5 Most Expensive Dark Magician Girl Yu-Gi-Oh Cards

most valuable dark magician girl yugioh cards

Dark Magician Girl is known as one of Yugi’s two main ace monsters in the Yu-Gi-Oh anime, often partnering with Dark Magician himself to make extremely powerful attacks.

If you ever ask a fan of Yu-Gi-Oh to name Yugi’s cards, it’s likely that they name Dark Magician Girl as one of the first cards they think of, but traditionally it’s not a card that’s really used in modern Yu-Gi-Oh, even in the Dark Magician deck.

Something about the lack of payoff for summoning it has prevented people from using it enough to make it at all relevant, but thanks to the exposure that the card received in both the anime and the manga there are a few versions of it that are actually worth a decent amount of money and are considered collectors editions.

So, let’s take a look at the most expensive Dark Magician Girl Yu-Gi-Oh cards of the year!

Dark Magician Girl (2005 Collectors Tin Promo)

This printing of Dark Magician Girl is one of the earliest ever printings of the card in the TCG and features artwork that you don’t really see in Yu-Gi-Oh anymore, with the only other printing of this artwork appearing in common rarity in Yugi’s Legendary Decks.

This printing, however, is a secret rare and with that is one of the best-looking versions of Dark Magician Girl overall, but that also increases the price a fair amount. 

If you want to get your hands on this version of Dark Magician Girl then you’re looking at anything between $40 to $60, meaning that you’ll be spending a pretty penny.

Still, it’s worth it just to see this near-unique artwork in person. 

Dark Magician Girl (Lost Art Promo)

Dark Magician Girl (Lost Art Promo Cards)

The Lost Art Promo cards were printings of classic cards that had been censored in their original printings over in the TCG. These included cards such as:

  • Barrel Dragon
  • Celestia, Lightsworn Angel
  • Dark Ruler Ha Des
  • Exodia The Forbidden One
  • Foolish Burial
  • Monster Reborn
  • Super Rejuvenation

And a whole lot more. These tend to be some of Yu-Gi-Oh’s most famous (or in some cases, infamous) cards, and one of them was Dark Magician Girl herself.

Printed back in both 2020 and 2021 as part of the Lost Art promotion that you could only get by spending a certain amount of money at an official OTS store, this printing of Dark Magician Girl features the character riding on a broomstick in an illustration that was originally designed for the OCG 2008 Anniversary Pack, but never saw the light of day over here until the LART printings. These printings will cost you anything between $40 and $75

Dark Magician Girl (Legendary Collection 3: Yugi’s World 1st Edition)

Dark Magician Girl (Legendary Collection 3: Yugi's World)

There are two versions of this printing of Dark Magician Girl from the Legendary Collection 3: Yugi’s World set had over 300 cards and was first printed all the way back in 2012.

It featured the very first legal release of The Seal of Orichalcos from the aptly-named Orichalcos arc of the original Yu-Gi-Oh anime, though this one doesn’t force the soul out of your opponent if they lose. 

One of the cards printed as a secret rare in this set was Dark Magician Girl, and even in Unlimited printings it still costs a small fortune.

If you want the 1st edition of the card, then you’re looking at over $200, and if you’re not willing to drop that much money on a piece of cardboard and want the cheaper version of the card, then you’re still looking at around 100 dollars or above.

While this might seem extremely expensive, it’s actually only the third most expensive variant of the card on this list. 

Dark Magician Girl (Duelist League Colorful Rares)

Dark Magician Girl (Duelist League Colorful Rares)

Okay so, this one is a little weird. You can actually get the Duelist League Colorful Rare printings of Dark Magician Girl fairly cheap if you’re willing to settle for a variant art, in which case you’ll be spending as little as a dollar on the card. However, if you want the most famous art printing of the card then you’re looking at a little more.

First, a bit of backstory. The Duelist League existed from 2010 to 2014 and was a local league system that didn’t go as far as Konami hoped it would. Promo cards were given away for each league that was run, which included the Dark Magician Girl herself.

The issue here is that there are not many stores that actually did the Duelist League, and this makes finding copies of the cards extremely difficult.

Dark Magician Girl was printed in four different colorful rares Purple, Green, Red, and Blue. Red and Blue are the aforementioned cheaper variants of the cards that will only really set you back around a dollar at most, but the purple and green variants are different.

You’re looking at around $200 for both variants of the card, and that makes collecting them as a set is extremely pricey overall. 

Dark Magician Girl (Secret Rare Magician’s Force 1st Edition)

Dark Magician Girl (Magician's Force)

The most expensive card on this list probably won’t surprise you, as it’s the very first printing of Dark Magician Girl. It’s the 1st edition version of the card that was printed in the Magician’s Force set and can cost a lot of money depending on the quality of the card itself.

Graded copies of the card can cost a small fortune, but the original secret rare printing that is ungraded will still cost you as much as $300, making it an eyewatering expense for even the biggest Yu-Gi-Oh fan. 

It’s one of the most popular cards in the game for a reason, and the biggest chase card for collectors of Dark Magician Girl herself, so if you’re a fan you’ll probably want this card, but you’ll have to save for a long time to get it.

If you can get your hands on it, then you should absolutely get it graded as this can increase the value by up to three times depending on the quality and PSA of the grading itself.
