    But that would defeat the purpose of a SBC.

    Not entirely. If you know you're gonna use that icon until the end of the game, there's no resell value anymore for you, so you might just do it and get some packs along with it. Of course the pack return (at least the discard worth) should be enough to compensate the extra costs.

    There is no resell value but you could just buy it for cheaper and do something else with the money.

    Yes a lot of SBC will get pointless especially with TOTS crash ...

    All SBCs have raised by 400k! 90 rated cards are like 100k nearly. What will happen when r9 and co get released. Seedorf will be 2m lol

    I’ll never understand why people still post the same questions about icon sbc prices being similar to there tradeable version. Untradeables!!! How hard is it for people to understand that 99% of people who do icon sbc do so because they have a lot of untradeables to take the price down drastically. Nobody is spending the full amount of coins on an untradeable icon. Guarantee 90% use a icon they packed from the base/middle icon or a previous prime there not happy with anymore. There’s 350k off. High Flashback players, another 100/200k off. Sbc players, another 100/200k off. Untradeable high rated players, another 100/200k off. Some people can probably do some icons for less than 200k because of untradeables. Your untradeables that you don’t use have no other use than to go into Sbcs.

    When actual TOTS cards are out the prices of these SBCs should actually drop significantly, because there will be all these 90+ rated but still terrible TOTS cards going for very cheap

    with all the special cards they've been giving out this year TOTS cards are going to have high overall ratings

    The prices for PIM sbcs will keep changing as the market changes. Atm cards are very high off the back of Icon SBC.

    The market may now drop, reducing the cost slightly but When Gullit drops, the prices for every PIM will increase regardless of how cheap their equivalent icon is on the market becuase NIF and IF prices will increase.

    The value of PIM sbcs is always more than on the market due to pack value. You are gambling when building a untradable icon. Also icons on the market will steadily decrease in value whereas a PIM sbc will always be based on the value of the cards it’s costs to complete it.

    Most people use untradbale cards to reduce the cost. Although these cards still hold a opportunity cost value, they are not needed in the club and can be used towards something you really want in exchange. Don’t waste them.

    When tots is in full swing, PIM sbcs May reduce becuase high rated cards are more readily available. Icons form the market will also decrease as they become more redundant becuase people will be selling to replace with a untradable and packs.

    Supply and demand.

    Seems ok to me.

    I'm stuck on an 88 rated Socrates to finish his SBC, I have the coins but I'm waiting until tomorrow to complete him prices might be a bit lower with rewards, then I'll be stacking all packs until tots.
