Announced back in March, the 1/1 Yu-Gi-Oh! Tyler the Great Warrior card was sold for $311,211 USD. Receiving nearly 200 bids, the only copy of Tyler the Great Warrior that was ever printed has now become the most expensive Yu-Gi-Oh! card sold on eBay to date.

Being the hands of the original owner since 2005, the Tyler the Great Warrior card is considered the rarest card in the trading card game. Tyler the Great Warrior was originally created by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps make the wishes of children with “critical illnesses” come true. The 1/1 card was gifted to Tyler Gressle who was battling a rare liver cancer that only had 200 cases in the entire country. Originally, Tyler asked for a Porsche, but due to his age the wish was impossible, instead, he received the custom Yu-Gi-Oh! card based on Dragon Ball Z.

Referencing his battle with cancer, Tyler the Great Warrior is inspired by Tyler’s favorite character Future Trunks and was able to watch the card be printed. The card was placed in a glass case and only recently removed from its special protective packaging to be graded. Additionally, Tyler was flown out to New York to meet late Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi and the voice actors for the anime.

Despite only holding a 7, Near Mint rating, the signed card beat out the previous eBay record held by the sale of a 2002 LOB 1st Edition Blue-Eyes White Dragon PSA 10 GEM card sold for $85,100 USD in October 2020.

“As the unmatched marketplace for trading cards and collectibles, we strive to connect our community of collectors with rare, hard-to-find items,” said Gene Cook, VP of Global Collectibles. “We’re thrilled that this legendary Yu-Gi-Oh! card found a new home in our community, and Tyler entrusted eBay with the sale of such a meaningful card.”
