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.


The Reward

Grimes, a 2021 1st round pick, has been a fixture in the Knicks lineup this season. Although his raw numbers don’t jump off the stat sheet (10pt/3reb/2asst), he is a trusted member of a top 5 team in the East. Julius Randle just went down with an ankle injury which could open up more scoring opportunities for Grimes the last few weeks of the season. The Knicks are all but assured the 5 seed in the playoffs which will match them up against the Cavs. That should be a great series assuming Randle can come back. Grimes has averaged 21pts over his last 4 games which gets us excited about Grimes future. We’re buying Grimes.

The Risk

Being in the starting lineup for a solid playoff team in his 2nd year speaks loudly about what the Knicks think of Grimes. There is low risk with Grimes, but if there was any, it might be that there won’t be enough shots for him in the lineup that includes Brunson, Randle, and Barrett.
