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.
Logan Sargeant is part of the Williams young driver academy and has won the last two Formula Two feature races with Carlin in Britain and Austria, and finishing second in Baku.
The 21-year-old will be the first American driver to participate in an F1 weekend since Alexander Rossi drove for Marussia in 2015. In October, Sargeant will drive with The Williams during a practice session at the United States Grand Prix.
Sargeant may not be well known in the world of US motorsports, but he has suddenly emerged as a strong candidate to rise to Formula One.
He is one to keep on your radar.
Sargeant is not a big name on the American landscape yet and his base cards are going for a few dollars. So, you barely lose at all. However, base cards do not always carry a lot of value. Plus, there are limited variations of cards available for the time being.
Keep in mind, that it is always better to focus on Topps Chrome and Refractors than Topps Paper and Base Cards.
