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.
Jasson Dominguez has probably been the most hyped prospect in baseball in recent memory. When you carry the nickname "The Martian" because your skills are out of this world, you are going to carry lofty expectations and a ton of internal pressure to perform. Dominguez is now 20 years old coming off a great spring training with the big league club. However, he has started the season off at AA Somerset and is not off to a good start. As of this writing, he's 0 for 16 with 9 K's.
Dominguez has all the tools to be great. He's got power, he can hit for average, he's a plus defender with a great arm and he can run. He's off to a slow start but he has all the ability in the world to turn this around quick.
Dominguez has the skills and the hype surrounding him. He's a Yankee prospect so of course he's gonna be a little over hyped and over priced at certain points. The risk here remains as to whether or not the pressure will get to him. From all indications, he works his butt off and his ceiling is high as well as his floor.
