Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon auction ended at ¥1,200,000

A copy of this Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon‎ was sold for ¥1,200,000 on Yahoo! Auction in 2012, making this one of the most expensive tournament-legal Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG card.

However, the one on display is unlikely to be one of the two copies that was given out back in 1999, but rather a prototype test print that Konami has been keeping.
