Ghosts from the past two starting to leak onto the market rumors are swirling around north american cases, two to three ghost rares per case.

On average european cases, zero to one ghost rares per case.

On average, we don't know if this is fact, this could all be fiction could be small sample size, but right now north american getting the heavier loaded cases than that of europe.

Also did, you know that pulling that one specific ghost rare, even with the increased odds and ratios are still ridiculously tough to pull stay tuned.

We have a whole presentation with mathematical concepts, we're going to go over right now in a world full of yukio cards, grading selling buying one card game remains supreme one man has the insights you need to know watch and subscribe now yu-gi-oh tube what's up youtube, yu-gi-oh tube here.

And if you look at this checklist, look at all these great cards, you got the dark magician.

Girl, cyber dragon red eyes, blue eyes, blue eyes, ultimate dark arm, eye of temmaeus wing, spear mode, red, dragon archfiend.

If you notice behind these cards, you have some ovals some blue ovals.

Why are some ovaled and some are not in my personal opinion.

And I think a lot of people will agree with me, but not all in my personal opinion, these nine ghost rares out of the nine.

Six are star heavy hitter cards, right? Six are just amazing heavy hitters, three of them compared to the other ones are duds.

I wouldn't say, they're, really duds.

But compared to these other cards, I would say that they are duds relatively speaking.

So what we are going to do here is figure out probability statistics, percentages ratios on how likely we are to hit some of these cards out of a box case or pack let's, go right into it.


Look at the first scenario where you have one ghost rare in the case.


So let's say, scenario, one, you got one ghost rare in your ghost from the past two case.

Okay, I know they said that it's double as likely, but let's just say you get one the odds of any ghost are one per case right? So you have a hundred percent shot of hitting a ghost.

The odds of ghosts per display box is ten percent, the odds of ghosts per pack or one in 200 packs, which comes out to just under one percent at half a percent.

So let's, just remember here.

Okay, you have a case.

Within the sealed case, you have 10 display boxes within the 10 display boxes.

You have 20 packs.

Remember they upped it to four packs per mini, which means you get 20 packs per display.

Okay, you have 20 packs per display box.

You have 10 display boxes per case.


So now, the odds of you hitting a ghost rare.

Any ghost rare is one in 200 packs.

Okay, if this were to be the case at one ghost rare per case, no pun intended.

So far.

So good, let's, move on the odds of a heavy hitter.

Okay, per case.

We already talked how in my opinion, a heavy hitter, uh, six out of the nine ghosts.

So in your favor actually are heavy hitters.

So you have more heavy hitters than duds.

Right? You have six out of nine of the ghosts are heavy hitters.

Three out of the nine are duds.

So the odds of a heavy hitter per case are simply six over nine, six divided by nine.

Sixty six point six percent if you had one ghost rare, in the case you have a sixty six point, six, seven percent chance about that.

It is going to be a good one, 33 it's, not gonna be a good one.

Okay, the odds of a specific ghost.

You want per case.

This is where things get interesting let's say, you're, a red eyes fan.

I love red eyes, black dragon amazing card.

I only wanted I'm a joey wheeler, simp.


So let's say, you want a red eyes only red eyes only and you're ripping open packs boxes and cases just to look for that one specific red eyes, right? The odds of you hitting that specific card that you want.

In the case is one out of nine or 11.11 percent.

Okay, let me repeat that one ghost rare is the one you want out of nine different ghost rares.

So if you have one ghost rare, in a case, you have a one in nine shot, one in nine k, shot to hit that one specific ghost rare, not good odds.

If you look down below it, okay, over here.

You've got one out of again.

This is approximation one out of 91 display boxes.

Uh, it should really be one out of nine display boxes, uh or 90.

I should say, okay, it should be one out of 90 approximately.

It comes out to about 1.1 percent.

If you were to get a display box, okay, let's say, you got a display box for 80 to 100 dollars expect to get that one specific card.

You want expect to rip on average, 90 display boxes to get that one specific ghost.

You want not good odds.

Now, the odds of a dud, okay, the odds of a dud, uh per display box.

Let's say, you buy a box your odds of hitting a dud ghost are about one in 30 display boxes.

And then the odds of hitting a heavy hitter, uh per your display box is one out of 15 display boxes.

Okay, the reason it's not one out of ten is because there's, no guarantee that the 10 box case is going to have the heavy hitter.

So when you average it all out by taking the six out of nine heavy hitter ghost rares, you multiply it by the ten percent odds, okay, because remember there's, ten boxes per case that comes out to one in 15 approximately display boxes.

And of course, the dud comes out to 1 in 30.

