One Piece is a manga and television series comprised of over 100 volumes and 1,000 TV episodes. Creator Eiichiro Oda has built an animated universe with beloved characters and artwork. And now, the worldwide fandom of the show can extend into the One Piece trading card game.

One Piece’s TCG works like most others: there are character, stage, and event cards equipped with special perks. Additionally, the game contains a leader card, which is the centerpiece of the deck. Players can also utilize “Don!!” cards to pay the cost of implementing leader cards or to boost a card’s ability.

So far, Bandai has released one booster product called “Romance Dawn” as well as four starter deck boxes. With a limited production run and few in circulation, these cards are some of the most sought-after TCGs currently.

Today, we are going to break down the 10 highest sales for this hit manga. For the purpose of this list, we are only allowing each card to appear once. Let’s dive right in and highlight the best cards of the One Piece TCG!

1. Shanks 2022' One Piece' Romance Dawn Alternate Art #120 BGS 10 Black Label: $13,000

ONE PIECE Romance Dawn Shanks

Shanks is an important and pivotal character in the One Piece franchise. He is one of the 30 character cards in the "Romance Dawn" booster set and one of four to have a variation. The alternate art shown above, commonly known as the “Manga Shanks,” is the most valuable of the entire product.

Whether it’s sports cards or TCGs, condition is key. Grading is a quintessential facet of the hobby, and no grade is more heralded than the BGS 10 Black Label. Couple that with the rarity of the “Manga Shanks,” and you can understand how it reached a sale price of $13,000.

2. Roronoa Zero 2022 'One Piece' Championship Promo #013 ESG 10: $12,112

ONE PIECE Roronoa Zoro

Next, we have the sword-wielding Roronoa Zero, an essential member of Monkey D. Luffy’s crew. This particular full art card stems from a Japanese championship promo set, which makes them extremely limited in production. This card was slabbed by Esports Grading, a Singapore-based grading group. It received a perfect gem mint 10 and sold for over $12,000 in October 2022.

3. Monkey D. Luffy 2022 'One Piece' Flagship Battle Event Victory Souvenir /500 BGS 10: $11,650

2022 One Piece Flagship Battle Event Victory Souvenir Monkey D Luffy

This card, which features the first appearance of the beloved Monkey D. Luffy, was distributed to the victors of a recent flagship tournament. Limited to only 500 copies, this promo is one of the rarer cards on this list. Given how recently these sets were released, this is one that we can see holding its value well over time. International markets have not had much time to set and scale the One Piece TCG, so it will be interesting to see how it grows in the next year.

4. Usopp 2022 'One Piece' Championship Promo #P-004 ESG 10: $5,100

ONE PIECE  Usopp Championship Esports

Here is another promo that hasn’t even hit the States. Usopp, dubbed “The King of Snipers” by fans, is another unforgettable character in the One Piece universe. The card above also received a coveted ESG 10 grade, which helped it reach its final sale price of $5,100. 

5. Monkey D. Luffy 2022 'One Piece' Championship Promo #P-001 BGS 10 Black Label: $4,950

BGS 10 Black Label ONE PIECE Monkey D Luffy Promo

The Luffy card featured above is one of several promotional variants from the 2022 championship events. Based on the current market, the #001 copy holds the highest value. It features impeccable full artwork of Luffy, and it sold for nearly $5,000 in 2022.

6. Portgas D. Ace 2022 'One Piece' Romance Dawn Alternate Art #013 ESG 10: $3,950

One Piece Portgas D Ace Parallel Manga

This card of Portgas D. Ace has a similar design and eye appeal to the Manga Shanks, as they were both alternate arts in the Romance Dawn release. The stunning drawings give collectors an idea of Ace’s character before they even delve into the series, which is a testament to the One Piece TCG as a whole.

7. Tony Tony Chopper 2022 'One Piece' Flagship Battle Event Promos Alternate Art BGS 10 Black Label: $3,800

2022 One Piece Flagship Battle Event Promos Tony Chopper Art

Just like the Monkey D. Luffy card at #3, this Tony Tony Chopper copy was also handed out as a souvenir at the flagship battle event. If competitors reached the best of eight in their competitions, they were rewarded with this promo. While the exact print run is unknown, it is most likely in the same range as the Luffy from earlier (~500).

8. Nami 2022 'One Piece' Romance Dawn Alternate Art #016 BGS 10 Black Label: $2,425

BGS Black Label 10 2022 One Piece Romance Dawn Japanese Nami Alternate Art

At number eight, we have the first appearance from Nami, another cherished character in the series. Nami only has two cards in the Romance Dawn set, a base copy, and this alternate art. The gem above graded as a BGS Black Label and sold for over $2,400 in September 2022.

9. Monkey D. Luffy 2022 'One Piece' Super Pre-Release Promo Winner PSA 10: $2,000


This card also stems from a promotional 4-card pack where lucky winners received a Luffy pre-release card. Some of the early pulls were quickly sent to PSA, and they have sold as high as $2,000 earlier this year. It is doubtful that Bandai will re-release these promo packs, so it will be interesting where the market will sit for this card.

10. Monkey D. Luffy 2022 'One Piece' Romance Dawn Alternate Art #24 BGS 10 Black Label: $1,625

BGS 10 Black Label ONE PIECE Monkey D Luffy Alt Art

Finally, we have Luffy’s Japanese alternate art from Romance Dawn. It is rumored that the Manga Shanks has a pull rate of one in six cases, so this card is likely on a similar rate. This BGS 10 sold as high as $1,625, marking another solid sale for the One Piece protagonist.
