It is no secret that Post Malone is a huge fan of the tabletop card game Magic: The Gathering. However, not a lot of people thought he liked the game so much that he would be willing to part ways with $2.64 million for a one-of-a-kind MTG card called “One Ring.”
“One Ring” was created to celebrate the fantasy franchise The Lord of the Rings. Only one card was produced and put in circulation for one lucky MTG enthusiast to pull it out. It ended up being Toronto native Brook Trafton, who found it in a pack he purchased back in June.
Trafton got the card graded and authenticated by a reputable company Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) and then worked with the marketing firm Notable Group to find a buyer. He managed to meet up with Malone, who was interested in the card, and visited him at a concert in Toronto. Once Malone saw the card, he didn’t want to let it go, so the two agreed on a $2.64 million price.
Trafton decided to remain anonymous throughout the process before revealing his identity earlier this month. He uploaded a couple of videos on his TikTok, including the moment when he pulled out the card and his meeting with Post Malone.
In an interview with Canadian media outlet CBC, Trafton said that he wouldn’t let a large amount of money change him. He intends to be wise about how he spends it and will keep his job.
“This to me would be, you know, just setting myself up for the future, investing in something. And once I feel like I can no longer work or maybe I want to try something else, I can,” Trafton told CBC.
