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.
If you want to make money investing in sports cards, you've got to think outside the box. There are plenty of plays to be made outside of the traditional big three sports, which is why we include guys like Collin Morikawa on our sports card investment report.
It's okay if you don't know who he is until now. That's why I'm here.
The 25-year old American has six career wins, including two majors, and is the number 2 ranked golfer in the world.
He finished 5th in the 2022 Masters, has 6 top 10 finishes and is 12th in the money. He's a sleeping giant ready to win. When he does, his prices will move.
The other thing I really like about Golf Cards is that most patches / relics are actually player worn in tournaments.
Golf card investors (yes, there are many), have already very much caught onto Morikawa and as a result, his cards are not cheap - well, at least the ones that can actually make you real money.
So the risk is that his cards are already very expensive and it will be hard to find "a deal."
But seeing as how there is much more winning in his future, and he's already being debated against Tiger Woods and others as one of the best, more accomplished golfers of all time under the age of 25, there shouldn't be much of a possibility that you would lose any money on him - as long as you buy the right cards.
