Dark Magician - DDS

Yugioh Dark Duel Stories was a Game Boy Color game that hit stores in March 2002.  In North America, one of two different sets of Promo Cards could be found inside.  Each set contained 3 promo cards.  One set had “Exodia the Forbidden One”, “Dark Magician” and “Blue-Eyes White Dragon”. The other set had “Acid Trap Hole”, “Seiyaryu”, and “Salamandra”.  Some people got lucky, and some people got unlucky on those!

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.
