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.

Colt Keith

The Reward

Colt Keith is 21 years old and was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 5th round of the 2020 MLB June Amateur Draft from Biloxi HS (Biloxi, MS).

In 216 plate appearances at High-A West Michigan, Keith slashed .301/.370/.544 with nine home runs and a whopping 150 wRC+. He has been placed at AA to start the 2023 season, and we are seeing some great numbers from him.

He played great in the Arizona Fall League in late 2022, slashing .344/.463/.541 with three doubles and three home runs in 61 plate appearances during the AFL.

2023 will be a big year for Colt and his value. He is far and away the best-hitting prospect in the Detroit Tigers farm system, but we have to manage expectations for him. He is yet to get on the JustBaseball or MLB top 100 list, so he is an extreme flyer.

The Risk

In the past few years, we have seen that some Tigers prospects have come up with big promises and did not blossom at the major league level. Colt has all the makeup to be a masher in the big leagues, but he needs to cut the strike-out levels down. As he faces advanced pitching in AA for the first time in 2023, we will see if he can be a disciplined power hitter. If so, then the sky is the limit. If not, we may never see him have a major league debut.
