FIFA 22 Ultimate Team's Fantasy FUT promo has introduced several special footballer items for fans. The Team 1 cards were revealed on March 18, and it consists of a particular card of Allan Saint-Maximin.
The 92-rated ST card has some phenomenal stats, which makes it lethal. Additionally, there is scope for the overall stats to go up further.
However, the card's price has become a topic of debate among fans. It's currently averaging around 4,200,000 FUT coins for both PlayStation and Xbox. The average price is lower on PC at 3.8 million but is still expensive.
The card's price is higher than the unique cards of footballers like Kylian Mbappe, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lionel Messi. This started a discussion among FIFA 22 Ultimate Team fans over the card's price.
FIFA 22 Ultimate Team fans discuss the exorbitant price of Fantasy FUT Allan Saint-Maximin card
Saint-Maximin's cards are popular in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. The skillsets on the cards are helpful in the game's meta. However, every card has a price, and a great card could become a problem if its price is exorbitant.
One gamer stated that the card has the potential to receive up to a +3 overall upgrade. According to them, such an upgrade will make the card the equivalent of an end-game Team of the Year card. Incidentally, only one TOTY card at the moment costs more than Saint-Maximin's Fantasy FUT card.
Another player believes that it's better to invest in the 94 rated POTM card of Kylian Mbappe at a similar cost.
A hilarious reply from one person who referred to Saint-Maximin's iconic headband as a cause of the inflated price.
A Newcastle United fan stated that Saint-Maximin might not fill the conditions which will allow his card to get the upgrades. If the card receives a +3 upgrade, the price could be justified.
One player stated that while many fans claim the usefulness of Saint-Maximin, not everyone will use the card.
Players are already stating that alternative investments are cheaper and better than the Fantasy FUT Saint-Maximin card.
More comments were made about his headband.
Some even missed a part of the price and thought that the card was priced at 3,600 FUT coins.
One player even stated that the price could be pure hype based on Saint-Maximin's reputation in the game.
In all likelihood, the card price will come down in the coming days. There are very few available copies in the market which has been the cause of this exorbitant price. It could also mean that players believe that the card is genuinely worth it and not selling.
It will be interesting to see how many upgrades Fantasy FUT Saint-Maximin receives in April. A complete +3 upgrade will make it a fantastic 95-rated card that can carry a player till the end of the game. There are statistically better cards available at cheaper prices in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team for the time being.
