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 to the entire franchise. All but 15 cards have been reprinted in Japanese, and all but ten 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:
