De'Aaron Fox Sports Card Investment Report

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.

The Reward

The Reward: We love top five picks from recognizable college programs who bust into the league and make an impact in their first few seasons. And, oh by the way, we love point guards. Fox has improved his PPG by four our more each season since he entered in 2017, finishing last season with a career high 25.2 PPG, adding 7.2 APG and 3.5 RPG.

He finished a rocket 2021-22 averaging 23.2 points, and is capable of lighting it up for 30+ any night, while running the offense.

Fox is the centerpiece of the Kings franchise, and is primed to be in the spotlight for a franchise that is looking to be competitive and make the playoffs for the first time since 2006 (the largest playoff drought in NBA history)

If the Kings can improve over the next few seasons, Fox's card value should have some serious opportunities to explode.

The Risk

The Risk: Fox missed the last month of the season with a hand injury, and rookie Davion Mitchell played really well in his absence.

As of this writing, the Kings don't have a new head coach yet. The Kings are awful and their front office is a mess. They've already fired their coach before the first third of the NBA season had passed. The risk for Fox's card value is that he stays in Sacramento for his entire career after signing a five-year extension with the Kings a few weeks ago for a maximum $163 million.
