A unique letter with an emotional story
Now, to know why Tyler The Great Warrior is so rare, it is important to know its origin. It turns out that it is a unique card within the world of [i]Yu-Gi-Oh![/i] since it was created to make a child’s dream come true.
It was in the year 2001 when Tyler Gressle, owner of Tyler The Great Warrior, was diagnosed with a very rare and dangerous type of liver cancer. To be saved, he had to undergo several surgeries and spend a lot of time in the hospital.

Tyler Gressle’s situation is one no child should be put through. This is why the Make-A-Wish Foundation decided to help him make one of his dreams come true in order to fill him with illusion. He was a huge fan of Yu-Gi-Oh! back then, so his wish was to create a card with an original character based on him.
So, Gressle created the original sketches for Tyler The Great Warrior, which were used by Kazuki Takahashi, creator of Yu-Gi-Oh! to design the final letter. Konami then manufactured it and delivered it to Gressle some time later.
