Vol.1, short for Volume 1, is a Core Booster that was released on February 4, 1999[1] as the first set in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game. Like all Series 1 sets, Vol.1 cards used the Series 1 card layout, distinguished from later layouts by the lack of a Card Number beneath the card's artwork and the Eye of Anubis Hologram in its lower-right corner.

All but 15 cards have been reprinted in Japanese, and all but seven ("Archfiend Mirror", "Candle of Fate", "Eyearmor", "Fiend's Hand", "Hitodenchak", "LaLa Li-oon", "The Drdek") have been printed in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game.

Vol.1 was reprinted as part of the 20th Anniversary Set. This reprint was similar to the much earlier Studio Dice version of some other Series 1 sets in using the copyright notice of later series, but unlike those sets, this reprint also included the Eye of Anubis Hologram on the cards.


Vol.1 contains 40 cards. The rarities are distributed as follows:

The following card types are present:

Previously featured cards[edit]

Vol.1 introduced two cards, "Fissure" and "Trap Hole", to the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise; the other 38 cards were previously featured in the manga, Toei anime, video games, or other real-life games or products:


25 Vol.1 cards have since been reprinted in Japanese: five cards in Booster 1, nine cards in EX Starter Box and EX-R Starter Box, and 23 cards in Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon.
