Bought Hero Messi and looks like I boobed...

So I bought Hero Messi for 1.7 mil and Wednesday and there were only a few Messi's for sale. I thought it's a bit high, but I want to play with him and try him out and worse case I will break even but I thought he would be a good investment.

Well I've been watching his price since Thursday and it's down to 1.5./1.6 mil?

I truely suck at buying and now I'm looking at a 200k loss.

Why has his price come down so much? Should I get out of dodge now and take the hit or is they're a chance he will rise?

I'm very impatient and not cut out for the long term investment strategy it seems.

Grrr, Maradonna is going to take me until fifa 30 to get the coins.

    OP might make his money back at least tho, when he goes out of packs I mean... maybe not, but it's a possibility

    It doesnt matter how much coins you have, a loss is always a loss. It hurts losing hard earned coins, smh.

    Thanks all. I will wait until next week and see.

    200k loss is still a large amount of coins. Time, effort and of course FPs wasted ;)

    Still, I wont panic...yet :wink:

    He's one of those cards that are so rare that sometimes the market will only have overpriced Messi's. That's definitely the best time to sell if you undercut the "cheapest" by 10+%
  • I just picked hero messi for 1.4mil. It wasn't yours was it?. Anyway I don't care what his price does I'm keeping him forever

    Not completely true. Its a good day to buy previous weeks IFs especially if the new TOTW is big and generating alot of hype, People move onto the new toys.

    That’s why I bought IF Messi bc I knew it would keep its value even though I’m keeping the card all year. My goal is to reach 1000 goals with him before the end of fifa lol hard goal but we will see

    Yeh You lost some coins but I think it’s worth it. You had him all year and you enjoyed him as a player. FIFA is basically done to me in June.
