Yu-Gi-Oh has held a place in the world of playing cards. The rough translation of the name is King of games. The Anime was produced in the 2000s but even though the series ended, the fans remained hitched to the name. It has sold over 22 billion trading cards. The demand is increasing where decks and booster packs are released year after year. The value differs from card to card, and some of them can be valuable only if you know.
Blue-Eyes White Dragon
This variation was released in 2002. The duelling monster was part of a release for game boy color game “Yu-Gi-Oh – Dark Duel Stories”. If you unmask this dragon, then the price of your card can go up to USD 400.
Dark End Dragon
The Drak End Dragon was more like a prize. Not many available, the card was indeed a prize for those who participated in Shonen Jump Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship in 2009. The top of the championship received Drak End Dragon. The price can start at $800 and can go up to $1200.
The price of the Gold Sarcophagus is high because there are only a few available in the market. There are only 25 copies of the card. This makes it one of the rarest on the list. The card was presented to the best players of the YU-Gi-Oh! Trading card championship between 2005-2006. If you have your hands on one of these, then you are looking at $1400, and if you add it to your collection, then it surely becomes a valuable one.
When dealing with Shrink, you have to be very careful. You can find tons of Shrink on eBay, but what you won’t find are the limited-edition prize cards of Shrink. They were released in 2006 Shonen Jump Yu-Gi-Oh! Championships. The cards from the first edition are very valuable and if you have it in the deck, then you can expect around 2000USD in return.
Minerva the Exalted Lightsworn
Minerva the Exalted Lightsworn is another Prize-card in the list. They were released in 2015 and were given at Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championships. Initially, the value of the card remained normal but it skyrocketed when it became part of many elite decks. An original version of Minerva can get you 2300USD. You can auction it online.
Cyber Stein was first released in 2004 and was the prize card for Shonen Jump Championship. You can still find the card in the second-hand market, but it is very rare. It can steamroll your opponent and that’s what made it so expensive. If you can get your hands on one of these, you are looking at 3000USD price.
Rare cards are rare to find and that’s what makes them valuable. Even though some cards are easily available on eBay, the limited-edition are hard to get, and if you can get them, you are looking at a great deal of money. You can still get many of the cards in the second-hand market if you look scan for it.
