    Blue eyes white dragon is my favorite card since I was a little kid, I proudly display my blue eyes statue with my SDK-001 card , but that card you have there is unfathomably expensive! I don't know how you got it and it's in really good condition! Take really good care of that card

    Awesome! I collected Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! as a child in elementary school (I'm an OG collector from both franchises) so I can relate (and know) the joy of getting a super rare card.

    Seeing this version/art of Blue-Eyes is very nostalgic to me for a very special reason.

    When I went to school, everyone started with Pokemon, then switched to Yu-Gi-Oh! as they got older (because the cards looked way cooler and made you feel more grown-up) The switch happened pretty fast so I was the last kid without any Yu-Gi-Oh! cards.

    That is until my best friend gave me a pack of cards for my birthday.

    The very first card in that pack? Blue-Eyes White Dragon himself! My very first card was a Blue-Eyes. One of the luckiest moments of my life.

    I didn't realize how lucky I was to get him at the time since I didn't know much about the cards or the series. All I knew is that he looked super cool (still my favorite card) and that it was very valuable so I was very protective of it and swore never to trade it (which I never did).

    Also related but the kids at my school would always claim that all First Edition cards (or any card with the gold square in the corner) were fake (none of them were) and I was the only one who didn't quite trust that claim. "Are these cards really fake? "First Edition" sounds special to me" Is what I thought at the time.

    Those claims paid off though because I was able to get a "fake" Blue-Eyes by trading a much worse "real" card. A First Edition Blue-Eyes for a random 5 Star monster card was the best trade I ever made.

    Later on a kid had 3 Blue-Eyes that everyone was jealous of but I saw that they were clearly fake based on the back of the card (the swirl was different than the official cards and didn't have Konami printed anywhere) Eventually he didn't want them anymore and gave them to me. I then went around boasting how I had "5" Blue-Eyes even though 3 were fake. One kid knew they were fake but no one would believe them much to my benefit.

    Sometime after that, around when GX began, everyone quit collecting them. I was the last one to stop simply because there was no one else left to play/trade with. Never went back to collecting cards, but I did play some of the games years later to relive some of those memories.

    I was never able to get a third legit Blue-Eyes to complete the trio and make Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon but I did get Toon-Eyes Blue Dragon which was the next best thing.

    That's my story/history with Yu-Gi-Oh! and Blue-Eyes. Bit of a long read, but it's a good read.

    Enjoy your prize/grail/trophy! That card is a masterpiece!

    Jawbreqker14 days ago#86908945Congratulations! Such a gorgeous holographic glitter on that card, even in the unfiltered photo it's so colorful! I can only imagine what it looks like in person! Hopefully you find a place to display it that shows off that beautiful glimmer really well, then it can bring you lots of smiles just at a glance!
    Thank you! It truly is beautiful and I'll be displaying it as the proud centerpiece of my Blue-Eyes shelf :D

I was super envious and always in awe at the majesty of the artwork. Congratulations on obtaining your holy grail! :D make sure to get a good card sleeve protector to go with it!
    My prized winged kuribo salutes your DDS BEWD! :3

    That's an amazing story!! Unfortunately I didn't know anyone who liked collecting cards growing up, although my collection was Pokemon at that time. I've double sleeved it and I'll be putting it in a protective case!
    Hehe thank you, Winged Kuriboh is one of my favourite non-Kaiba related cards! Good choice.

    Thank you, that makes me really happy to hear it! I was uncertain about posting this here since it's not a figure grail so hearing something like that makes me glad I posted it.

    Thank you! I'm glad that you could still feel my excitement and how special it is :D

    Bah-Roo14 days ago#86908821Cool, I’m happy you were able to get a grail like that! :D
    I’m not really into cards, but I can see the appeal of them. Especially ones with shiny materials and pretty graphics. I love the photo you took with the dragon statue! I love the pearly texture of the statue’s wings and the uber shiny rainbow background on the card.
    Side note, the wings on the statue reminded me of this totally random thing I saw on Amiami the other day, I’ll share it with you and hope you get a kick out of it (it made me laugh a lot and I was almost tempted to buy it for how weird - and wonderful - it was) www.amiami.com/...

    Thank you! It is certainly very shiny and beautiful. I'm glad you liked the picture too.
    I don't know what I expected clicking the link but that certainly wasn't it ahaha, it's strange and cute and funny at the same time.
