Whether you are just getting into the trading card game Yugioh or have been playing for 20 years, it is important to know how to evaluate cards and understand what makes a card valuable. There are three main factors to consider: rarity, condition, and collectability. The more foiling and holographic highlights on a card, the rarer it is. In general, the older a card is and the better condition it is in, the more value it has.
The first thing to think about when evaluating a Yugioh card is its rarity. Some cards are more rare than others simply because they were printed in smaller quantities. The Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon is an example of this. This card is one of the most sought after cards in all of Yugioh and for good reason. It is a rare card from one of the first ever sets and is hard to find in top condition.
Another rare card in the Yugioh world is the Exodia the Forbidden One. This is the card that Yugi used to crush Seto Kaiba in the anime show and is also sought after for collectors. To play this card you need all five pieces of Exodia and only a few exist in PSA 10. This card sells for a pretty penny when found in good condition.
A third card that is considered to be very rare in the Yugioh world is the Black Luster Soldier. This card is unique because it was printed on stainless steel. The card was created for Tyler Gressle, a young man fighting a rare form of liver cancer. The card was created as part of a Make-A-Wish Foundation request and became an iconic symbol for the game.
While the card is not as rare as the other two, it is still very hard to find and is valued at over $1,000,000! The card is a reminder to all of us that we should live life to the fullest and that no matter what obstacles we face we can overcome them.
