post malone rolled up to my local store today
By - nooblet94
A member of my area’s magic group actually went over to his house for magic night to play EDH with him.
Apparently he plays Zur
Being incredibly rich probably makes up for it, but, being crowded like that when all you're doing is visiting a local shop and trying to buy some cards has gotta be annoying as shit. Like, just leave the man in peace. Why y'all gotta crowd him? Do you expect him to stop and do a song for y'all?
Post malone seems like he barely knows he's famous.
He's mega down to earth.
Definitely. Just listened to a podcast with him and Joe Rogan. He seems super chill.
Post is the opposite of what Joe has become.
Yeah I hate seeing stuff like that. He just wants some magic cards.
lol when it zoomed out and there were like 20 people recording him it was so bizarre. Like seeing people at a zoo.
I love the bud light on the table.
Recently packed an order for him at a large card shop. Can confirm, he had 2 etched foil zurs on his order.
Have you ever had an order where you shook your head in disappointment?
Anything stand out as "I can't believe I am enabling you, sicko. Get help."?
Too many to list. Your eyes kinda just glaze over after a while. But any time I see a winter orb I still glare at the name on the invoice.
sorry about that
Sorry... my meta really had it coming though.
Post is a pretty well known Magic fan at this point, I think. I remember someone else talking about him being really friendly at a local LGS, and he wore that incredibly loud MtG shirt on Seth Meyers.
And he also joined for a game on "I hate your deck" on Youtube, with a disgusting stax deck ahah
Has he? I didn't see him in any of the videos they have.
Most likely patreon exclusive, I haven't seen that one either
Honestly, I think they just confused Jeremy Garcia with Post Malone lmao
Wow I had no idea Jerry Garcia plays stax.
I believe this as well
Unless he is thinking Jeremy from episode 2 was Post due to the tats? Because that Tuvasa deck was very staxy
You're exactly right.
Hmm, it seems I mistook Jeremy Garcia for Post Malone, or assumed it was him because of the face tatoo, in this [video](https://youtu.be/aEd-z40IOyc?t=247). My bad !
Joseph did post a picture meeting Post and said “let’s get that I Hate Your Deck match on”, but I assume it was just an invitation and not that he actually joined the show.
Him and Cassius Marsh on Command Zone. Somebody make it happen please!
it could happen. Command Zone just posted on their twitter he's going to be on a game knights episode
I believe he ran into Joe Johnson and Joe tweeted something along those lines so while it hasn’t happened yet. It could.
Joe did meet post at this LGS though, Joe posted a picture of it on youtube
>Post plays stax
Post has good taste in magic
Did you really just write local LGS???????
Can't believe someone would make that mistake smh my head
I know right, Rip in peace that guy.
Something something lol out loud
Lmfao my ass off
Smh my head
Yeah your local LGS store!
Local Lovely Game Store, it's the new classification
IIRC I remember that seth rogen and him confirmed they both play
Do you know where to locate the VIN number on your car? And be sure no one finds out the PIN number to your debit card or they can steal all your money at the ATM Machine.
Post is one of those artists where I don't like their music, but I can't hate on them because they're such a good person.
This sums up my feelings. He does sing a pretty good Elvis though!
What's wrong with his music?
Nothing *wrong* with it necessarily, I just don't listen to rap that much. I don't dislike it, but I don't really like it, if that makes sense.
I don’t listen to him much but isn’t he more of a singer?
He looks like he would smell bad, I guess he’ll fit right in!
That is fine, but those stacks of time spiral remastered boxes steal the show 🔥🔥🔥
True! Our LGS got like no supply
My LGS got maybe 10 boxes total. One of my friends who missed out on them pulled a foil ponder from the last box my LGS used for packs. Lucky bastard.
that was his appearance fee
Just to clarify this is not truly an LGS. That is a picture of Atlas Games a vendor at Frank & Son’s Collectables shows. Frank’s is pretty much a nerd swap meet, with a bunch of card vendors.
