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.
Tony Pollard showed off some great speed and recognition during the 2021 season. He had 130 attempts at running back with 719 total yards. That’s a lot of stats for someone who is a second-stringer to Ezekiel Elliott.
Pollard’s 5.5 yards per run in 2021 is more than Elliott has had in any season. It tied for the fifth-highest in the NFL. Pollard’s 6.2 yards per touch that same year ranked second among running backs and is far more than Elliott’s career-high of 5.6.
The 2019 fourth-rounder seems to have a great future ahead of him at the moment. With a running back who is growing older in front of him, he’s looking to become a steady second stringer and a double-threat running back duo with Elliott.
Pollard will for sure grow in his stats with more attempts and yards per run this year. In this upcoming season, it would be good to keep an eye on him for some explosive plays and more snaps.
The only position which yields huge returns is Quarterback, so that’s the risk in investing in Pollard.
Nonetheless, Pollard is talented and skilled in his position, so there are a few less risky plays you can make which are set out in the section below.
