Investing Opportunity – Summer OTW Cards
The highly anticipated Winter OTW cards will be released on Friday, February 2nd and last through the week/weekend. EA will promote both tradable and untradable SBCs related to the event. Here is how you can best profit off of this coming weekend.
FIFA ’17 Summer OTW Cards
As I mentioned, EA will release four SBCs for the event this weekend – 1) a tradable summer OTW SBC, 2) an untradable summer OTW SBC, 3) a tradable winter OTW SBC, and 4) an untradable winter OTW SBC. With so many highly expensive/highly desired OTW players out there (Neymar, Salah, Mbappe, Ederson, Walker, Aubameyang, Sanchez), you can be sure that the FIFA community will be in a frenzy completing these challenges. As they are completed, the supply of OTW cards hitting the market outweighs the demand, resulting in prices dropping substantially.
Shown below are both Mane and Dembele’s OTW graphs from FIFA ’17. Notice that they bottomed on Sunday only to increase dramatically in the following two weeks.
These cards greatly increased for 3 reasons:
- They were due for upgrades during the Ratings Refresh event.
- They were OP players that were massively popular to use in game.
- They had breakout games in the weeks that followed (Mane earned a spot in TOTW 22).
While we can’t predict which players will have breakout games for FIFA ’18 OTW, we can take a look at which players are due for upgrades and OP.
FIFA ’18 Summer OTW Cards
Neymar, Mbappe, and Salah all are likely to get upgrades in a few weeks. In addition, they are some of the most rapid players in the game, making them some of the most widely used. I would keep an eye on their prices this weekend and look to buy on Sunday if you have the funds.
