It can be a pain in the butt to try and get NBA TopShot moments, and sometimes it's hard to understand which ones to buy and which to avoid. There's thousands of moments now, each with thousands and sometimes even tens of thousands of serial numbers - all priced completely different.
In this video, I explain my strategy for coming up with which moments I'm most interested in buying and why.
Here is my criteria:
- Since it can sometimes be a pain in the butt to get packs, I look for Moments in the NBA TopShot Marketplace that are priced below $50, generally.
- I want either future Hall of Famers like Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Steph Curry, Russell Westbrook...all of whom I'd probably even pay up to $75-$100 for a moment... why didn't I mention LeBron? Good luck finding a LeBron moment priced for less than five figures.
- ... Or guys that are consistently high performing up-and-comers, preferably former top five picks in the first few years of their career.
- If they have a big market fanbase, that's even better.
- And, if they also have an international fanbase, they're a buy. That's why RJ Barrett, PG/SG for the New York Knicks, who went to Duke, is from Canada, and a former third overall pick in 2019, is my guy.
- Others include Zion Williamson, Luka Doncic, Ja Morant, James Wiseman, Kyrie Irving and James Harden.
- Oh, and last but definitely not least, I have to like the moment. In order for me to buy one on the Marketplace, I have to think it's a cool play for some reason. Maybe another great player appears in the moment, or maybe it epitomizes the player's best traits, or has some significance in the game itself. I don't want to get stuck with an underwhelming play just because the price is right.
The lower the price of the moment you can find, the easier it will be to flip for a profit, and the more fun it will be to stash away stress-free for a rainy day.
