Unboxing: Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles

The second piece of an ancient legend stands before you! The 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles builds (literally!) on the foundation of the 2020 Tin of Lost Memories, featuring the middle section of the mysterious Pharaonic tablet discovered in Egypt! (Most Duelists never noticed, but the 2020 tins, and now the 2021 tins, have embossed/debossed sides, and rimless lids that fit flush with the tin body, allowing the tins to be stacked on top of each other to build the entire Pharaonic tablet once all three pieces have been assembled!) The eternal clash between the spirits of the Dark Magician and the Blue-Eyes White Dragon are immortalized in this carving, along with 3 brand-new World Premiere cards to give these monsters a new power boost. Like the 2020 Tin, each 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles will contain 3 extra-large Mega-Packs, each with 1 Prismatic Secret Rare, 2 Ultra Rares, 2 Super Rares, 1 Rare, and 12 Commons!

We open up the tin and what’s inside and you can get a chance to see what you might get!
