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 29 year-old career back-up is now a starter in Cleveland with Deshaun Watson out until Week 13 with a suspension, and has led the Browns to a 1-1 record after two weeks. He beat the Carolina Panthers in Week 1, but fell apart in Week 2 against the Jets, losing 31-30 and throwing an interception in the final seconds rather than allowing his team the chance at a last second go-ahead field goal.
If Cade York wouldn't have missed an extra point after Nick Chubb's third TD of the day, there's a good chance Brissett would be 2-0.
Up next for Cleveland, the Steelers. Brissett could be a solid quick flip.
His ceiling is super low. Don't expect his cards to 10x or anything. Best case scenario, he fills in for Watson and leads Cleveland to an above .500 record, causing a momentary 20%-50% spike in value to his top cards.
Still, it's worth a look.
