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

Kylian Mbappe is worth every penny. He is a superstar and a perennial Ballon d’Or threat. He will win numerous awards in the future, and he could legit have 15+ years of football left in him. The living legend is 24.2 years old, and has 407 combined goals and assists for the top-flight club and country. That is an incredible track record for any player, and he still has ages to play and could arguably score more goals per season. He is a phenom that we are seeing grow before our eyes, and as Messi, Ronaldo, and the like retire, Mbappe will easily be one of the best players in the world for the next generation. The ninja turtle does incredible things in the biggest moments, and there will likely be many titles, achievements, and several World Cups in his future.

The Risk

There is always a market risk when buying one of the highest-valued players in the sport, and with him being so young, the main risk here is an early peak and/or injury. You can never plan around an injury in this hobby, but there is a bit of hedging your bet here. I would buy huge later in his career, but you could stand to make a fortune on one of his Panini-licensed autos in the future as he continues to hit more accolades. There is some risk tolerance here, but the reward could be enormous.
