ROI: XBOX 66% PS4 50% PC 90%

Reasoning for Investment: When TOTS comes, EA have a tendency to require TOTS cards for SBCs, and often times they continue to require them even after the promo ends. The cut in supply and continued demand for the cards often results in steady price increases. This was the case in both FIFA 20 and FIFA 21.

A 50%+ ROI is great, but these cards actually went much higher 2 weeks following the end of the TOTS promo, with many rising to 40k+. When TOTS comes in FIFA 22, keep that in mind as a club stock of discard TOTS cards is a smart strategy.
