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.
Precious Achiuwa is 22 years old and was selected by Miami Heat with the 20th pick in the 1st round of the 2020 NBA Draft. Achiuwa was traded by the Miami Heat with Goran Dragic to the Toronto Raptors for Kyle Lowry in August 2021.
For all the ups and downs of Achiuwa’s season, he arguably is Toronto’s most improved player for 2021-22. By the end of the season, it was clear he’d become a key member of Toronto’s future and one of the biggest success stories for the Raptors. He’d gone from a non-shooter in Miami to a three-point marksman, shooting 39.2% from behind the arc and averaging 12.2 points following the All-Star Break, and developed into one of the league’s most versatile and talented defensive players.
Achiuwa’s cards’ prices and risks are both on the lower side. Also, he has plenty of room for development as any other young NBA star in terms of card prices.
