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.
Marquise "Hollywood" Brown is now reunited with his college buddy Kyler Murray after Arizona Cardinals traded for Brown during the first round of the 2022 draft. In 2018 Oklahoma, Murray and Brown gobbled up yards with the wideout generating 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns in 12 games.
Brown generated an impressive 2,361 yards and 21 TDs over three seasons despite playing in a run-first offense in Baltimore. He became the only WR in Ravens history to hit those marks in just three seasons.
With DeAndre Hopkins suspended for 6 games and Christian Kirk signing in Jacksonville, Brown’s presence is vital for the Cardinals and he has a chance to show off his talent.
Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said the club hopes to eventually lock Brown down for the long term. When this happens, it could help his card value.
Brown was arrested on criminal speeding charges on Thursday, August 4 and has also been dealing with hamstring issues in camp. He likely will face disciplinary action, and is unlikely to see much momentum on the field as a result. He's a longshot for success this season and a risk card play.