Now, the odds of a heavy hitter let's say, you buy packs you're, a pack gambler.

You say, I don't want to do boxes they're too expensive.

I don't want to do cases.

I want to do packs you open a pack.


So you take the odds or probability of getting a heavy hitter, which is six out of nine.

You take that percent.

Then you multiply it.

Okay, by the one over two hundred, which is the point five percent that gives you a point.

Three, three percent chance or approximately one in 304 pack odds of hitting a heavy hitter card.

This right here.

This should be a dud.

The odds of a dud per pack are three out of nine.

Okay, that's the odds of a dud you.

Multiply it by the odds of hitting any ghost rare, which is one out of two hundred.

You get .17, which comes out to one out of 589 packs folks, that's, right? You have a one in 304 pack chance to get a heavy hitter.

You have a 1 in 589 chance to get a dud ghost.

Now, the odds of one specific ghost.

You want okay, let's say, again, you want that red eyes and you're saying, I'm buying this pack.

And in this one single packet of cards, I'm gonna hope for red eyes.

Well, you better hope very very very be optimistic.

You better pray to the gods.

No pun intended, uh, not the god cards, but the gods because your odds of hitting one specific ghost rare.

Okay that you want you want that one specific one the odds of you hitting that not good.

You take the one out of nine for the ghost rare odds.


Then you multiply it by the one over 200 odds.

And now you're down to point zero, five, six percent comes out to one in seventeen hundred and eighty six packs.

So if you go to the store and they're selling ghosts from the packs a ghost from the past packs right, just keep in mind.

If you want one specific card like you're saying in my dream car, this is what I want expect the odds to be one in 1786 packs.

Now again, this is under the scenario that we have a one ghost rare case moving on to the two ghost rare case.

Okay, you're gonna notice the odds are definitely better actually they're cut in half.

So if you notice you see how down here, it was one in 1786 we're now down to one in 893 over here.

It was one in 589 down to one in 294 and a half over here with one per case, it's, one in 304 over here, it's one in 152 now, uh, the odds of getting any ghost rares.

One hundred percent, of course, if there's two in the case, the odds of getting any ghost riff per display box is one in two boxes or twenty percent the odds of any ghost rapper pack two and two hundred packs.

Okay? Remember before one in 200 packs over here, it's two and two hundred.

So now your your odds again, increase from point, five percent to one percent a one in a hundred shot.

Okay, here's where things get very interesting.

The odds of at least one heavy, hitter per case.


So let's say, you buy a case that goes from the past two.


You got two ghost rares.

In the case, let's say, someone's, saying, hey, there there's, a guarantee that.

In this case, you got two ghost rares, the odds of you getting one heavy hitter in that case.

Okay, one heavy hitter, which is one of those really six at least one.

I should say at least one heavy hitter, which is at least one of these six great ones.

Okay, it's going to be the probability of getting a ghost rare, plus the power probability of getting the heavy hitter ghost rare.

Again, you subtract the intersection of that, okay, which is the multiplication of the odds of getting the heavy hitter times the odds of getting a heavy hitter again, I'm not going to get too detailed with this.

But it comes out to 88.8 percent.


So if you were to buy a case and someone says, hey, guaranteed in here, you got two ghosts all right? You have an 88.8 chance that you're gonna hit one of those big six at least one of those big six, which is pretty darn good right? The odds of getting at least one dud per case.

Also it's about 55.5 percent.


So just keep that in mind and I'm, not going to get too deep into this math here, the odds of one specific ghost.

You want.

Okay? Remember how over here is about one in nine cases, I should actually say it's about one in four and a half cases.

Okay, the odds of getting one specific ghost.

You want per case about one in four and a half cases, the odds of getting a heavy hitter per display box.

Let's say, you buy a random box, let's say, there's, two ghost rares per case.

Now, one in every seven and a half display boxes, you'll get a heavy hitter.

One out of every 15 display boxes.

You get a dud, ironically again, because there are fewer duds than heavy hitters in the set.

The odds of you actually getting a dud are harder than the odds of you getting a heavy hitter, which is really crazy stuff.

And then finally the odds of getting a specific ghost.

You want per display box.

Let's say, you buy a box on average there's, two ghost rares per case, you're down to about one in 40 and a half boxes of hitting that which is still not great, but it's it's better than it was.

And this is probably seeing what we see online the more likely scenario that we're looking with if you need more, if you want more, let me know I'm thinking of posting this on

But I hope this helped I hope this put some math into perspective for you.

And I hope you are happy hunting when it comes to ghost rares and goes from the past too looking forward to more content coming out until next time, please comment like subscribe hit the bell button.
