|92 CDM Stepanenko||850||2500||3350|
|92 LW Nolito||850||2500||3350|
|99 GK Akinfeev||7400||2900||10300|
|99 CB Hasebe||7400||2900||10300|
|103 RM Milner||21800||3100||24900|
|103 LB Monreal||21800||3100||24900|
|104 CAM Fabregas||35900||35900||99500|
|104 CB Pique||35900||35900||99500|

|100 CB Pepe||7500|
|102 CM Rakitic||10000|
|103 GK Buffon||12500|
|100 CAM Maradona||4000|
From the table above we can clearly see you can grab everything other than the 104s and of course the 106 Prime Icon Garrincha. Remember every time you play a match, you get 175 Flashbacks Points. You will need to replay the match to get more and more Flashbacks Points. The only time you will miss is the Gallery Points. There are 56 matches available, and one needs to play a total of 146 times to obtain the maximum rewards, thus leading to replaying the matches at least 90 times!
There you can either get either of the two 12 ranked 103 players or a 102 12 ranked Rakitic, 103 13 ranked Buffon and the Event Icon 100 10 ranked Maradona! Remember for the 2nd choice, you will fall shy of a minimum of 550 extra points that you need to make up either from the Gallery Points or from the Store Gem Packs.
Thus being free-to-play one can easily get, 103 RM Milner OR 103 LB Monreal OR (102 CM Rakitic + 103 GK Buffon +100 CAM Maradona)
Additionally, you will be opening the Gallery at least 210 times from the daily logins and playing the matches, thereby making your way to the 500k coins milestone. You can get more tries depending on whether you can get Gallery Points from the Gallery itself or Gem packs.
