New screen print by Dan Mumford on sale at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Tribute Art Show NYC

Konami and Gallery1988’s Yu-Gi-Oh! Tribute Art Show NYC kicks off tomorrow, October 3, and runs through October 6. What cool stuff will you see there? What can you buy? And what special guests will make an appearance? Here’s the full rundown!

This show will display the 50+ pieces of art first seen at the Los Angeles show in July, including Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi’s four special pieces. Additionally, the exhibition will unveil six new commissioned works, one of which is pictured above. This new piece by Dan Mumford will be available for purchase as a 24-by-18 inch screen print for $60. It is a limited edition of 150.

Furthermore, five popular works from the Los Angeles show will be available for purchase as limited edition giclee prints.

As of this writing, none of the screen prints from the Los Angeles show are available for sale on Gallery1988’s website any longer. Gallery1988 stated that Anthony Petrie’s Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon variant and Dan Mumford’s It’s time to duel. variant will now be on sale at the New York show. There’s no word yet whether the other remaining prints will be there too.

The art show will also have two enamel pins for sale. No pictures or price information is available as of this writing.

On Friday evening, the exhibition will host signings with artists Dan Mumford (at 6:30 p.m.) and Anthony Petrie (7:30 p.m.). Attendees who previously bought their art may bring them to be autographed. Prints and posters will also be available for purchase, while supplies last.

Then, on Saturday afternoon, four Yu-Gi-Oh! voice actors will be at the art show to sign autographs.

  • 2:00 p.m. – Dan Green (Yugi Muto, Tetsu Trudge)
  • 2:00 p.m. – Erica Schroeder (second Mai Valentine, Dark Magician Girl, Akiza Izinski)
  • 3:00 p.m. – Darren Dunstan (Maximillion Pegasus, Jean Michel Roget)
  • 3:00 p.m. – Jake Paque (Dumon, Playmaker)

Fans can bring their favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! item to be signed, or pick up a free commemorative character autograph card (Yugi, Dark Magician Girl, Pegasus, and Playmaker), while supplies last.

Despite what they said in last month’s episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! News, Daniel J. Edwards (Aigami) and Sam Black (Battle Beast) are not listed as guests. Will they still appear at the show?

Die-hard Yu-Gi-Oh! fans will definitely want to arrive at the art show early. The first 100 visitors each day will receive one of four collector’s buttons.

There is a different button for each day of the show.

When you’ve taken in all that the exhibition has to offer, be sure to head to New York Comic Con for some fun at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Extravaganza at Konami’s booth (#1321), where all of the activities are free. The booth will sell an exclusive poster and T-shirt based on Anthony Petrie’s Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon.

The poster measures 15 by 20 inches and costs $20, while the shirt is $25. The shirt will also be available at the art show.

If you’re willing to brave the NYCC crowds, you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a few other Yu-Gi-Oh! voice actors hanging out and participating in activities unrelated to Yu-Gi-Oh!. Veronica Taylor (Carly Carmine), Sean Schemmel (Professor Crowler), Marc Thompson (Duke Devlin), Clay Adams (Jesse Anderson), and Saskia Maarleveld (Yoko Sakaki) will all be attending NYCC.
