Jonathan Kuminga Sports Card Investment Report

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

Kuminga, the 7th pick in the 2021 Draft hasn’t exactly gotten off to a blazing start. He did win a championship in his rookie season, so it’s not like there were a ton of minutes available for him on a loaded roster. His minutes are up only so slightly this season - 19mpg compared to 17mpg last season. The rest of his core metrics this season are basically in line with his rookie season.

We think there is a nice upside in Kuminga, and buying now at a dip in his market is a wise choice for the long play. Kuminga likely won’t be a quick flip candidate barring more injuries to the Warriors starters. Once the Warriors vets continue to age, it’ll be Kuminga and co. that can carry them through for the foreseeable future.

The Risk

Kuminga comes with risk.  He still seems pretty raw, but is a freak athlete, so we’ll take the good with the bad and chalk it up to the NBA learning curve.  He’s in the perfect organization that can afford to be patient with him as he learns his way.
