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.
Barcelona has perennially had the best young talent and goes back decades before you can find any weakness in their program or youth development, and Pedri is one of the great young core that Barca has. It would never be easy to move on from the greatest of all time, but this young core that Barca has boasts a ton of eye-popping skills. Pedri is our preferred Barca man at the moment. He is the youngster with the most amount of goal threat, and as a goal-scoring central midfielder, the hype train leaves the station quickly.
Pedri has the right tools, club, goal-scoring threat, national team, and teammates to make his career very lucrative; the question is will they step up into their big shoes to fill? Or will they not be able to compete with the likes of Real, Athleti, and even Bettis in La Liga?
As I have noticed, most of Pedri’s buyers buy from a national team front. There seems to be more hype around him when he plays well for Spain than anything he does in a Barcelona kit. This worries me a bit. With Gavi, Fati, and Puig all so young and malleable, I worry it will not all fit together.
