Investment: Black Friday Flips
Black Friday begins tomorrow (see this calendar for the expected release schedule). For the event, there will be many flash SBCs. As people are on the clock, they often overspend, and some cards shoot up in price.
The cards that most often rise have a few characteristics:
- They have decent ratings (78-82)
- They are non-rare
- They have good nations in popular leagues from which they aren’t from
The following are a few of my favorite looks who check at least a few of those boxes:
Mario Götze: PS4 1k XBOX 1k PC 1k
Ever Banega: PS4 1k XBOX 1k PC 1k
Marc Roca: PS4 1k XBOX 1k PC 1k
Dani Olmo: PS4 1k XBOX 1k PC 1k
Juan Bernat: PS4 1k XBOX 1k PC 1k
Benjamin Pavard: PS4 1k XBOX 1k PC 1k
Odriozola: PS4 1k XBOX 1k PC 1k
Alvaro: PS4 1k XBOX 1k PC 1k
Look to sell sometime this weekend. I don’t have profit targets listed because it is impossible to know what they could go up to. Just monitor their prices and sell when you are happy with the profit.
What do you think of Llorente? I bought a bunch of him since he’s going to be in signature signings and he is kinda meta so I imagine people will want to buy him for their weekend league teams.
The only thing that I wonder is how long they will be out of packs for. Considering Best of TOTW Team 1 is only in packs until Saturday, they might do something weird where Signature Signings Team 1 is only in packs for a couple days. I’m waiting to get confirmation of how long they will be out of packs before suggesting any investments related to those.
Is it better to sell my stones to get these players?
I’d say these guys have a better chance of rising today than Stones, but Stones is still a decent look, too. Diversifying is usually a good strategy.
What do you think of Acerbi and Portu? Last year Acerbi was the most expensive 83 fodder at this time of the year and Portu looks safe because he is quick sell value atm.
They aren’t as unique since Acerbi is Italian in the Serie A, and Portu is Spanish in La Liga. Still think they could do well, but don’t see them shooting up for Flash SBCs, really.
