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.
Bones Hyland is 21 years old and was selected by the Denver Nuggets with the 26th pick in the first round of the 2021 NBA Draft.
Hyland is a crafty 6’3 combo guard from VCU. He is an incredible athlete and a dynamic two-way guard. The sharp point guard lit up the stat column in his rookie year with averages of 10.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game. He has great length and is an intelligent player who can step up as a solid secondary option for Nikola Jokic.
This young talented player is the first Nugget to earn the honor of the NBA’s all-rookie team since Jamal Murray in 2016-17. He is one to keep a keen eye on.
Bones’ card prices are not very cheap. Plus, with Jamal Murray coming back, Bones is most likely to be a role player than a superstar. Hence, comes the question - how far can Bones push the ceiling of his cards’ prices in the long run?
