If you had $150,000 USD to spend on a card, then which one would it be? This guy, Logan, decided to spend it on a Pokémon card. And as you can see in the video, he's very happy!

It's interesting, because at 4:38 of the video, he states that a "BGS 10 is Eminem" and a "PSA 10 is Drake." These guys are musicians (rappers). Eminem has been in the music industry much longer than Drake and has a much larger fan base. Drake, although very popular, is still not on the same level as Eminem. So, he's saying that a BGS 10 is better than a PSA 10. This is obviously not true for vintage cards.

Oh God, This "Logan" character is Logan Paul. An Obnoxious Social Media personality that makes millions of dollars for doing nothing. I don't understand how these people are successful.

My disgust for him aside, I'd probably break it up over more than a few cards. A few Cobbs, the General Baking Company one posted in another thread is beautiful, along with one of each of his t206's. An e-90-2 Wagner. Frankly I'd probably buy a prominent card of a good portion of the Dead Ball Era Legends.

The 33 Goudey Ruths, a 33 Goudey Gehrig, a 34 Goudey Gehrig, a 39 Playball Ted Williams, 51 Bowman Mantle, 51 Bowman Mays and a 52 Topps Mantle. That should be approaching the $150K Mark with all of those purchases. If I had some leftover, maybe a Johnston's Cookies Aaron.
