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.

Jordan Spieth

The Reward

This is where things start to get a little weird with golf cards. Spieth, despite being World #1 in 2015, doesn’t have any Upper Deck cards. He only has three cards, including a 2015 Sports Illustrated for Kids card, a 2015 Beckett Promo card from The National, and a 2016 Topps Flagship and Topps Chrome First Pitch Baseball Card. He’s a top 20 ranked golfer in the world, capable of winning a major at any time, and if he does, his prices will skyrocket given his career resume.

The Risk

Jordan’s cards are pretty low risk - high upside.

His 2015 SI for Kids card sold for $189.99 in BGS 9 on February 11, 2023, for $100 twice in early February in BGS 8.5, and for between $50 - $100 raw several times over the last month depending on condition. His 2016 Topps Chrome First Pitch Orange Refractor /25 sold for $750 in PSA 10 on February 20, 2023. The base version raw has sold for between $5 - $25 frequently depending on condition.
