De'Andre Hunter 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 fourth overall pick in 2019 (yep, just after Zion, Ja and RJ), is entrenched as Atlanta's starting 6'8" wing that can defend and score at a very high level, and his cards are so cheap that to one, it may seem "there's nowhere to go but up."

The Hawks obviously believe in him, as they've now traded away both Cam Reddish and Danilo Gallinari to make more playing time for Hunter.

Even though the Hawks lost to the Heat in the first round of the playoffs, Hunter actually looked like a legit threat, and he stayed healthy for a long stretch.

The Hawks just added Dejounte Murray via trade, which pushes Hunter down the pecking order, but also takes some pressure off of him, and puts Atlanta in position to win the East in 2022-23.

The Risk

Injury, of course, as he has a history of not being able to stay on the floor. But also, now he's in danger of becoming "just a guy," as the third option at best in Atlanta behind Trae Young and now Murray. Low ceiling.
