Why is the winged dragon of ra worthless?

The three "God Cards" were released as promotional material and tie-ins to the television show. They have nonstandard frames, no printed abilities, nonstandard creature types, and unusable ATK/DEF.
The intuitive answer is that they don't have printed abilities and thus can't be processed properly during a game.
The hard answer is that they are just not game-legal cards and are thus invalid in tournament play.
The result of this is that the card has no value in either a serious or casual game, and is thus worthless.
Winged Dragon of Ra has had a game-legal print too, and it is also fairly worthless due to being hard to summon and not very useful.
