FIFA 19 Players Cards

Introducing you to the FIFA 19 players cards
 
🗓️ Date of the first card
🔴 The higher is the rating, the higher are the stats
🔴 The higher is the frequency, more times the card is released in packs or SBCs
🔴 The higher is the availability, more time the card is available in packs
 

The FIFA 19 players cards are the most important and also the most complex of the game. They are essential so that you can play. Before any game, you will need to fill the starting eleven slots but also the seven slots for substitutes. Without that, you cannot play. That’s why the starter pack gives you, at least, 18 untradeable players.

If you want a specific player, our suggestion is that you go and search for him on the market using the player filters. This way you will only spend coins on cards you don’t have and you will be equipping your club according to what it needs. Obviously the cards you get from packs should also be taken into account. However, if you think they are not necessary, put them on the market and get a few coins from them or use them to submit SBCs.

You can keep as many player’s cards as you want in your club, as long as there are no duplicates. You can have them duplicated on the transfer list or targets, though. In this case, the only limit you have is the list’s maximum capacity that can be increased with the respective EAS FC catalogue items.

Every time you get a player card in a pack or you buy one in the FUT transfer market, you need to send it to your team if you want to use it. In order to do that, you just need to select ‘send to the active squad‘. If you cannot find the card in your squad, and if you are sure that you have not discard it or send it to the transfer list or transfer market, then it is because probably your squad was full and you have send it to the club. In that case, look for it in ‘My Club’ and swap it for another player.

Except for Ones to Watch and Champions cards, it is not possible to improve the rating or the stats of any player. You can do it using training cards but it only lasts for one match. If you have found a card very similar to a card you own but with a different rating, stats, league or club it is because it is a different card category.


 
 
 

Regular Players’ Cards

Day 1, Transfer and Upgrdaded cards

Regular cards are the most basic ones. Every player must have one. All other cards are modifications made from these ones. At the beginning of the game, all the FIFA 19 players cards belong to the regular category. These cards have the innate characteristics and attributes of the player.

As the game progresses, users can change many of the card features such as the preferred position and preferred chemistry style. However, these cards are still considered regular cards. Only the game system can create non-regular cards. It is important to notice again that it is not possible to improve the rating or the stats in a permanent way.

Regular Players’ Cards can be of three types:

99 DAY 1 CARDS
99 TRANSFER CARDS
99 UPGRADED CARDS

 

FIFA 19 Players Cards Guide - Cards Colours and CategoriesFUT 19 Regular Cards – Common on the left; Rare on the right


 

Day 1 Players Cards

🗓️ FUT 09 | TRADEABLE | RATING: 🔴⚪⚪⚪ | FREQUENCY: 🔴⚪⚪⚪ | AVAILABILITY: 🔴🔴🔴🔴

When the game goes out, every player has his own card. In FIFA 19 Ultimate Team, there are more than 16,000 day 1 cards, corresponding to as many players. They are always in packs, for the whole the year, except when it is being released another card of that player. When a card is released for the first time and assigned to its first owner, it comes with fitness 99 and seven contracts, except for the players of starter pack that have 45 contracts.

The ratings and the stats of regular cards are calculated according to the player’s performance and popularity in the previous 365 days. The cards with higher ratings are the one of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Every single day 1 card can be of two types: common or rare. Most of the gamers think that the rare cards, with its bright and with the luminous aspect, are better than the other ones. They believe that the rare cards were created to help players to distinguish easily the best cards. It is not absolutely true. The rare cards are items that have something unique. In the case of player’s cards, for example, the rare cards are assigned to players that have something that no other player has. It can be the tallest goalkeeper of his league, the only player from a country in a particular league or even a CB with an exceptional attribute compared to players with a similar overall. These cards are usually more valuable than the other ones but mostly because their discard price is also higher.


 

Transfer FIFA 19 Players Cards

🗓️ FUT 11 | TRADEABLE | RATING: 🔴⚪⚪⚪ | FREQUENCY: 🔴🔴⚪⚪ | AVAILABILITY: 🔴🔴🔴🔴

In order to keep the game updated, Electronic Arts replicates in to FIFA 19 Ultimate Team what is happening in the real transfer market.

When a player moves from his club to another one in the real life, EA Sports releases a new card for this player: the transfer card. The only difference you will find between the new card and the old one, the regular version, is the club and eventually the league. In everything else they are physically identical to the originals, including the ratings and the stats which remain unchanged.

These cards are released two times in the year: during the Winter Transfers Season, on January and February, and during the Summer Transfers Season, from July to September. In any of these cases, the cards are released as the transfers are occurring.


 

Upgraded FIFA 19 Players Cards

🗓️ FUT 13 | TRADEABLE | RATING: 🔴🔴⚪⚪ | FREQUENCY: 🔴🔴⚪⚪ | AVAILABILITY: 🔴🔴🔴🔴

As we already have explained, it is not possible to improve the stats of any regular card. However, if a player stands out in the real world, in such a way that his card becomes strongly outdated, Electronic Arts comes to justice introducing a new type of card.

