FIFA 21 TOTY Investments: Who To Buy, Price Predictions, Best Time To Buy TOTY Cards, Market Predictions And Everything You Need To Know

The FIFA 21 Team of the Year Promotion is in full swing, with the defenders and goalkeeper set to be announced and released into packs later today, completing our TOTY XI.

Being by far the best cards in FUT at the current point in time, plenty of FUT players are wondering when the best to time buy these cards is, as well as potential prices to look at picking them up at.

Never fear, we’re here to go over some price predictions for these TOTY cards over the coming days and weeks, plus we also look at some optimal times to buy, looking at previous years’ market data.

Best Time To Buy TOTY Cards

The question that a lot of people are wanting the answer to this year, is when is the best time to buy TOTY cards for your team?

If you’re looking at a buy time over the next week during the TOTY event itself, the later stages of the week should provide good opportunities, as the full team enters packs, meaning the greater supply of these cards and more dips in price, especially as players finish their Weekend Leagues.

The later part of the TOTY promotion was a low point of the event in FUT 20, with a number of in-demand TOTY items rising back up in price after the event concluded and people continued to buy, drying up the supply.

If you’re looking longer term, the closer we get to Team of the Season, the more these TOTY cards should fall in price, as higher rated TOTS cards approach.

It’s clear this year that EA has made an effort to balance TOTY cards compared to the TOTS cards that are released later in the year, to keep more in line with the overall power curve of the game.

A Big Thing To Note For FUT 21 TOTY Cards

One thing to really make clear though, for FUT 21 TOTY items specifically, is that compared to previous years, they’re not as highly rated and have reduced stats, meaning they’re not as high up the power curve.

As we get more promotions over the coming weeks such as Winter Refresh, Shapeshifters and the big one, Future Stars, these TOTY cards could dip considerably in price as more top-level players are introduced up and around their level, increasing competition for places in FUT squads.

TOTY Price Predictions

The next big question people want to know answers to is “what price do I buy _____ at?”

Obviously, it’s near impossible to predict exactly where cards will go to, however, we can use some logical assumptions and data from last year to predict roughly where cards will go to over the coming days and weeks.

If we take a look back at what happened to TOTY items in FUT 20 over the course of the event, some cards dropped a further 5-20% when the full team was released into packs, due to greater supply of cards on the market.

With that in mind, and with so many people saving packs for TOTY, as well as splashing a tonne of coins on upgrades, here are some predictions for TOTY cards towards the end of the TOTY promotion.
