EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (September 14, 2010) – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (Konami), the maker of the best-selling Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG), is bringing back some of the most revered booster packs and cards from the dawn of Dueling!

The Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Legendary Collection (MSRP $29.99) will combine six of the earliest booster packs, all three Egyptian God Cards, and the signature monsters of Yugi, Kaiba, and Joey, all in one package, for the first time ever on October 5.

Duelists who missed out on collecting the very first booster sets from 2002 will now have a chance to add cards from these booster sets to their collections.  The Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Legendary Collection, hitting shelves on October 5, will also include the must-have monster cards from the classic Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series: Blue-Eyes White Dragon, Dark Magician and Red-Eyes B.
