2023 is the twenty fifth anniversary of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG, and to have fun Konami has introduced again 5 traditional and nostalgic booster units from yesteryear: Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon, Steel Raiders, Spell Ruler, Pharaoh’s Servants, and Invasion of Chaos. These 5 units have been initially launched from 2002 to 2004, and in case you have been taking part in and/or accumulating Yu-Gi-Oh! playing cards throughout this time you’ll keep in mind opening packs from every, chasing particular person playing cards like Darkish Magician, Jinzo, Blue Eyes White Dragon, Gate Guardian, Summoned Cranium, and Exodia.

Konami not too long ago despatched us every of the 5 booster units, giving us the chance to relive the glory years of our childhood. Opening the identical packs we feverishly opened 20 years in the past was a nuclear, nostalgic blast from the previous and a number of the most enjoyable we have had all yr. Beneath, you may all the things you want to find out about these new releases and why we advocate indulging in that new pack scent no less than yet one more time.

What’s Within the Field?

  • 24 Packs Per Booster Field
  • 9 Playing cards Per Pack — $4.49 per pack
  • Every Booster Pack has a assure of 1 Uncommon card and eight Commons, with an opportunity of getting a Tremendous Uncommon, Extremely Uncommon, or Secret Uncommon foil card. If you buy an entire Booster Field, you might be assured 1 Secret Uncommon, 2 Extremely Rares, and 4 Tremendous Rares.

The New and the Previous

When it comes to financial worth, these 5 units do not provide as a lot as another units releasing this yr. The playing cards contained inside have now been reprinted a number of occasions and only a few of them can be utilized on the aggressive stage. In consequence, every of the 5 units provide much less financial worth in comparison with lots of the model new units, and it is unlikely you’ll make your a refund. Nevertheless, playing cards like Jinzo, Blue Eyes White Dragon, Gate Guardian, and some others have retained appreciable worth, in case you can pull them. That mentioned, where the units do not provide essentially the most financial worth, the nostalgia worth they provide is unequalled. It does not get extra nostalgic than these playing cards that the entire world chased 20 years in the past.

Talking of pull charges, nothing has modified minus the speed of which Secret Rares seem. With the unique units, a Secret Uncommon would sometimes be pulled at a price of each different Booster Field. Now, one is seemingly assured each Booster Field. That is the one significant change although. In comparison with newer units, you have got have much less of an opportunity of pulling a holo as a result of a holo is just not assured each pack.

Past this tweak, nothing a lot has modified. These are the unique playing cards as you keep in mind them. There are some slight modifications right here and there that convey the playing cards to the fashionable requirements, however these modifications are by and enormous very delicate and straightforward to overlook.

Are They Value It?

In the event you have been accumulating Yu-Gi-Oh! playing cards within the early and mid 2000s, these 5 Booster Units ought to include a nostalgia warning. Opening newer units with their fancier rarities, friendlier holo price, and extra playable playing cards is nice, however it will probably’t recreate the sensation of opening these packs. 9-year-old us would have spent all of our birthday cash on these units. Quick-forward and nothing has modified.

If these units weren’t part of your childhood, there’s inherently much less attraction however there’s nonetheless the identical chase for the premium playing cards like there’s anytime you open a Yu-Gi-Oh! pack, and on this case, a few of these premium playing cards are the sequence’ most iconic and collectible playing cards. The one grievance we have now is we want Konami gave no less than one card in every set the brand new Quarter Century Secret Uncommon therapy it launched this yr. This is able to have taken the discharge of those 5 units to the subsequent stage, however even with out this addition these are a very simple advocate for all Yu-Gi-Oh! followers, particularly the nostalgic ones.

The next merchandise have been offered by Konami: Blue Eyes White Dragon Booster Field, Steel Raiders Booster Field, Spell Ruler Booster Field, Pharaoh’s Servants Booster Field, and Invasion of Chaos Booster Field.
