Our Investing Thesis
The hobby is huge. There is a ton of temptation and FOMO. It's easy to become undisciplined and sloppy in pursuit of making money investing in sports cards.
Our sports card investing thesis is three fold.
1. Don't Chase. The way to make money investing in Sports Cards is NOT to chase the hot players or cards, but to have the ability to identify the NEXT hottest player BEFORE their card prices take off.
2. Stay In The Game. Since each player has a countless amount of cards, it's necessary to stay disciplined in identifying and purchasing cards that will have the ability to rise in value. Go Low / Mid Risk as much as possible. Everyone wants the big names. If the price is already high, then the upside is already baked in. Buy the dip on either the card, the player or both. Have reasonable expectations. Not every card will yield a profit, but overall, if you stay in the game, you should make 20% over the long haul.
3. Be Set Up To Sell. The most overlooked part of profiting in sports card investing is actually being set up to sell your cards. This includes acquiring cards that are frequently transacted, so as to instill confidence in your future buyer by being able to show consistent sales comps. We're not saying not to acquire short prints and variations, but if you're looking to make an ROI quickly, these aren't always the best cards.
There are two windows. The long term window and the flippable window. The long term window is when you believe a player has a season or more of relevant potential "moments" ahead. The flippable window is when a player actually never has to perform well on the field or court, but only has to generate enough "hype" to see an increase in card value.
We know that our background of professional sports front office work and player scouting, high stakes fantasy sports expertise, digital content creation and sales will make our Sports Card Investment Report a critical piece in your pursuit of positive ROI on your Sports Card Investments.
What an exciting time for Yankees fans and Aaron Judge collectors. The mammoth 30 year old outfielder who stands at 6'7", 282 has been having a career year, recently tying Babe Ruth's 60 HR in a season mark, and is two away from the Yankees and AL all time record. And oh, by the way, he's batting .316 with 128 RBI as well.
He's a tricky one though, because it would be a bit silly to buy in now, with all the hype around his individual performances, but what's interesting is that there is still some upside here.
- The Yankees are competing for an ALCS spot
- Judge will be a free agent in 2023 and could land somewhere else next year, which would bring with it more hype, media coverage, and a potential new fanbase wanting to buy his cards.
This season will be hard to beat, so if you buy now, or miss this selling opportunity, you could lose money on his cards moving forward.
