Should You Invest in FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream?

Once the FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream event finishes, usually after Halloween, the special promotional cards will be removed from card packs, meaning you’ll only be able to buy them from sellers on the marketplace. Although the player stats won’t be as amazing as they were over Halloween, these cards will still fetch a lot due to collectible value.

If you choose to do so, immediately sell Scream Team cards as you get them as they likely won't go up in value after the event is over. Keep in mind that EA says the Scream boosted stats will reappear during "scary times", though it's unclear exactly what that means.