Shits hard to find, couple of weekends ago, me and the fam went to a flea market, guy had 8 3 pack boxes, bout them all, opened two of them, pulled a monastery swiftspear and a foil goyf, then had my brother hide the other six from me at his house because I have an addiction to opening packs. I spent north of 200.
it's frank n sons, the largest lgs is socal. Place is a warehouse.
Calling Frank and Sons an LGS is very misleading.
Frank and Sons is a warehouse, with a TON of non-magic stuff as well.. Comics, anime/manga, Yu-gi-oh and other card games, general "nerdy" stuff. And mostly everyone is an individual vendor. Frank and Sons is effectively the space, while the vendors make the "shows" work.
There are numerous Magic vendors there, but they are their own businesses. It's in person TCGplayer, it's amazon for magic and other nerdy stuff, but a "local game store" it is not.
I haven't been to Frank & Son in 16+ years at this point. Is the wrestling ring still there? I remember lots of wrestling matches happening on weekends when I played in Invasion/Odyssey T2 Tournaments.
It's been moved down the road a mile from the warehouse it was in previously.
I love frank and sons. ❤️❤️❤️
They will never beat the true power of Rudy!!!!!
It really is a cult
Just empty boxes, alas. Merely bait to get you into Post Malone’s lair.
I see packs In those boxes soo
Part of the elaborate ruse. Those packs could be anything to lure you there.
Post Malone must feed...
My LGS has a bunch of them but nothing is selling cause they charge like $12 per pack.
ngl that's the first thing I noticed
The vendor he's at buys sealed product in huge amounts. So it's no surprise to me that he still has timespiral left.
Only at franks. They posted a video and it looked like he was browsing through Atlas MTGs bling binders. The game knights guys were with him so maybe he'll be a guest soon?
Rick has the good shit. Always check with Atlas first.
I'm more of a Brian guy myself. But Atlas does have the most bling.
Brian's booth has a pretty limited selection. I do check with him for RL stuff as my first stop though.
Is it too late for me to vouch for Tom and Ron? I go there for cheap EDH stuff. Atlas is fucking great though
I have no idea who anyone is talking about in this thread.
Frank & Sons is a large collectible show/expo in Southern California, basically a big swap meet for TCGs, Funko Pops, you name it. All the names here are vendors who run booths like the one Post Malone is at (Atlas, one of the larger ones who are pretty well stocked on most things).
Tom and ron's booth is great. Binders of edh stuff, really low prices, especially from Ron if you buy from them a lot.
Problem is getting playsets of new stuff from them since they only sell what is sold to them. Atlas and Brian crack product. Boba rally cracks some and has pretty alright prices, and cardboardia has an alright selection but prices are often higher than the other booths.
That could very well just be josh behind him.
I believe you would be correct.
Yep, you can see Jimmy and Josh in [the livestream](https://www.facebook.com/frankandsonshow/videos/246253667250201) that the store posted (4:20 timestamp).
Oh wow that would be a really high profile guest. I know Cassius is a big name but as someone who doesn't know anything about American football I had no idea who he was.
Most football fans don't even know him tbh. He's been a very borderline starter most of his career.
Not to take anything away from the fact that they got an NFL player in their playgroup, its freaking awesome. But, he is by no means anything close to a celebrity.
Yeah, I would say he’s more famous from being on Game Knights than from being in the NFL.
Oh be still my beating heart
Post on GK would be fantastic.
I'm more impressed they have TSR in stock
Wait - you guys have open stores AND could play together?
Not really playing. That section is usually reserved for looking for browsing specific high-end or high-end trade ins.
Frank and Sons is more like a swap meet with dedicated mtg vendors, and the pic is of Atlas TCG, one of the bigger booths.
I was going to say, Frank’s isn’t really a LGS lol
Like the other person said its like a swap meet but instead if random stuff its stuff people find collectable. Its been long while since i was last there but there is all types of vendors there. Classic video games, pins, comic books, all popular card games, if its collectable you might just find a vendor for it there.
They moved over to the empty Sam's Club on Gale Ave. right before the pandemic. There's actual parking now.
I mean. There’s more parking. It’s still tough to find a spot on big days. But no more mile hikes thru industry so that’s nice.