The Ratings Refresh are usually released in February with the goal of adjust the players’ rating and players’ attributes to the reality. They are physically identical to the originals, except on rating and stats.

These cards are usually assigned to the best players of the first half of the season. They must have played well in a consistent way throughout this period and not only in few games, showing that their old regular card was really outdated. The average rating increase to these cards are 2 points, which is explained by the fact that they are only assigned to players who had a marked development and not to minor adjustments.

As soon as upgraded cards are released, they replace all the respective regular cards that are supposed to be released in packs until the end of the game. That is, the only card you will find in packs is the new one but you may find both cards in the transfer market.


 
 
 

In Form Players’ Cards

TOTW players’ cards

One of the features that makes this game mode so interesting is its dynamic component. During the season, and depending on the players’ form in the real world, EA releases In Form (IF) Cards that change the players’ attributes. To own one of these cards is like having a player in your team with potential to play permanently as well as he did when he stood out.


 

Team of the Week Cards

🗓️ FUT 11 | TRADEABLE | RATING: 🔴🔴⚪⚪ | FREQUENCY: 🔴🔴🔴🔴 | AVAILABILITY: 🔴🔴⚪⚪

Every Wednesday, EA Sports selects twenty three players of any quality based on their good real life performances on the previous week and joined them into a single team. That team is called Team of the Week and you can play against them in the ‘TOTW Challenge’.

To each one of the players of this team, it is assigned a new black card which becomes available in packs for a week, replacing the corresponding regular card. In other words, in the week a player gets his TOTW cards in packs, it is impossible to find his regular card there. Your odds of pulling a TOTW card from a pack are exactly the same ones of pulling the regular card of that player in another week.

The ratings and attributes of TOTW cards are usually boosted in one, two or three points compared with the regular or the previous special card. The position of the players in these cards may change if, in the previous week, they played really well in a different position.

These cards are also important for Weekend League players, since the FUT Champions cards awarded every week are based on them.

  1. All these special cards make players so overpowered.
    Where is the fun in searching for that one player that fits better in your team and playing style, while other lucky ones/noobs (don’t want to offend annyone) can just buy a player that is rated 99 and has, for example speed and defence of 99….

    Those special cards taka away the tactics and fun out of FUT….

    I understand that certain players prove themselves during the season and deserve a better rating, but keep it normal….

  2. I’m very new to Fifa and missed out on some good opportunities to get highly rated MLS players through SBC (and there’s not many highly rated MLS players to begin with)… other than TOTW and the league SBC, is there another event/special card that features MLS in the future?
    Thanks, Jim

  3. I am playing two years Fifa franchise an still can not understand about regular cards. Will they have dynamic upgrades or not (talking about regular cards of players, that have “in form” cards too)? EA made a very complex to understand system and never makes good documentation about!

    By the way, every explanation with “will be upgraded” in a lots of materials placed in internet does not have clear explanation about HOW this upgrade works. Do I have a right corresponding cards (regular or higher) and sitting waiting to their upgrade OR do I need to buy f***n huge amount of unnecessary idiotic pack to open with crossed fingers)))

    • Hi. We created this website to help the FUT community. That’s our mission.
      Regular cards don’t have dynamic upgrades. In fact, the only ways to improve these cards is applying a training card, which effect only lasts for one match, or during the Winter Upgrades season, when a selection of players have their stats improved according to their IRL performances. For the same player, there are IF and special cards with better stats but you have to buy them on the market or pull them from packs. Just three of these cards have dynamic upgrades: RTTF, OTW and Headliners. Feel free to ask us anything you want to know.

  4. I’m am really new to FIFA and sorry for my stupid question.
    So, if the differences are in two or max 3 points, why the special cards are much more expensive?

    • That’s not a stupid question. Basically, that’s how the market works. There are many people with amazing squads who want to still improve it with the best players. However, there are not enough players for all of them. If you want the best of the best, you have to pay the (high) price.

  5. Why the inform player more expensive than the cl player?? For example suarez’s inform 92 ovr and the cl card also 92 but still the inform is more expensive!?

    • Hi. That’s a good question. None of these two cards is dynamic, so their prices should be similar. As you said, they are not and it may be explained by 2 reasons:
      1) If you compare both cards side by side, you will see that the TOTW version is slightly better on passing and defence.
      2) TOTW cards may upgrade during Winter Upgrades season but it is not confirmed that it will happen to UCL cards too.

  6. Hi Rodrigo,

    I am thinking of buying the Wijnaldum CL card, but what is so special about these CL cards, and why are they so expensive (for just a +1 boost)?

    As far as I know they are not dynamic cards, right?

    Cheers,
    Robbie

  7. Does the UCL card a dynamic one?The price seems still going up even though it’s already overpriced for only +1 boost.
