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.
Jaylen Waddle is 23 years old and is in his second year with the Miami Dolphins. He was picked overall sixth by the Dolphins in 2021.
Jaylen played in 16 games, recording a rookie record 104 receptions, with 1,015 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns.
He was the best receiver in all college football and the best receiver in the 2021 Draft and looks like a future superstar in the league.
Waddle picked back up right where he left off in Week 1, with a great game and a phenomenal TD from Tua. With his end zone dance, he could be a fan favorite for a long time and a pretty liquid investment.
After catching 11 of 19 targets for 171 yards and two TDs in Week 2, he's approaching superstar status. Could he be this year's Ja'Marr Chase? Meaning, if the Dolphins keep winning, could his value skyrocket? We think so.
Though now teammates, Tyreek Hill called out Waddle to a race. It is going to be tough competing with one of the NFL's most performant receivers, and it's also not solidified that WRs will have a place in the sports card investing world.
