FIFA 18 St Patricks Day Cards Prices
What happens to the St Patricks Day cards’ prices?
The FIFA 18 green cards will be more expensive as soon as they are released.
Many Irish players increase in price a few days before the St Patricks Day SBC starts. Specific players will more than double in price, so investing early can make you a lot of FIFA 18 coins. Remember to sell before the promotion actually starts. The best time to buy Irish players is during the TOTY but beware as players are starting to invest earlier and earlier. Even some of the cheapest non-rares increase considerably in price, especially if they fit the SBC requirements and are given a green team card. You should sell your investments in the week before the promotion starts if you want to maximise your profit.
