When it comes to Yu-Gi-Oh, there are a plethora of high-end collectibles to choose from, but few, if any, can surpass the million-dollar mark. Sure, there are some cards and figures that may fetch triple digits, but the series isn’t large enough to bring in millions at an auction. But that is exactly what occurred in China.
The whole thing went down when an auction in China went viral for its take on Yu-Gi-Oh. During the event, a rare Yu-Gi-Oh card was included which Konami released for the franchise’s 20th anniversary. The Blue-Eyes White Dragon gold edition card is made of solid gold, and there are only 500 in the world. At its release, the card was valued around $1,800 USD but is now expected to cost $45,000
