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 son of Andruw Jones, former MLB star centerfielder is being hyped as a star of his own.  Jones was the second overall pick in the 2022 MLB draft and is already rated as the #13 overall prospect in baseball per MLB Pipeline.com.  He is described as a silky smooth outfielder, with great speed a good arm and potential for a power bat with the ability to find the outfield gaps.  Jones has started his professional career at the Low A level in the Diamondbacks organization and is off to a shaky start through 10 games hitting just .175 with 0HR and 5 RBI's.  Still plenty of upside remains early in his career.

The Risk

There is always risk with a prospect like Jones.  He's only 19 but there has to be a ton of pressure on a kid like this having to live in the shadow of his superstar father.  He's definitely got a high floor and a high ceiling but will his production match his hype? Jones has the tools but he will need to produce to continue climbing towards the majors.  There are some early warning signs but in fairness he needs time to adjust to being a professional.
