American rapper Post Malone has purchased the world’s rarest trading card.
The One Ring card, which was printed as part of Magic the Gathering’s recent crossover with The Lord of the Rings, is printed 1/1, meaning there is literally only one of these cards in existence.
Now, the card, which has been valued at over $2M, has been purchased by Post Malone. In a video posted to Instagram and TikTok by a user named Brook Tafton, Malone is shown receiving the card, although exactly how much the rapper paid for the card is unknown.
Trafton wrote in the caption of the post, “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.”
This is the first public confirmation of the finder of the card. It was announced in June that the mysterious card had been found, however, the identity of the person who found it was kept secret.
The card was then graded by PSA, the leading authority on trading card quality, who graded the card a 9 out of a possible 10.
However, in this case, the authenticity of the card was more relevant than the card, since it’s the only one in existence.
