KONAMI’s 25th anniversary celebrations for the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game continue by commemorating three of the most formidable monsters in the Yu-Gi-Oh! game, The God of Obelisk, Saint Dragon — The God of Osiris and The Sun of God Dragon. The Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) Stainless Steel Egyptian God Cards mark the first set of stainless steel collectibles released for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG.


Tournament players and hobbyists can join the ranks of Seto Kaiba and Yami Yugi by harnessing the game’s fear-inspiring ancient monsters. Highly coveted cards with formidable ATK/DEF ratings, any player lucky enough to wield Obelisk the Tormentor, Slifer the Sky Dragon or The Winged Dragon of Ra can destroy opponents with the flick of a wrist. KONAMI pays homage to these card designs, bringing worldwide card collectors and fans of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series an upscale keepsake for the home.

Upon unboxing, the collectible item arrives in branded packaging, including a protective sleeve and textured black box. Inside, three stainless steel cards showcase an eye-catching sheen and prismatic color effect that catches the light — a unique and coveted accent distinct to rare Yu-Gi-Oh! playing cards. Each card in the set is meticulously polished for added brilliance and encased in acrylic glass panels secured by stainless steel hardware. Steel pegs are included in the box so collectors can position the item upright for display.

KONAMI’s release during the 25th anniversary of the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game celebrates the franchise’s iron grip on pop culture and generations of players who have kept the Egyptian God Cards, among other monsters, safely tucked away in their Decks for a devastating attack. US- and Canada-based consumers who purchase the Stainless Steel Egyptian God Cards can opt into a sweepstakes to win a coveted Ultra Rare tournament-legal Normal Monster version of Black Luster Soldier, limited to 2,000 copies. Winners will receive notification once their items ship, but you may opt into the sweepstakes with no purchase necessary.

Get a closer look at the stainless steel beasts in the video above. The Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Stainless Steel Egyptian God Cards are available to pre-order from KONAMI, starting December 15, with orders expected to ship in early 2024. Yu-Gi-Oh! fans based in Latin America can cop the series here. For those based in Europe, fans can shop the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG collection here.
