The UlforceVeedramon prize card was awarded to the top players of the DC-1 Grand Prix event that kicked off in September. Although there were other fantastic prize cards up for grabs, including the Veedramon and AeroVeedramon alt arts, it was the UlforceVeedramon, which was handed out to the top 8 players of each event, that really stole the show.
This card is an alternate art version of the SR version that came with the Special Booster 1.5, showing the Mega Digimon in a triumphant stance. UlforceVeedramon debuted in the Digimon Data Squad anime which only aired 48 episodes, making it the shortest of all Digimon anime series.
The art of this card was illustrated by Sasasi, who is just one of the many diverse artists who work on the Digimon TCG. Sasasi is incredibly talented at creating depth in his Digmon TCG artwork. Some of the best examples of this can be seen with Omnimon and Gallantmon from the Special Booster 1.0, BaoHuckmon, from the Double Diamond booster and the alternate art version of EmperorGreymon that will come with the Next Adventure booster releasing in March.

Because of the incredible rarity of this card, there have been limited sales of this card. The two near mint copies that sold on TCG Player on November 30th and December 11th both went for $1,025. Over on eBay, however, there were sales of $1100 and $1200 in November, while a seller accepted a best off of $1066 in December. The latest copy to sell on eBay went for $1,450 on January 6th, showing that the value of the card has risen in the past couple of months. There have been hardly any public sales of graded UlforceVeedramon Prize Cards, with the latest being a BGS 9 that sold for $1800 in November.
It’s not unusual for Tournament exclusive cards to overshadow those pulled from booster packs when it comes to the TCG value hierarchy. The reason for this is simply because there are far fewer top prize cards in existence compared to the SEC Alternate Arts found in boosters. These cards are difficult for those competing to earn, let alone non-competitive collectors trying to scout copies for their collection.
Another version of UlforceVeedramon came with Starter Deck 8, which also include the previous Digimon in its chain. Cards from this deck work with UlforceVeedramon BT2-03, strengthening the archetype. If you would like to learn more about this deck, click here.
