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 8th overall pick in 2021 is a tooled-up prep outfielder in the mold of previous Rockies first-round picks David Dahl and Zac Veen. Montgomery was one of the best athletes in the 2021 MLB Draft Class. He has moving parts to his swing and is still growing into his 6'4", 200-pound frame, so patience will be key. But he has posted a .783 OPS and nine extra-base hits in 100 plate appearances across two levels.
He is currently ranked No. 5 in the Rockies system on MLB.com. Benny has also created some buzz with his fancy autographs on some cards. According to his Tweet, 99% of the cards were signed with his ordinary signatures and only 1% were signed with a fancier signature.
Like all prospects, Benny is also risky. But some of his Bowman Chrome Autos are reasonably priced so it may not hurt your wallet to give it a shot.
