Singer-songwriter and huge Magic: The Gathering fan Post Malone purchased the super-rare One Ring card after it was found in Whitby, Ontario, early last month.
Brook Trafton shared a brief video on TikTok of him meeting Post Malone and handing over the One Ring. Though the video didn’t disclose the amount Trafton sold the card for, comments under the video claim Post Malone paid $2.6 million (it’s not clear whether that was USD or CAD). However, that claim is unverified and may not be accurate.
When the card was first found, it was valued at $2 million USD (about $2.6 million CAD).
@brooktrafton When I found the One Ring, the first person who came to mind was @Post Malone. I have played MTG since I was a kid and obviously it would be amazing to keep this card. But for a guy like me, being able to sell it is life changing. I just really hoped it would go to someone who would appreciate it as much as I do. This is my dream come true, meeting Post Malone and him buying the One Ring card from me is literally a moment straight out of a fairytale. Post Malone @Magic: The Gathering you have changed my life. Things like this don’t happen to people like me, I guess it’s magic. I am forever grateful 🙏 ✨ #postmalone #onering #oneofone #mtg #magic #mint #psa #card #magicthegathering #lordoftherings #trading #tradingcards #theonering #sauron #collector #edition #one #gandalf #tradingcardgame ♬ original sound – Brook Trafton
