I’ve always been a fan of the duelist tin product from both a retailer’s and a consumer’s point of view. Why you ask? Value, this product has solid value to it and what means is you as the consumer get great value for your dollar. Let’s take a look at one of the tins (along with pictures of the tin I’m opening for this post).




As you can see you get several things in the tin:

Let’s look at pure value here, the empty tin ($0.00), three Yusei 3 packs ($1.99 x3 = 6), one pack of Duelist Revolution ($8.99) & the Promo Cards ($10.00 total).

So we are looking at a total value here of $25.00 as of this writing (give or take some pennies). That’s amazing value for a tin that costs just $11.99!


Now you have these packs, you can trade them for cards, or sell them or you can do what you really want to do and open them! Here goes nothing!

Yes as you can see I didn't exactly break any records for quality pulls out of these packs, but let’s examine what I did get:

x1 Scrap Beast – $1.50
x1 Majestic Star Dragon - $.99
x2 Amazoness Village – $1.99
x1 D.D. Unicorn Knight - $.50
x1 Big One Warrior - $.99
+ Many Commons
Total Value: $8.00 (Give or take some pennies)

Ahh the fun of cracking packs, you win some, you lose some. I guess I’ll get that Pot of Duality next time.
So there you have it: Duelist Tins = Great Value, even if your luck opening packs is as bad as mine.

Exit, stage left!
