FIFA 17 Halloween Cards
FIFA 17 Halloween cards are awarded to a selection of scream players and released all at once in a single FUT squad of 23 players. Let’s learn something more about these themed players cards released for the first time this year.
FIFA 17 Halloween Cards Introduction
A brand new and inventive card was released by EA Sports in FIFA 17 Ultimate Team on all platforms (Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, PS3 and PC) for the first time in the game modes history. EA perhaps took note of the high demand for their FIFA mobile based promotions. What’s most significant as opposed to other releases such as the St. Patrick’s Green Team is that the players ratings have been boosted and will be boosted again over the Halloween weekend!
The regular versions of the FIFA 17 Ultimate Scream Team Halloween cards will remain unchanged. If you are looking to own one of these Halloween players you will need to find them on the FUT Transfer Market or via packs from Oct 21-28th, 6pm UK.

FIFA 17 Halloween Cards Prices
Despite not performing better in the pitch except during the Halloween period, these new cards are sold for a higher price in the FUT transfer market because of three main reasons: many people like to collect them; the discard price of these cards are the same one of in form cards; and most of all, to fulfil the special squad building challenges. The FIFA 17 Halloween cards will be more expensive as soon as they are released and their price will progressively drop over time.
Since this is the first promotion of the season, most of the prices will have a slightly drop.
