Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Cassius Marsh just made some fans for life after cracking open fresh packs of Pokémon cards for TikTok star Addison Rae’s family. The action went down this week at the NFL veteran’s trading card store, Cash Cards Unlimited, located in Westlake Village, CA.
Marsh has cemented himself as an ambassador in the trading card world, as he is a longtime fan and collector of both Magic: The Gathering and Pokémon cards. Over the years, the NFL star has created a huge presence at conventions and during competitive tournament play as he is regularly seen taking photos with fans and signing cards.
Earlier this week, Marsh welcomed TikTok star Addison Rae’s younger brothers, Lucas and Enzo, as well as her father, Monty Lopez, to his card store to check out his huge collection of treasures.
We’re told “Love & Listings” co-creator Tai Savet is currently putting together a new office for his Agents of L.A. real estate brokerage right next to Cassius Marsh’s card store and brought Monty and the boys to the store, as they are huge fans of the Pokémon trading card game.
We’re told Cassius Marsh treated everyone to a special moment when he did a Pokémon box break with the kids and created a huge pile of cards and ripped packs in the process.
Marsh’s store has been creating a ton of buzz as they join the popular craze of box breaks, which is a live event where a box or case of cards is opened and divided up among those who have purchased a piece of that particular box. The process allows customers to get in on a chance to obtain high-value cards from rare lots without having to spend a ton of cash.
We’re told Lucas and Enzo were extremely stoked about the score from their box break, which revealed all sorts of rare cards that they had not yet added to their collection.
Making the experience even better, we’re told Cassius Marsh actually gave the crew a few more high-end items, including a Charizard in perfect mint condition (photo above) valued at around $700!
The kids aren’t the only ones who get excited with big pulls during box breaks, just check out Marsh and his friends below during a recent live stream.
