Post Malone May Have Just Spent $2M On An MTG Card
In June, a series of cards was released for Magic: The Gathering – The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-Earth, and hidden among them was something legendary. There was a line-up of cards that offered players the opportunity to wield ‘The One Ring’, but there were four different forms – one of which was a serialised one of one – truly The One Ring.
It was special in every way, and it sat there, waiting for one lucky player – or savvy collector – to bust open a pack and secure it. It was found and certified after around a week on the market, and immediately, bids came flying in thick and fast, with some going as high as $2 million.
Hours ago, Post Malone met the owner and purchased that card – but how much did he spend on it?
Post Malone Has Nerd Money
Post Malone is well known for his nerdy attributes. He’s a big gamer and a collector, and he loves Magic: The Gathering. It comes as little surprise that he’d want to get his hands on a one-of-a-kind, never before seen MTG card.
In a short clip posted on TikTok, we see Post Malone meeting Brook Trafton, the now-previous owner of The One Ring card. He evaluates the card (while obviously elated), and agrees to buy it there and then, causing Trafton to essentially collapse into a flood of tears. It hasn’t been confirmed exactly how much Malone has paid for the card, but we can safely assume it was a hefty amount.
Here’s the clip:
What do you think? Would you pay $2 million for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind MTG card?
