Yu-Gi-Oh! 1st Ed Legend Of Blue Eyes Box Auctioning At Heritage

Heritage Sponsored

Do you remember the earliest days of the Yu-Gi-Oh! collectible card game? There was a time, not terribly long ago, when cards from this game were so very strong, and thus very sought-after, but oh, so simple. Some of the strongest cards, such as Blue-Eyes White Dragon or Dark Magician, had powerful stats but no additional abilities. Others would win you the game on the spot, given having five particular cards in your hand. The interesting link between the cards we have mentioned is that they're all in the Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon set.

Heritage Auctions, an auction house based in Dallas, Texas that deals mainly with video games, comics, trading cards, and other collectibles, has put a rare, 1st Edition booster box of that very same set up for auction. Prospective bidders have until Saturday, July 24th at 12:50 PM Central Time (or 1:50 PM Eastern Time) to place a bid on the booster box that helped start it all.
