Duel Masters: Golden Best is the first DMEX pack in the OCG.


  • It is a reprint pack that contains 80 + 10 cards.
  • Each pack contains 5 cards based on a year period, and 2 "surprise" cards.
    • Each of these packs features a card used to represent the block that they were first printed in, as well as a new card based on an older card, and 3 reprints.
    • The surprise cards varies from pack to pack which can include Joecards, tip/advertisement cards detailing the sets of the corresponding year or Ultra Golden Cards instead.
    • Each box has 2 packs with Ultra Golden Cards.
  • They are each printed with the newer Card Frame.

Due to certain fan-favorite cards such as Redzone, Roaring Invasion being reprinted in this pack, previous nostalgic packs such as DMX-25 and DMX-26 had sold less in comparison.

Despite being a 15th anniversary pack, cards related to some key characters in the background story, such as Ryusei, Prin Prin, Katsudon or Izumo were not reprinted.
