2004 Shonen Jump Championship Cyber-Stein
This card, as outlined over at runrex.com, is inspired by the monster in Frankenstein, and while there are many commonplace versions of the card, the tournament award edition of the card is the one worth some significant cash. It was awarded at the Shonen Jump Championship, as well as few other tournaments thereafter.

On the 28th of October, 2020, a PSA 10 graded copy of this card sold for $30,100 on eBay, taking the number 3 position on this list.
2002 Blue Eyes White Dragon 1st Edition
At number 2 is arguably the most iconic card associated with the entire Yugioh franchise. This card, as per the gurus over at guttulus.com, is popular not only for its strength in the trading card game – fusing three of them together will produce Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon – but also because of its powerful appearances in the original anime and manga. The first of these cards were released in Japan in 1999, and the US soon after, and mint condition 1st editions are skyrocketing in value. This is why it is no surprise that a PSA 10 copy of this card sold for $85,100 on the 28th of October, 2020.
Tournament Black Luster Soldier
This card is easily the most valuable Yugioh card on this list, blowing the rest of the other cards out of the water with its eye-watering value. As captured in discussions over at runrex.com, it was an exclusive prize card awarded at the first-ever Yugioh tournament in 1999. It is also printed on stainless steel, and is the only one of its kind, making it extremely rare, and essentially priceless. Those who have listed it for sale (with only rumors confirming amounts trading hands) have asked for amounts in the millions, and it is safe to say that anyone who lucks into this card has essentially hit the Yugioh lottery. The most significant transaction as far as this card is concerned was for $2 million (reportedly) in 2013.
