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.
Muncy is 19 years old and was the Athletics 2021 1st round pick. He was signed to an over slot value of $2.85 million in order to get him to forgo his commitment to play collegiately for the Arkansas Razorbacks.
Muncy has an impressive 15 home runs and 6 stolen bases in just 76 games played. Currently sporting a .235 batting average with a .359 on-base percentage. He has shown the ability to drive the ball to all fields but like many young players, his swing can get a bit long when selling out for power.
Between his solid speed, defense and arm, Muncy has the tools needed to stick at shortstop. His athleticism gives him the versatility to also handle second and third if needed. Muncy is currently ranked as Baseball America's No. 43 prospect in the draft.
As any other baseball prospects, Muncy carries risks. But the risks can be lighter on the low-end cards – like below. And now would be a good time to buy.
