, and then the screaming as he celebrates like crazy having obtained this card. Not without first protecting it properly with its cover, of course, that is the most important thing. And it is that a Charizard of the first edition in perfect condition reached 56,000 dollars at auction a few years ago, and its price only goes up, so anyone would put himself, in the same way, to find himself in this situation.
” I can’t even take [the card] out of its case again, folks, ” the user commented excitedly after obtaining what he later defined as “the holy grail” of Pokémon cards. Of course, whether or not it reaches that value will depend on the valuation that the PSA gives to the letter, although it is sure that it will be above ten in thousands of dollars. You may not find yourself in a Pokemon Sword and Shield with a lucky break like this, but it’s also most exciting, and if you haven’t tried it yet, here’s our review of Pokemon Sword and Shield.
