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.

Tre Jones

The Reward

In his 3rd season with the Spurs, the former 2nd round pick saw a huge uptick in minutes this season. Starting a majority of his games, Jones averaged 29mpg. His core stats are (12pt/6asst/3reb). He feels like the type of player who will have a long career because of his high basketball IQ. He’s not a volume scorer but more of a traditional point guard who can run a team. The value of his cards will probably never match how much he positively influences the game on the court. We’ll buy Tre Jones, as he seems to be the PG of the future for the Spurs who will return to the playoffs sometime in the next few years.

The Risk

Tre Jones lack of big numbers, will likely always be a roadblock in his cards really soaring. We like him for the player he is, and see him having a long successful career. Whether he ever makes it to the pinnacle, remains to be seen, and will likely determine what happens to his card market.
