Kevin Durant 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.

Kevin Durant

The Reward

KD will be returning to the Nets for the 2022-23 NBA Season, and will finally team up for a full year with Kyrie Irving, Ben Simmons, and have a solid supporting cast including Cameron Thomas (who we love), Joe Harris and Seth Curry.

We never believed that Brooklyn would win the title last season, but we do actually believe there's a solid chance they could win it this year. This means Durant is a solid Buy / Hold right now.

In addition to the high upside in him returning to Brooklyn, there are plenty of reasons to buy Durant right now.

Among them, the fact that he's widely regarded as a Top 15 player all time in NBA history, a 2-time NBA Champion and a sure fire HoF.

While getting traded would have likely caused a day or two spike in value, with Durant returning to Brooklyn, I now see him as a legitimate sports card investment with a potential payoff in June of 2023.

The Risk

The only real risk with buying KD's cards is that much of his predicted future success could be already built into his pricing.

This means that because the Nets were the preseason favorite to win the 2022 NBA Title, and so far they are making good on that prediction, people buying KD now are buying him with expectations that he will win, not that he "could win." There is a recent precedence for this in sports card investing, and it is something we all need to be careful of.
