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 flashy #2 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft game into the league with more than 2 million instagram followers and loads of hype from his performances with the G League Ignite.
While it's been an up and down rookie year in Houston, he has proved he has the potential to be blossom into one of the league's top stars, averaging 17 points, 3.4 boards and 2.6 assists per game.
In a five game stretch toward the end of his rookie season, he scored 30 or more points in all five contests.
The dude is impressive, both on and off the court, and I believe a key cornerstone in one of the best rookie classes the NBA has ever seen.
We've seen guys like Zion Williamson and LaMelo Ball come in with so much hype that their team's record doesn't matter that much, but I don't think Green quite fits that mold. He's more of a Ja Morant or Trae Young, who has to prove it on the court before his value blows up.
The Rockets are not likely to be in contention any time soon, so that's a risk in investing in Green's cards, but with the NBA having a play-in tournament and even thinking of implementing a mid-season tourney, there will be plenty of reasons to believe in his card value moving forward.
