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.
Mobley and the Cavs feel like a team that’s easy to root for. Every season, there are a few teams that make some noise, and that could very well be the Cavs this season. They’ll very likely get a Top-4 seed in the playoffs giving them home court advantage in the 1st round. The former No. 3 pick in the 2021 Draft, Mobley isn’t flying under the radar, and his cards have held strong value. Card prices will likely rise for Mobley as the playoffs approach. We’re not sure buying in at the moment is the most logical play. He’s likely an off-season buy who looks to have a promising career ahead of him and someone the Cavs will build around.
The Risk is that Mobley and the Cavs never reach the pinnacle in Cleveland. Being in a small market won’t attract a lot of big name free agents so they’ll need to continue building through the draft and trades. Mobley’s cards are sure to have strong value and feel like a good long term play. Having Garland and Mitchell makes us feel good about the Cavs future and with teams like Milwaukee and Philly getting older, there could be a window for the Cavs in the next 2-4yrs.
