FIFA 17 Halloween Cards Introduction

What is a Ultimate Scream card?

To celebrate the Halloween, Electronic Arts introduced in FIFA 17 a brand new card. These cards are assigned to a selection of players chosen based on exceptional real world performances, records and FUT attributes, and released all at once in a single FUT squad of 23 players.

These cards become available in packs for a week. During this period, which starts at 6pm (UK time), the FIFA 17 Halloween cards replace the corresponding regular not coloured cards. In other words, in the week a player gets his Halloween card in packs, it is impossible to find his regular card there. Your odds of pulling one of these cards from a pack are exactly the same of pulling the day 1 card of that player in another time.

If you own the regular card of a scream player, your card will keep unchanged. If you want the new version, you will need to buy the corresponding version in the market or pull it from a pack in that week.

FIFA 17 Halloween Cards Ratings and Stats

How big are the ratings and stats boosts?

From 21 October to 28 October, 23 Ultimate Scream players will be released in packs with upgraded ratings as unique items. However, these upgrades will only be available during the Halloween period (28 October 6pm ?? to 1 November). These temporary boosts come to an end on November 1st at 6pm GTM and their ratings revert back to match their initial release upgrade. After the Halloween period, the only difference between the Halloween cards and their respective original NIF cards is the colour and a small boost.

The ratings and attributes of FUT 17 Ultimate Scream cards are boosted up to ten points, compared with their regular cards.



FIFA 17 Halloween Cards Prices

What happens to the Halloween cards’ prices?

These new cards are sold for a higher price in the FUT transfer market because of four main reasons: many people like to collect them; the discard price of these cards are the same one of in form cards; they are slightly better than the day 1 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.

  1. What do you think about the prices AFTER 1 nov 6 pm UK time? Will they drop under 30k?

      1. joep Zwijnenberg

        Will they get upgraded if winter upgrade come out, for example balotelli’s normal card is 79 rated now his scream card 80 it is rumoured that ballotelli wil get a +2 upgrade. Will his scream card upgradw to?

  2. i have purchased plenty of scream team (halloween) players from the market like eg i have purchased 92 stats kante will his stats go down to its orignal 79 and vice versa to remaining players??and diega costa as well that is 105

  3. Beginner FUT player

    I got scream pirlo in a pack but he seems to be unsellable, any idea why this is the case?

  4. Rasmus Oglaend

    I have a Lukaku card which is upgraded (85). I know that in the period between 28th october and 1st november he will get the big upgrade (94). But after this period, will he still be scream lukaku (85), or regular lukaku (84)?

      1. From what I’ve been reading after Halloween these cards will return to original scream rating so they are still better then their regular Card.

  5. Declan williamson

    So if i have say aduriz halloween card when he goes upto a 93 overall will i get that rating

  6. Gareth Sohain

    see when the ratings go up will the prices increase so for example Wesley Snejder {84} at the moment he goes for approx 50k but when he is upgraded will he go for more than 40k

  7. I have a scream card and between the days will they be upgraded and stay upgraded or not?

  8. Does the price go up when the card gets boosted? I just packed Pirlo and idk if i should sell him now or wait till the upgrade?

    1. It depends of how many stupid people are playing this game. 🙂
      I explain: the most natural is to see prices dropping over time since the first day. That’s what is happening and what should happen until the end of the Halloween period, because after November 1st they will be just like a regular day 1 card.
      However, there are many people that simply don’t realise that the boost is temporary. These people are who may pay more for the card that was supposed. To be honest, I don’t think it will happen too often and for that reason you should sell him as soon as possible.

      1. The cards are still slightly better than Day 1 though? So I presume that they will go back to their original scream rating rather than their day 1 values.

  9. What happens when u pack a scream card between the 28 oct and 1 November will the card stay the same

  10. Is it clever to only sell the when they ratings go up ? Us their prices are dropping progressively everyday day
