Reasoning for Investment: History tends to repeat itself in a lot of ways when it comes to FUT. Whether it comes to promo releases, SBC requirements, or specific cards, EA often recycles content from previous years.
Inform Walker was a moneymaker for us several times in FIFA 21, but the initial investment was based around his eerily similar FIFA 20 TOTW Moments card; both his position and stats were more or less the same. That investment performed very well in FIFA 20 after going OOP, so it was no surprise that he did so well in FIFA 21, especially considering the lack of comparable quality CBs so early in the game.
Always refer back to old FUTBIN data when assessing an investment, even if it means going deep in the archives!
