How rare are these cards?



You need a little help here.
#1, I don't know what possessed little kids to throw out the established rarity terms for their own half-assed ones, but "silver name" is a very poor choice- especially in this case. Many of the cards you listed as "silver name" are not Normal Rare (the proper rarity)- their lettering is either gold(Ultra) or holofoil (fake Secret rare, AKA Promo rare), not silver, so they are Ultra Rares or above.

#2, this regards another poorly chosen term kids use for card rarity "holo," which is short for 'holofoil' and refers to the gaudy shine on the graphic. Unfortunately, kids aren't exactly experts at basic things like spelling. It's "holo," not "hollow." Hollow refers to something that is empty and/or has nothing inside it, like say all tins and Structure decks I find torn apart whenever I go looking for cards at Walmart.

#3, You're mislabeling a lot of these by combining terms. For example, there is no such thing as a Normal Rare (silver name) card with a holofoil graphic (hollow). All Normal Rares have silver lettering and a non-holofoil graphic.

#4, I'm confused by what you mean by "a pack." You claim to have gotten a Black Magician Girl and a Blue Eyes White Dragon from 'a pack.' That's impossible, neither of those cards are sold in booster packs(at least not anymore and good luck finding an LOB pack with a Blue Eyes inside)- the closest thing I can think of are collectible tins and those aren't really worth much of anything.



Dark magician girl, silver name, hollow, new pic, got from pack
Considering the fact that it has a "new pic," I'm assuming this is the alternate art BMG that was in last year's tin.
I don't know what the market value is, but I wouldn't pay more than about $5 or $6 for one.



Red-eyes darkness dragon, Gold name, hollow, traded for it
Structure deck "Rare" cards are about as rare as my fingernail clippings. I say $2


Blue-eyes white dragon, silveriesh name, hollow, got from pack
Another tin idol; unfortunately, Blue Eyes has been in, I believe 2 tins. That makes it difficult to gauge the value of the card without knowing which year's tin it came from.



Dimension fusion, Silver name, hollow, traded for it
Another mislabeled Ultra Rare; Dimension Fusion is probably the most valuable card you have in this group. Again, I'm not sure what it's worth, but if I REAAALLY wanted one, I'd pay at least $10.



Different Dimension Gate, silver name, traded for it
Finally a proper Normal Rare. This card isn't really worth much, maybe $2 or $3.



Infernal Flame Emperor, Golden name, hollow, traded for it
Another common as water Structure Deck "Rare."
I say $2



Blue eyes ultimate, not sure where it came from, found in my room, Silver name, hollow, mint condition
This would be Shonen Jump USA's promo BEUD. You either got this from their magazine, the crappy blister-packed ripoff set that Walmart has been selling, or traded with a friend for it.
I've seen people overcharging through the nose for this pantload, but based on that, I'd set the value of this card at $7.



King Dragun, hollow
Nice card and all, but not really worth much. I got one for cheap (I think $10) about a year ago, it's probably worth about half that by now...
