Booster 1 was released on March 1, 1999 as one of the very first Booster Packs in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game—preceded only by Vol.1, which was released the month prior. Like all Series 1 sets, Booster 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. Like the other Booster sets, Booster 1 was distributed via Carddass vending machines.

Five of the cards in this set were reprinted from Vol.1; the other 35 cards were introduced to the OCG in this set, two of which it introduced to the entire franchise. All but 17 of the cards have been reprinted in Japanese, and only 14 of them have been printed in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game and 25 have never been printed in the tcg.


Booster 1 contains 40 cards. Rarities are distributed as follows:

The following card types are present:

The set also contains six non-playable FAQ Cards.

Previously featured cards

Booster 1 introduced two cards, "Blue Medicine" and "Raimei", to the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise; the other 38 cards were previously featured in the manga, anime, video games, or other real-life games or products:


Booster 1 reprinted the five Equip Spell Cards from Vol.1; the other 35 cards were introduced in this set. 17 of those cards have been reprinted in Japanese: one card in EX Starter Box and EX-R Starter Box, 16 cards in Booster R1 and three cards in Booster Chronicle, and two cards in other sets later. 14 cards have been printed in the TCG.
