1. Tiger Woods: Safe Opportunity

Our first safe buy comes from the golf GOAT himself, Tiger Woods. Paul likes investing in Woods now as a strong “go where they ain’t” athlete that offers a handful of investment opportunities in different price ranges. Our budget-friendly option resides with his 2001 Upper Deck Victory March in PSA 10. This card is easily accessible, with a pop count of $2k, and while trading in the $60-70 range for the last several months, this card historically trades upwards of $100 prior to Major tournaments (The Masters in the Spring, in June as the PGA Championship and US Open draw closer). Recently deals are certainly able to be found on this option, with multiple transactions near the $30 mark this month, giving investors an easy opportunity to double their money by simply timing the market.


Next is our mid-tier option, Woods’ 2001 Upper Deck Base in PSA 10. With a pop count of over 13,000, this card is incredibly accessible. It’s traded 32 times the last 14 days, giving investors confidence to sell this card for profits when sell markers present themselves. Woods has recently noted he’s not only looking to play in Majors this year, but also hopes to play 1x a month. Look to snipe this card around the $200 range and be ready for it to jump up above $300 when the Masters returns in 2024, or when Woods contends on a Sunday.


Our high-end pick for Woods is his 2001 SP Authentic Stars Auto in PSA 10. With few options available for sale and this card being /900, it will be more difficult to find this pop 134 option as well as determine accurate pricing. We recommend using eBay’s completed transactions filter to determine accurate comps. While we understand this option is out of the price range for many, it sits near a 4-year low in valuation and can provide serious upside for those willing to shell out the up front investment, as it is down 25% the last 180 days.
