Logic has been digging deep into his bank account as of late. In he spent $226,000 on a rare Pokémon card. When the popular trading cards first emerged in the late ’90s, they weren’t particularly expensive.

The rarity of Logic’s card is the graphic is shadowless, meaning the shadow on the right side of the art isn’t visible.
