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.
Ansu Fati is 19 years old.
He is in his 3rd year with FC Barcelona and scored 6 goals in 15 appearances in all competitions this season.
In September 2020, Fati was named the La Liga Player of the Month and was listed as a member of the UEFA La Liga Revelation Team of the Year in the 2019-2020 season.
At only 19 years old, there is plenty of excitement around Fati. He is excellent at using both feet to strike and has a great frame which allows him to use his body to his advantage. He is considered to be one of the most promising young players in the world and is often compared to Lionel Messi, the previous star who wore the number 10 at Barcelona.
There are not many major concerns regarding Ansu Fati and his potential as a player. However, he lacks adequate decision-making at times and is perceived as selfish. In addition, he has had a few injuries in his short career thus far missing 84 games in the last three seasons.
