Yu-Gi-Oh! Wiki

Vol.1, short for Volume 1, is a Booster Pack 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.

In addition to being the first set in the OCG, Vol.1 introduced two cards that were not in the Bandai series. All but 15 cards have been reprinted in Japanese, and all but seven of them have been printed in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game.


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

The following card types are present:

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, 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. All but ten cards have since been printed in the TCG.
