The FF TCG is home to a number of valuable chase cards that are sought after by collectors and players. Among these is the Full Art Meia 9-095L card that came with Opus IX: Lords & Chaos. Meia is not only one of the most expensive cards of the set but is also among the most valuable cards that can be pulled from a booster pack.

Meia is a character from Mobius Final Fantasy, whose story is one forged in tragedy. After falling in love with a previous Warrior of Light, Meia tried to distance herself from him so that she didn’t go against the prophecy. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out and the two were killed on a bridge with their bodies falling into the waters below. Somehow, Meia was resurrected as the Azure Witch who could now see Echoes just like Wol, a character she meets after killing Voyd. In Mobius, the two fight but Wol overpowers her and chooses to let her live – later journeying together to free Palamecia from its cycle of hope.
The Meia 9-095L (Full Art) Legend card came with Opus IX: Lords & Chaos, which was released on July 13th, 2019. The set was composed of 48 Commons, 36 Rares, 26 Heroes, 14 Legends and 140 Premium cards. Meia is one the most valuable cards pulled from this set, with the Chocobo (Full Art) and Gabranth EX (Full Art) being the other valuable cards, holding a guide value price of $60 and $115 on TCG Player respectively.
Those who bought an entire booster box of the set got an exclusive box topper which was a full-art foil card of Nael van Darnus from Final Fantasy XIV. When this booster was first released, box toppers were hadn’t been around long, only starting two sets previous with Opus VII.
On TCG Player, Meia 9-095L (Full Art) has been selling for $131. In November 2021, this card was selling for around $110 on the website, which does show a nice value increase.
Although there haven’t been many graded copies of the full art version, a BGS 9 standard version of Meia 9-095L did sell in January for $125 after a best offer on eBay was accepted.
The artwork of this card is striking, to say the least. Meia 9-095L (Full Art) was completed by Toshiyuki Itahana, an esteemed character designer and game director at Square Enix. Itahana’s art has featured in Final Fantasy IX, Crystal Chronicles and the Chocobo spin-off series. Itahana has also directed two other games while working with Square Enix – Code Age Commanders, which was released on the PS2 in 2005, and FF Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers for the Nintendo Wii.
