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.
New Orleans converted the former GA Tech star’s two-way contract to a 4-year, $6.9M contract in March 2022. Jose Alvarado had an impressive debut as the Puerto Rico National Basketball Team's point guard. He scored 20 points (41% shooting FG, 33.3% 3 PT) and recorded 4 assists, 3 rebounds, and 1 steal in the 83-75 defeat to the USA.
The Pelicans guard made 54 game appearances and scored 44.6 % from the field. He became a key contributor throughout the season, especially in the NBA Play-In Tournament and first-round NBA Playoff loss to the Phoenix Suns. His most remarkable contributions were his energy, tenacious play, and ability to create steals.
Coach Willie Green believes Jose to come off the bench and be a "spark plug" for the team's offense and defense during the critical postseason. The 24-year-player is expected to have his role expanded with the Pelicans nucleus in the 2022-23 regular season.
Jose’s cards are low risk and judging by the talent he has displayed, his prices are sure to skyrocket in the upcoming years. His cards are real cheap now so take the chance.
