Last week, a Souvenir Dragon Lore sold on OPSkins.com for $61,052.63 (item listing here). This week, Comedy Central’s Adult Swim News segment featured the item and, uh, how to explain the sale to your Grandpa. Watch it here:
Why was this item sold for around the price of a 2018 BMW M3?
The Dragon Lore is already one of highest priced items in the CS:GO skins market. This particular skin was in “factory new” condition, and also featured the autograph of Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham of Cloud9 who took home MVP of the ELEAGUE Boston Major 2018. Throw in the fact that this skin is only available through “Souvenir” crates that are dropped to fans spectating the majors. Rarity + prestige + collectibility = $61k digital gun which has gone down in skins trading history as the Most Expensive Dragon Lore Ever Sold.
