IF Bonucci. Why pay 130K for a +3 strength upgrade?

Hi Guys,

Sometimes it amazes me what people are willing to pay for IF's. In general IF's are not worth it if its a +1 in overall rating.

This year we see a lot of low rated golds get an +3 or +4 boost or a position change, which makes a difference but why pay 130K for IF Bonucci?

Whats is your thoughts on this?

    You can buy the IF and put a shadow or anchor on him as well. The IF is still better. Maybe not 100k better, but still better. It's obvious that people pay more for the color of the card than it's quality, same way some Movember cards are going for much higher prices even though their upgrades are pretty much non existant.

    It's supply and demand. Traders know there is much profit to made because some enjoy playing with these cards regardless of the price. Noone is forcing them to pay inflated prices, they do it willingly. Demand amongst traders far outstrips those that want to play with them them thus the high prices are standard.

    Another factor is that because there is a set amount of IF cards once they are out of packs, their price is more likely to rise than drop. Even if they are not worth the coins, you're much more likely to get your coins back when you're bored of the card.

    That's why I'm happy to pay a much higher price for an IF, compared to buying someone like Reus who I would lose 8k on as soon as I sell and probably even more as the prices generally drop for non-IFs over a short(ish) time.

    Sure, but you also have to keep the ivestment opportunity costs of your coins in mind. I can invest the 80k i save by buying the nif and double that, more than negating the price drop of the nif.

    He is a beast. I sold him on for a profit, but no doubt ill buy him back again soon. I have no interest in IF Bonucci when I can have IF Manolas for less.

    That makes sense. All the people buying the IFs are probably thinking along the same lines as me, but I can see why you would personally choose not to.
