Thanks for your question. we do not know what happened but we missed the Soumodeep question. Usually we answer in less than 24 hours but this one was a bit more. 🙂
This article is about all the FUT cards. The pictures are for FUT 12 but the cards are almost the same.
We think that for “these cards” you mean the In Form cards (blue, orange, purple and black). You can get them on any pack. Just pay attention that they have specific released times. For example: the orange (MOTM) usually are released in packs only for 24 hours and black ones (TOTW) for one week.


Hi! How does one know when the release times for these special cards are up? Is it e.g. only once a year for a week, or does each player come in different weeks? And how will you know when that is? Thank you:) hugs from a noob:)


What about pink cards? I saw someone with a pink Rafael Marquez in their sub bench and it confused me.
