American football professional playerLas Vegas Raiders» Blake Martinez announced his retirement after seven years in the big leagues. This became possible after he sold a rare card Pokémon for 672 thousand dollars. We are talking about a map with Pikachu-illustrator, of which there are only 39 pieces in the whole world. Martinez, unfortunately, was not lucky to get a card of the highest, tenth rank – as we remember, video blogger and amateur boxer Logan Paul paid 5 million 275 thousand dollars for it. However, a card with a “weight” of 9.5 points was enough to provide the player.
Martinez has been collecting and collecting Pokémon cards for many years. And a special passion for this activity awakened in him in 2020, at the height of the pandemic. He even opened his own collectible card business. This is probably the hobby he intends to pursue after he leaves the NFL.
