The Paolo Maldini Baby Icon SBC has incredible value. Before the SBC was released on December 29th, the card cost 480,000 coins on the transfer market. The SBC is about 290k, which is 200k cheaper than the market price. When the Maldini owners saw this, they naturally wanted to get rid of the tradable card quickly, so the price dropped to 380k. That's still 100k more than the SBC, and that's why we're telling you: get in there!

Maldini is one of, if not THE best defender currently in FIFA 23. His Prime Icon costs 2.1 million coins, making him by far the most expensive defender in the game. His baby version is not much worse, and he can of course also play as a centre-back.

The FIFA content is fun at the moment, and that's mainly because of the cool SBCs. EA has come up with something over the holidays. All the Winter Wildcard SBCs, Maxim Gullit, who has the same stats as his father Ruud Gullit, Mid Icon Jairzinho and so on and so forth. We are really positively surprised.

And now Maldini Baby Icon for a little less than 300k, but because you surely have some fodder in the club, the SBC will cost much less for you. Therefore our clear recommendation: Do the Maldini SBC!
