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.
Mick Schumacher is a 23 year old Swiss national from Vufflens-le-Château. More interesting is that he is the son of one of the greatest F1 racers to cruise the tarmac, Michael Schumacher.
He drives for the Haas team - American-owned / German-based; has a record highest race finish of 11th position and the highest grid position of 10th place.
Mick has had only 29 Grand Prix appearances and has yet to score some points in the 2022 season.
Given his age and the fact that he won the F3 championship and F2 championship in 2018 and 2020 respectively, it is safe to say the up-and-coming still has some serious driving ahead of him.
- Team Haas has some serious reliability concerns with their cars, which have caused Mick's partner, Magnussen a second DNF this season.
- In May 2022, Mick was involved in a crash during the race in Monaco. Though he did not suffer any injuries, his mental and probably style of driving might see some change.
- Being the son of Michael Schumacher, the pressure to "leave an impact" could greatly weigh upon him. How he handles this could be a factor which might affect his ability to compete for the title.
