This listing is for a PSA 9 MINT 1st edition double-misprinted Dark Magician glossy variant from the first ever set, Legend of Blue-Eyes White Dragon. The double misprint is described as follows. The color of the card is faded (please refer to the last photo to compare it to its normal glossy counterpart). Notice how the misprint is greenish/yellowish in hue.I have seen this other times in wavy LOB cards and it is indeed an extremely rare and peculiar misprint. However, I have never before seen it in a glossy variant. The holofoil has a transition. It looks as if there are 2 separate holofoil partitions in the artwork of the card, with each partition discontinuously having its own pattern of reflection. There are competing theories for how these misprints could have come about.
My personal opinion is that the faded color was caused by ink running low and that the holofoil transition was caused by the switching of the holofoil reel. In any case, clearly the quality control at that time was not yet advanced enough to prevent these types of misprints from being released. But whatever the truth is, it's evident that these specific misprints are only present from the earliest sets ever printed in YuGiOh. To find one misprint on a card is rare enough, but to have both present on an iconic card like Dark Magician that has been certified mint is nothing short of extraordinary.
This collectible will appeal to fans of olschool YuGiOh who are looking to add a cool looking one-of-a-kind card to their collection. If you are going to make an offer on this card, please be absolutely 100% confident that you will pay should I accept your offer.
