With the introduction of a manga, (various kinds of) animated series, video games, as well as tons of trading cards, Yu-Gi-Oh has remained constantly popular over the years.
Maybe you are one of many who has had to enjoy to construct a deck from different packs of cards. However, let me ask you this, did you keep any? You should have, because they might give you a bit of a financial boost. Without further ado, here are six #YuGiOh cards that are worth a small fortune:
1. Solemn Strike (BOSH-EN079)
- Price on Amazon: $70.37
Let's kick off the list with a "relatively inexpensive" trap card. Solemn Strike is a part of the Breakers of Shadow Set and the 1st edition version of this card can be bought for around 60-70 dollars.
2. Doomcaliber Knight (SJCS-EN006)
- Price on Amazon: $700.38
Making quite a big leap in price, the promo version of Doomcaliber Knight from the Shonen Jump Championship set goes for around 700 dollars and is considered to be an ultra rare card.
3. Crush Card Virus (SJCS-EN004)
- Price on Amazon: $2,999.88
Okay, so this is where things start to get really serious. The promo version of Crush Card Virus from the same Shonen Jump Championship set is considered to be even rarer than Doomcaliber Knight and can be purchased for around 3000 dollars.
4. Cyber-Stein (SJC-EN001)
- Price on Amazon: $3000
Cyber Stein has been consistently ranked as one of the most expensive Yu-Gi-Oh cards in the world. By using again the Shonen Jump Championship set as a guideline, if you have this card you can sell it for around $3000.
5. Gold Sarcophagus (PT03-EN001)
- Price on Amazon: $1,096.70
If you have the promo edition version of Gold Sarcophagus from the Pharaohs Tour Championship Tour 3, you can sell it for between $750-$1100 dollars.
6. Chinese Dark Magician 1999 Promo Card
- Price on E-Bay: $1,550.55
Dark Magician is one of the most beloved and easily recognized cards in the history of Yu-Gi-Oh. This particular version, a 1999 promo Chinese edition of which only a few were ever printed, can be bought/sold for around 1500 dollars.
