Limited Edition

Limited Edition is an edition of cards in the TCG, Korean OCG, and Asian-English OCG that is marked by the text "Limited Edition". It is not used in the Japanese, Japanese-Asian, and Chinese OCG.

On 1st Edition and Limited Edition cards, the Eye of Anubis Hologram is gold; on Unlimited Edition cards, it is silver.[1]


Limited Edition is primarily used for promotional cards. Some examples include Sneak Peek Participation Cards, Shonen Jump Championship Series Prize Cards and Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Prize Cards, Collectible Tin promotional cards (except 2003 Booster Pack Tins), and magazine promotional cards (such as the Shonen Jump promotional cards).

Rarely, some retail sets—such as the original Hidden Arsenal and TCG Gold Series sets (until Premium Gold)—are entirely Limited Edition. After their first print run, later print runs may be printed as Unlimited Edition.

Edition text[edit]

For Series 3 to 8 cards, the edition text (such as the text "Limited Edition") is located under the left side of the card's artwork.

From Series 9 onward, for cards without limitation text, the edition text is located to the right of the password (leaving a space for the password even if the card has none). For cards with limitation text other than Pendulum Monsters, the edition text is located in its previous position; Pendulum Monsters with limitation text do not have edition text.
