$25,000 Yugioh Card
« on: December 14, 2004, 10:51:31 AM »
As of this writing, an extremely rare American Yu-Gi-Oh card is resting on Ebay at a bid of $25,300. The "Cyber-Stein" card is one of only two copies in existance distributed as prizes at the Shonen Jump Yu-Gi-Oh Championship held at the GenCon convention in Anaheim, California last weekend. Currently there are no plans for the extremely rare Cyber-Stein card to be mass produced.

Personally I think that is a dumb investment.  This card will eventually be mass produced, but I guess if you got to have it, and you got the money, whatever.  If I recall its use from the video games, you pay 5000 LP when you summon it to special summon one Fusion Monster.  There are only about 2 Fusion monsters in the game worth this kind of LP hit, and one of them (Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon) hasn't been released here yet.

Indeed... it's far too risky to invest in a trading card...

I'm sorry, but I think that's rediculous. I can't see spending that much on a card...


and yea, I know I probably misspelled that, too...
Thanks to Chaos for the siggy!!!


Well, I don't want the world to see me,
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am...

My mom won't let me pay 10 dollars for a card let alone 25,000 grand for one.

There is no way in Hell that I'm going to pay, like, 28, 000 dollars for a piece of paper. I agree with ZeroRyoko; it'll probably end up being mass produced. Therefore, I think that it's a complete waste of money.

Filippo Inzaghi is da man. Also, Italy is da man. AC Milan is also da man just as equally.
