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.
Cam Akers returned to action less than six months after tearing an Achilles, but the running back didn’t look like he was all the way back in the four games he played in the postseason. He averaged only 2.6 yards per carry, with 67 rushes for 172 yards and no touchdowns.
But Akers now is 100 percent healthy and expecting to rebound in 2022.
LA traded Sony Michel, the team's leading-rusher in 2021, to the Miami Dolphins this offseason. With Akers rising back to full health, he'll be relied upon as RB1.
Heading into training camp, Akers said he has his sights set on being one of the top running backs in the NFL this season. The Rams are counting on it, and Rams fans are looking forward to it.
Akens is risky. He is a running back coming off an injury. If Akens misses time again like last year, his prices will go downhill.
But his cards can be profitable by buying him low now and selling after some big games during the upcoming season, or maybe playoffs.
