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

Walker slashed .306/.388/.510 with 19 HR and 68 RBI in 119 games for Double-A Springfield on his way to being named a Texas League All-Star. He played 20 games in the Arizona Fall League, batting an impressive .288/.372/.575 with 5 HR and 16 RBI against the game’s best prospects. Walker is doing things at age 20 that few in the game can.

Bowden had this to say about Walker;

“Your biggest acquisition is going to be the promotion of (Jordan Walker) on Opening Day…This kid is going to be a superstar. The big bat you want, you have. It’s sitting in the minor leagues, and you’re going to get it this year.”

The potential superstar buzz has been following Walker for a while now, and he could be the next young phenom to come up to the Major Leagues and produce like an All-Star right away.

The Risk

No matter how high Walker is ranked, he is still risky because he is a prospect. But the risk is much lower on the low-end cards, like below.
