"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," Trafton wrote on his Tiktok caption.

Both of these offers were declined, and Trafton decided to sell the card to Post Malone, who met him in person to make the transaction. Post Malone is no stranger to expensive collectibles as the rapper previously spent $800,000 on an "artist print, Chris Rush-signed Black Lotus."

Collectible grading firm PSA verified the authenticity of the One Ring card in June and scored it a "Mint 9".
