Most Valuable Yugioh Cards Countdown

#8 Blue Eyes Shining Dragon
Retro Pack 2 – $750
Blue Eyes Shining Dragon

This is the 2nd card from Retro Packs to make our Countdown.  The first Retro Pack card on the countdown was Thousand-Eyes Restrict.  BESD is a secret rare card from Retro Pack 2, which was released in 2009.  Retro packs gave newer players a chance to collect older rare cards.   Blue Eyes Shining Dragon was originally released in a Movie Pack that was given to people who attended the movie “Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light”. 

In 2017, this PSA 10 card sold for $750. 

Some quick notes on our rankings:  These are all cards you could have reasonably collected in the United States.  These are cards that appeared in booster packs, video games, leagues, and/or Starter Sets. Yugioh TCG fans/players could have plausibly obtained these cards through auctions, trades and/or blind luck pulls.  There are no “prize cards” or “error cards” on our list.  All values are based on actual sales of YGO Cards on eBay in 2017. Most card sales were of Professionally-Graded, Gem Mint cards, which are independently certified on their condition. Here’s an article on Graded Pokemon Cards if you don’t know what Graded Cards are.
