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.
To describe AJ Styles in a word? What else? Phenomenal.
Since making his long-awaited WWE debut in the 2016 Royal Rumble Match, The Phenomenal One has brawled with the likes of Roman Reigns, Kevin Owens, Shinsuke Nakamura and Brock Lesnar, and has further solidified his abilities with big victories over John Cena, Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan, all while backing up his claim that SmackDown is "The House that AJ Styles Built!"
No matter which brand he is on, Styles has put the entire WWE roster on notice with moves like the Styles Clash, Calf Crusher and the devastating Phenomenal Forearm. Now a Grand Slam Champion, there is no telling how expansive his already impressive list of achievements can get.
Styles is one of the cheaper wrestler cards in the market. He also has a limited variety of cards on his name. However, with the positive trajectory, his achievements are setting, he is likely to gain more popularity in the upcoming years.
