Default Ghost Rare Pull Rates

So I've been around online a bit and I keep seeing different figures for ghost rare rarities. I've seen anywhere from 1:36 packs to 1:30 boxes to 1:36 boxes, but nothing completely concrete. I've been playing YGO for a year now ever since Ghost rare was around, and I've only pulled one (Honest from LODT in Twilight Edition), and I've opened maybe 300-450 packs (very rough estimate, likely way off), but I've seen people pull ghost rares before with somewhat high frequency (close to secret rare frequency) and seen people with several of them in their collection.

Is there any solid, 100% confirmed ratio for Ghost Rares? And if you respond with a figure, please post the source. Giving an estimate based on your own experience won't cut it since we all found out how wrong the 1:24 Secret Rare ratio was.

In my experiences, I've generally seen one per case (1:12 boxes, or 1:288 packs).

Honestly I'm kind of surprised how cheap they are for as rare as they are. I've only ever gotten one and that was when I first came back. Only one other friend of mine has ever pulled a ghost.

Depends on what ghost rare. Some goes rare are easier to get that the other. Like the box says, ratio are not guarantee... So the ghost rare that you didn't pull from 450 packs will be spread to other locations.

Oh, and you said you opened 300-450 packs, seperate packs? or Packs from unopened box or special editions? If you just randomly opened that many packs than just having bad luck.

I've owned three and pulled all three. If you know me then you know that I buy maybe 5 packs a year. If that many. I guess what I'm trying to say is it's all lucked base. Also I pulled all three out of blister packs. Idk if that affects anything at all but that's what it was. I pulled ghost honest stardust and ehero neos they only one I still have is sd.

they put figures on it, but I think the odds are a little better than they say. out of 8 boxes I have purchased I have gotten 4 ghosts. 1 powertool, 1 stardust, 1 honest and 1 blackrose(never got a ultra or ulti though >.<). I have seen quite a few pulled at my store as well, so they aren't as rare as the numbers make them look.

Default Odds of Ghost Rare

Just as JDGloom says, about 1 in 288, generally one per sealed case.

It's only one per case? I thought it was per box, or they'd be WAY more valuable.

Ghost Rares not Secrets.

Glad I have my Honest if these are the ratios.
But it will make getting the Ghost and Holographic Rare Rainbow Dragons a little harder.
Not so much the Ultra.

No way are they one peer case. They would be far more expensive.

Let's not forget all the stories of people pulling several ghost Honests in a single pack.
If true, that would mean more on the market and less of a demand.

The entire reason that ghosts aren't expensive is due to fairly easy to get reprints (especially cards like Stardust Dragon and Black Rose, who did threaten massive numbers before the reprint was availuable.)

Honest is easily among the best example of this, despite being an arguabally less important ghost compared to black rose (during the synchro kitty era btw), honest's price was substantially higher due to a lack of reprint.

Case point, availuability plays a MUCH bigger impact on a cards value than usefulness.

Red Dragon Archfiend and Cyber Dragon need Ghost reprints.
Or a "misprint" Ghost Red Dragon in a second TDGS run.

The reprints are irrelavent. I can easily get about 20 Smahsing ground for a few quid but 1 super rare one costs far far more.

It's funny how rare booster pack cards and promo cards that get a easy to get reprint, usually face a huge drop in value. Yet many holo reprints of common cards are very pricy.

And I raise the point to where: what if smashing ground was only a CP holo?

CP holo and short print common.
Because the Ghosts don't only come in Ghost.

I know Smashing has been reprinted a few times.
This is just for the quote.
