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 Reward

Jeremy Pena is 25 years old and was drafted with the 102nd overall pick in the 3rd round of the 2018 MLB draft.

He is in his 2nd year at the major league level with the Houston Astros organization. We saw Pena go bananas in the playoffs last year, and he has elite skills in his bag to work with. One of his most exciting skills is his clutch factor. Remember that Houston let one of the best short stops in the game walk away to promote this man from the minors. He still is that same guy.

Pena is exciting for his strong defensive abilities as a shortstop. He has a tremendous quick first step and great hands to catch the ball exceptionally well.

The Risk

Pena is known for his all-around game, but I feel a sophomore slump coming on. This Astros team is due to regress this year, and with Altuve out to start the year with a broken hand, I believe we will see Pena falter a bit. He will likely enter a buy window at some point this year if his value continues to slide, but he is a sell/hold for now.
