In the world of auctions, the Pokémon card market is booming. And it is indeed a coveted card that the Maryland-born rapper won in a sale on 10 October. As a good child of the years 90 become a financially comfortable adult, Logic participated in this new kind of auction in an attempt to acquire a Charizard. This fire-type Pokémon 120 hp is considered very rare.

The price paid for this card may seem mind-blowing. We understand a little better the motivations of the artist through a recent Instagram post in which he explains his link to this game. : “When I was a child, I loved Pokémon but I couldn't afford the cards. I even remember trying to exchange food stamps for cards, and now, as an adult who saved every penny he won and who is able to enjoy something that I love from my childhood but now as an adult, it's like buying back a piece of something that I never could have. It has nothing to do with the material aspect, it is experience that it is”.
