Father Sells Ultra Rare ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’ Collection Worth $20,000 for Daughter’s Education
One avid “Yu-Gi-Oh!” collector from Japan, who goes by the Twitter handle @KnightMiyabi, recently sold his super rare cards in pristine condition and are believed to be worth more than $5,000 each.
The man parted ways with his epic collection of Blue Eyes White Dragon cards — famously used by the anime/manga character Seto Kaiba in “Yu-Gi-Oh!” — to make sure his daughter’s future education is secure.
According to @KnightMiyabi, the value of the cards are exceptionally high considering that the company only made a thousand copies in Japanese, as translated by SoraNews24.
The original “Yu-Gi-Oh!” trading card game was manufactured and distributed by Konami.
However, the English counterpart of the Blue Eyes White Dragon card is not as valuable as the Japanese version, and can be bought for pennies.
Unfortunately, @KnightMiyabi did not go into specific details of exactly how much he received through the deal. But he mentioned that a collector would not sell a piece of this highly valuable card for less than 600,000 yen ($5,000). Given that he sold the four cards pictured, that could net him over $20,000.
The money reportedly will not be used to enroll his daughter into a prestigious, high-ranking university, but to ensure that she gets accepted into a good kindergarten and has a bright future ahead of her.
