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.

The Reward

The 21-year-old SS prospect and former 30th overall pick in Round 1 of the 2019 MLB Draft is already the #8 overall prospect at and the #1 prospect in the Yankees organization.

He's made the Yankees Roster out of spring training, and we are thrilled to see him up at the major league level. However, he was likely the critical piece the Nationals wanted in the expected Juan Soto to the Yankees talk. Presumably, they wanted him to be in pinstripes long term. Thus they didn't move for Soto.

It's early, but Vople looks ready for the next step and puts good at-bats together for the Yankees. He has massive shoes to fill with the Captain being the all-time great at SS for the Yankees, but he will have plenty of runway to see what legacy he can create for himself.

The Risk

He is young and has struggled to hit for power. His game is not quite as dynamic as some of the current Short Stop stars all over MLB, but he will be able to hold his own. However, he will likely not compete for Rookie of the Year, hurting his value.
