Reasoning for Investment: While many people focus on Champions League when it comes to RTTF cards, the Europa League & Conference League and are frequently overlooked. This is a shame, as UEL and UECL tend to be more reliable investments than that of CL. They are cheaper as well, and this offers better ROI potential as more people can afford these cards; not everyones budget can muster a 1m+ coin Sadio Mane CL RTTF card. An investment in a cheaper alternative like UECL Smalling is more achievable to the masses.
