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.
Carlos Sainz is 28 years old and was born in Madrid, Spain and races for Ferrari.
Since joining F1’s Bull ring in Torso Rosso in 2015, he was quick to show his fighting spirit and tenacity, one which has earned him the nickname “Chilli”.
He has 149 Grand Prix appearances so far, registering 10 podiums in which he was 2nd, four times.
Sainz has a total of 619.5 points and is currently ranked 5th.
Apart from being intelligent and instinctive on the race track, Sainz's temperament follows him off track where he has remained unfazed so far by the "pressures" of being famous.
- Team Ferrari has seen both their cars face reliability issues during the start of the 2022 season, and as a result, Sainz recorded a DNF in Azerbaijan due to a hydraulics issue. Reliability is an important factor if he would be a contender for the podium.
- Still yet to record any victory after the last 5 races.
- Seriously low ceiling, due to the fact he's the second seat with Charles Leclerc.
