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.
Malachi Flynn is 24 years old and was selected by Toronto Raptors with the 29th pick in the 1st round of the 2020 NBA Draft.
Flynn played pretty well as a rookie, averaging 7.5 points in only 19.7 minutes. Even though his minutes and scoring took a dip last season, he filled in well for Fred VanVleet when he went down in injury in the second half of the season, averaging 16.9 points, 5.6 rebounds and 6.3 assists per 48 minutes as a reserve.
VanVleet’s contract is up in 2024, at which time Flynn will be 26 and could step into a starting role on a team ready to compete for championships with guys like Trent Jr., Scottie Barnes and Pascal Siakam making up a nice young nucleus.
Flynn isn’t a bad flier and his stuffs are primed to rise in the upcoming seasons if he gets more play time.