Could always park at toys r us and make the trek.
Everything should reopen.
Now that people are getting vaccinated, yeah.
I knew this was Frank and Sons right away.
He used to come to my GameStop in Tarzana all the time. One day he dropped $1,700 on a single haul. He kept apologizing for adding stuff to the sale. “Sorry, man, I’m just a big kid.” So friendly and respectful. Him and Logic were the nicest customers.
Did you see cassius marsh and the command zone people as well? Franks was crazy packed today because of those 4
Isn't that JLK in the photo?
you know, it does look like him - buff dude and I think I´ve seen him wear that hat in some BTS scenes... (I believe?)
Post Malone on upcoming Game Knights confirmed? :-P
looks like it! :D
He’s worn that UofO hat on Game Knights before so it’s absolutely JLK
I love how ubiquitous Franks is. Small world indeed.
So crazy to find out how many people know about Franks
I love Franks Red Hot
I put that shit on everything!
I like the comment asking if this is just a ploy for him to make money, like multi multi millionares need to engage in MTG Finance
There's actually a lot of musicians that play MTG
I've seen quite a few concert riders with 'a box of the latest MTG set' on them and the band/crew will literally do a draft after soundcheck lol
That is very cool to hear! If you don't mind sharing, what sort of work do you do?
I do technical production for concerts and events. At least I did for like 23 years before COVID 🤣🤣
Sorry to hear it's been a point of contention after the pandemic :( whishing you all the best moving forward! If it means anything, everyone I know that used to frequent concerts, myself included, intends to jump right back into going to shows ASAP! Hopefully the work picks back up.
When events can happen again I assume I’m going to be ridiculously busy given that everyone’s been starved for over a year now
That's pretty cool. Any names we would recognize?
specifically that play mtg, or artists that I've worked with (cause there's a lot of the later)?
The Acacia Strain for one for MTG playing artists
WOTC also sponsored the 2013 warped tour;[https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/magic-vans-warped-tour-2013-2013-06-06](https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/magic-vans-warped-tour-2013-2013-06-06)
There's also a huge number of actors/etc that play MTG as well
I literally just bought my strixhaven boxes from there today
This is fake. The store has TSR
My thoughts as well. Where is this magical place that has those boxes?
I can ask if they have any left, I'm friends with the guy in the mustard colored shirt, he works there. Atlas Game Store is the name of the booth inside Frank and Sons.
My store still has plenty, but only because the owners refuse to put a box price discount.
Hard to blame them given how WOTC treats them.
Mine too lol. Box for $300. packs are $15. But that was last I checked which was at release. So it could be $400 or $500 now. Which is like their Strixhaven Collector Box which is $300 or $30 per pack at release. Next closest LGS is an hour away so they don't give a fuck.
Not fake, Frank and sons is based in LA. Go there at least once a month. Place is packed with vendors of all things. It's where i get my toploaders and sleeves for the low. If you ever in SoCal defintely should check out
Can you post a google maps link? I’m like 2 hours away but I’d love to check it out.
Also, I’d like to sit down and play with a stranger
https://www.frankandsonshow.net/ here is their site with hours and such
https://goo.gl/maps/2dhTYi3btC36rodDA google map link
Thank you! I genuinely appreciate it!
I have no plans on visiting California
The store is a paid actor.
Joe Manganiello; jacob bertrand; grant imahara these are also some known magic fans. Isaac Hempstead Wright, game of thrones bran stark actor once also got a preview card for a set
RIP Grant 😥
I hadn’t heard about this until reading your comment...i WAS having a decent day.
I think Joe is more of a D&D guy
Joseph Gordon Levitte played as a kid and still has his collection (I think). You can find him on youtube playing a game
I don't really like his style of music but every interview or video of him I've seen has made me think he seems very grounded and kind. This is awesome to see that fame hasn't jaded him.
Same here. Not a fan of the music but the dude is really cool.
