Cade Cunningham Sports Card Investment Report

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 Pistons losing Cunningham may be a blessing both for the Pistons, and those who are seeking to buy Cunningham cards. The only short term losers are those that were hoping to unload cards for profit this season. The Pistons will get a high draft choice this Summer, so that only adds value to the Pistons as well as Cunningham’s stock. We still like Cunningham in the long run of course. His cards may continue to drop a bit, so if you can time it, there may be a moment before the draft lottery in May where you could scoop Cunningham for a nice price.

The Risk

Through 2 seasons, Cunningham hasn’t been healthy for a long enough stretch to get a good feel for what he can become. Is this the beginning of an injury-riddled career, or just an unfortunate start to his time in Detroit? Time will tell of course, so there needs to be some caution when throwing a lot of money at Cunningham cards.
