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

Mayer has jumped up on my list. He continues to have one of the best swings in the minors and is playing on a team with a huge fanbase. I have just put him over Jordan Lawlar in my rankings.

Late spring to early summer. (before the all-star break because I think he will be in the all-star weekend) should be a great time to get in on his original draft autos after the hype of the beginning of the season and the March buying season wears off.

The Risk

We all know that prospects are super risky, but consider Mayer very likely the next Wander Franco, NOT the next Mickey Moniak.

With sales of Jasson Dominguez cards reaching new heights this offseason, it's super reasonable to expect Mayer's cards to multiply in value far before he ever gets close to a big league at bat.

With one exception - you have to buy the right cards.

Make sure you do so by upgrading to our premium package here if you haven't already.
