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.
Blaze Jordan is 19 years old and was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the third round of the 2020 MLB Draft at pick No. 89 overall.
Jordan was one of the better-known pre-draft prospects from a fairly young age thanks to viral YouTube videos showing his power. He also won the High School Home Run Derby at the 2019 MLB All-Star Game and recorded the highest exit velocity of any player at the 2019 World Wood Bat Championships (106.9 mph).
Jordan has been hitting an average of .310/.371/.889 and is still one of the more exciting prospects in the system even with the relatively slow start to the season. It’s an important fact to keep in mind as he experiences some struggles against pitchers who are mostly older and more experienced than him. The road to the majors is still a long one ahead, but with plus raw power his ceiling is still sky high, especially if he can make contact as he has so far this year.
If he can continue to make the adjustments in the batters box that he has made early in the 2022 season against more advanced pitching, Jordan will find himself on the Top 100 Prospect list entering the 2023 season.
There is not much risk for Jordan’s cards given his spectacular talent. His cards hold potential for higher ceiling as there is plenty of room for growth in terms of the card prices.
