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.
As the world anxiously awaits the release of Season 3 of the hit series, named after the main character, played by Jason Sudekis, EA Sports just announced that FIFA 2023 will feature the fictional Premier League club AFC Richmond, which was infamously related to The Championship following Season 1 of the show.
The game will feature the club, fresh with head coach Ted Lasso, complete in franchise mode.
When the game releases and when Season 3 airs, there will be massive attention around the TV series, and it's sports card prices could rise considerably.
Wait, what? There are Ted Lasso Sports Cards? Yep. Not only for Ted, but for other characters like Roy Kent, Coach Beard and Nate Shelley.
For which cards to buy, read below, or listen to this special edition of the Sports Card Strategy Show.
Even though you'd be buying a GOAT with tens of millions of fans, there isn't a huge market for Ted Lasso cards, and probably not much upside for flippers, but it's still fun to think about the possibilities of what could happen in the future with his investable cards.
