Kyler Murray 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.

Kyler Murray

The Reward

He was the number 1 overall pick in 2019, had two very solid statistical seasons in his first two years, throwing for more than 3,700 yards, 20+ TDs and 12 INTs in each. He has improved for the second straight year in 2021, with a higher completion percentage and TD-INT ratio through his first nine games.

Even though the Cardinals lost in the playoffs and Kyler looked like crap, he's still the young starting QB on a playoff team that could be at the top of the NFC at the beginning of the 2022 NFL season, especially with DeAndre Hopkins back in the fold healthy.

Not mention, the Cardinals traded for his former college teammate Marquise "Hollywood" Brown, which should gas things up a bit in their offense and give card owners something to get excited about.

A solid Week 2 performance completely saved his card value heading into the rest of the season, with a comeback win against Las Vegas. From NFL.com -

Kyler Murray is a magician. Arizona looked like it was headed toward another embarrassing blowout loss and Murray didn't appear to be capable of doing anything but burying it deeper. Even worse, the Cardinals appeared to be one of the worst teams in the NFL through their first six quarters of the 2022 season. And then ... everything changed. Murray jump-started Arizona's offense with a flurry of points, yet none came quickly. The Cardinals scored touchdowns on drives of nine, 11 and 18 plays in the final two quarters, and certainly wouldn't have won this game without Murray's magic. During the second-half run, Murray tossed a handful of incredible completions (including a phenomenal grab by Marquise Brown between two defenders for a touchdown) and pulled off mind-blowing feats of football greatness to push the game to overtime. Then, the defense picked him up, carrying the Cardinals across the finish line for a stunning win.

The Risk

There's always a risk of underperformance, which definitely happened in Week 1 against the Chiefs, and for much of Week 2 against the Raiders. But then he turned it around and led the Cardinals to a comeback win. Inconsistency is the risk here.
