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.

Collin Sexton

The Reward

Collin Sexton is 23 years old and was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 1st round (8th pick) of the 2018 NBA Draft.

Sexton’s scoring prowess makes him one of the best young players in the league. Last season, he scored the 18th-most points per game, ahead of players such as Brandon Ingram, Paul George, and DeMar DeRozan.

Sexton was the most statistically productive up until he suffered his season-ending injury through 11 games. Through four seasons in the NBA now, he has averaged 20.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and has shot 45.8% from the floor, making him one of the better free agents this offseason.

He has been traded to the Utah Jazz as part of a HUGE package for Donovan Mitchell. Sexton is the biggest piece that the Jazz received in return for Mitchell, and while there will be more opportunity for him to blossom as a key piece for the rebuilding Jazz, he's now in "no man's land" and totally at risk of becoming "just a guy."

Cavaliers receive:
Donovan Mitchell

Jazz receive:
Collin Sexton
Lauri Markkanen
Ochai Agbaji
2025 first-round pick
2026 pick swap
2027 first-round pick
2028 pick swap
2029 first-round pick

The Risk

Don't buy the trade hype on Sexton. He may not materialize in Utah. While Danny Ainge is a respected GM, Will Hardy is a brand new head coach and the league's youngest at age 34.

We're concerned that Sexton's overall stock will fall after an initial post-trade spike.
