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.

Joel Embiid

The Reward

Joel Embiid is the odds on favorite to win the NBA MVP after putting up over 33 point and 10 rebounds per game!  On top of that, after the surprise 1st round exit of both Milwaukee and Cleveland, the Sixers have a legitimate chance at  their first Finals appearance since 2001.  It all comes down to their 2nd round series against the Celtics.  Unfortunately, Joel suffered an injury in the 76ers first round series. Philadelphia will need Joel at full strength to pull of the upset against Boston. If they can win the series, Embiid likely will play in his first Finals, and have a legit shot at winning both the regular season and Finals MVP.

The Risk

If Embiid can't go, or is severely hampered by the knee, they won't be advancing against the Celtics. He won't lose card value, but investors will need to wait another year for a potential Finals appearance. Big guys just don't get the love from the card community. Embiid has to raise the Larry O'brien trophy to see a significant bump in card value.
