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.
Mike Williams signed a three-year, $60 million extension with the franchise and will remain a valuable part of the Los Angeles Chargers’ offense for the next three seasons.
Williams is averaging 16.8 yards per reception over the past three seasons, tied for fifth in the league. The wide receiver has shown versatility in his game throughout his five seasons. He was a red-zone target in 2018 before becoming more of a deep threat in 2019 and ’20. Last season, he caught more passes on short routes but also had nine receptions of at least 40 yards, which led the AFC.
Keenan Allen and Williams have been leading the Chargers' wide receiver group and have been a formidable one-two pairing for the last five seasons. In preparation for the 2022 NFL season, Bucky Brooks of NFL.com ranked the top duos at each position, landing Allen and Williams as the top wide receiver pairing.
After a quiet day in a Week 1 win against Las Vegas, Williams broke out in a Week 2 loss against the Chiefs, hauling in 8 of 10 targets from Justin Herbert for 113 yards and a TD.
Williams cards may not be cheap, but a talented player like him holds lesser risk.
Plus, this offseason has pushed the prices lower making it a great buying opportunity.
