The upcoming Magic: The Gathering and The Lord of the Rings crossover set will print the rarest card in the entire trading card game. Because she will be truly unique.
There are some super rare cards in the trading card game Magic: The Gathering. What comes to mind first are the Black lotus, the Mox artefacts or possibly special misprints. But soon the 30-year-old game will get a new card that will eclipse all others in its rarity.
Because in the upcoming Lord of the Rings crossover set (The Lord Of The Rings – TALES OF MIDDLE EARTH) a card is only printed once. You read that right. The card will only be in a booster in the world and will probably make a person very rich. So the map will be something like an NFT – only it actually physically exists in the real world. It is of course the One Ring, in the foil version.
Find the “1 of 1 Ring”
As seen in the image above, there will be several special rings through various sources that play such an important role in the Tolkien saga. However, the “1 of 1 Ring in foil” is only available in English-language Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth Collector Booster Packs and only once.
The card text is written in the dark tongue of Sauron in tengwar characters. The other rings are themed around those given to humans, elves and dwarves. These are also written in Tengwar.
All of the different versions of the One Ring are mechanically identical, meaning owning the 1-of-1 card (or any of the other special editions) will not confer any advantages in a game. Not that anyone would think of taking the card anywhere, let alone using it in a game…
We can’t wait to report back that the card was pulled from a booster and how much it will be worth. The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth Crossover Set will be released on June 23, 2023. The digital version – which won’t include the 1-of-1 card, by the way – will be released a few days earlier, on June 20th.
