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.
Ronald Acuña Jr.
Acuna is 25 now and coming off a down year riddled with minor injury setbacks and a year after he had major ACL surgery. He hit only .266 with 15 HR and 50 RBI in 2022. This is good for most players but pedestrian for a guy with the talent like Acuna has.
However, they say it takes a full year to really recover from ACL surgery and Acuna is off to a hot start proving the talent and ability is still there. Through the first 12 games of the 2023 season Acuna is hitting .340 with 2 HR and 6 RBI. Additionally, he has 8 BB and 6 SB. Acuna appears to be back to his highly productive self.
He's highly marketable and fans seem to gravitate to his youthful enthusiasm and love for the game. Acuna is the definition of an MLB superstar.
The risk with Acuna or the only thing that can truly hold him back is injury. The guy is an all around great baseball player with a bright future ahead of him. As long as he stays the course, is a good teammate and continues to play with joy and enthusiasm, Acuna appears to be a good investment.
