Magic the Gathering’s  Million Lord of the Rings Card Has Been Found

Magic the Gathering’s $2 Million Lord of the Rings Card Has Been Found

Someone has found Magic: The Gathering’s Lord of the Rings The One Ring card, which currently has a bounty of $2 million.

As reported by The Gamer, the one-of-a-kind One Ring card avoided the grasp of sticky-fingered children and was instead found by someone who was aware of its value and immediately submitted the card for authentication with the leading card grading firm, the PSA.

Trading card buying and collecting company Dave and Adam’s Card World upped its initial $1 million bounty of the card and is now willing to pay $2 million for it, though the transaction has not yet happened as the card has only just emerged. The owner of the card wants to remain anonymous, according to the PSA.

The One Ring received a Mint 9 grading from the PSA, the second highest authentication available. While it seems unfortunate the card didn’t gain a Mint 10 grading, achieving this status is incredibly difficult and relies on factors outside the owner’s control like text positioning and printing standards.

The most important thing to card game communities and the soon-to-be-millionaire who owns it, is that The One Ring was found in good condition, graded to ensure its quality, and now sits preserved in secure plastic casing.

If its sale for $2 million goes through, it will easily become the most valuable Magic: The Gathering (and any trading card game) card of all time. The record is currently held by a Beta set Black Lotus which sold for $540,000 in March.

The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth set was announced by Wizards of the Coast in August 2021 and was finally released on June 23. IGN revealed the first handful of cards from the set in March alongside the announcement of the special One Ring card.
