The One Ring has finally changed hands.
Over a month after having been found, it seems as though Magic: The Gathering’s mega-rare and extremely valuable The One Ring card has finally been sold by its owner. It was thought that the owner was potentially listening to offers on the table, hence such a long wait for the card to be sold off, but a new video on TikTok has shown Magic: The Gathering fan Post Malone purchasing the card for an undisclosed fee.
The video itself was uploaded to TikTok by Brook Trafton, who now appears to be comfortable sharing their identity after they initially wished to remain anonymous. Trafton had posted a video yesterday of them holding the card shortly after pulling it, seemingly preparing to announce the card’s departure today. The separate video of the sale appears to show Post Malone agreeing to purchase the card
“When I found the One Ring, the first person who came to mind was Post Malone,” reads the video description. “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.”
The video itself is very brief, only really showing the card changing hands along with a couple of heartwarming scenes with Post himself. Because of that, we don’t know how much the card has sold for, but the highest bounty for the card was posted at $2 million close to its release. Someone in the video’s comments has claimed that Post bought the card for $2.6 million, though there is no way to verify that number at this time. Whatever the final number is, it’s almost definitely the highest amount of money ever paid for a single MTG card.