I agree about his rap stuff but he's said he only got into rap for the dough. Check out his Nirvana tribute with Travis Barker to see the true extent of his talent. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7eaGcIyhPU](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7eaGcIyhPU)
He also has a pretty excellent Dylan cover: https://youtu.be/d_NS9Vd1sMA
...I’ve no idea how I originally came across this either.
I forgot about this! I’ve watched it and it’s good.
I get my stuff from that exact spot lol. Just saw the picture and knew right away where that was. What a small world...
Small world... isn’t it LA? Lol
Makes ya wonder what other celebs are low key magicians
He's somewhat of a regular at the store I work at now. For people wondering, the decks I know he has are: [[Merieke Ri Berit]], [[Edgar Markov]], [[Karlov, of the Ghost Council]], [[Zur, the Enchanter]], and [[Sliver Queen]].

^^^[[cardname]] ^^^or ^^^[[cardname|SET]] ^^^to ^^^call
Those all are often built to be rude af
My buddy saw him two weeks ago at our LGS near where he lives. Had no idea until people started talking after he left. I've been wanting to meet him for ages lol.
Damn I haven't been to Frank's in quite awhile, mostly since they moved locations. This just reminds me that I need to definitely hit it up now that I got my shots.
My cousin saw Thundeecat at Frank & Sons not too long ago as well, strolling down aisles with two chicks. Celebrity or not, Frank’s is SoCal’s nerd Mecca.
So he did the Pokémon concert so he could buy magic cards?!?
Nah, he's a nerd. He was a Minecraft streamer before he got into music.
This is the famous person they should be pushing. Totally organic.
Who's the non organic they're pushing? Oh, patton and trejo?
Calling Frank and Sons your LGS is like calling Walmart a mom and pop shop.
The more shocking part is that you store has any timspiral remastered
Yep! He lives not far from me actually and a buddy of my told me how this game store owner he knows has delivered cards to his house and actually played there before. Super jelly
I don't know his music very well but he always seems like a grounded guy in interviews and stuff. Pretty cool.
OH MY GOD!
how are there so many boxes of Time Spiral Remastered?
Isn't that JLK with him? I recognize the arms and the Oregon hat!
Love that fucker
Damn, I wish my LGS had that amount of inventory!
I have heard he is really down to earth and just a nice guy so that would make sense
Brook Lopez came to buy comics in the store where I used to work. Back when the Nets were still in Newark and he was playing for them.
Nah. We got a guy that looks like that, too.
jimmy wong posted a pic on his story. looks like its actually mr. malone
Yeah and he asked if he should try to get him on an episode of I Hate Your Deck. Would be really cool.
In store play + a mountain of TSR boxes? Where is this MTG heaven and how do I get there?
Havent gone in a while (and they switched locations) but this might be the great Frank and Sons that lot of people here are referencing. Big ol' warehouse of nerd stuff and they got a section for tcg.
That's who Wizards should have given early arena access to
He is a nerd just go back an loook into him before he blew up so makes sense pretty sick
Joe From I hate your deck posted a photo with him at his lgs. I would assume probably the same one
This is great to see. I hope his opponents just treat him like a normal dude
Aye i just saw this on tiktok, congrats thats really dope!
What deck was he playing?
My homie ran into him buying cards like two weeks ago, I assure you Post Malone is indeed into MTG
I'll bet he plays aggro red
Is it bad I got more excited over the five boxes of time spiral?
I wonder what kind of deck he plays
Had to find a new game when TESL went in maintenance mode.
That much Timespiral product. wish our stores were so lucky.
some homies and I are trying to get him on stream for a game. Love seeing him more in the community. People def need to let the dude breathe, though.
Who cares about the celebrity, I’m just amazed at the FIVE ENTIRE BOXES OF TSR! I didn’t even think that many existed after WoTC slipped up on the printing.
He's apparently also going to be on a upcoming episode of Game Knights
Oh hey, that's my FB post 😅
wats up jose
ur redit famous
I'm FB friends with the guy who made that post.
Normal dude, doing normal shit. Turn the page.
Let’s hope they told him about showers and deodorant
Well going to age myself here but who is Post Malone and why should I care.
