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 4th overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft from Eastlake High School in California is the most highly touted prospect in the 2021 Draft. The fact that he fell to Boston even further increases his long term card value.
He's in a classic organization that is used to winning, and has a HUGE fan base (more than 2 million on Instagram, 5.1 million on Facebook and 2.1 million on Twitter).
As a 6'3" shortstop, he plays the ideal position for sports card investors, and he is already in the Top 15 on MLB's top prospect list.
He projects to hit the Major League's in 2024, as he's only 18 years old.
With the hype of 2021 Bowman Draft a bit cooled off after Opening Week 2022 has refocused attention squarely on the actual MLB Season, now appears to be a great time to buy Mayer.
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.
