Treylon Burks Sports Card Investment Report

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.

TREYLON BURKS

The Reward

The 18th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft has faired well so far in his NFL career, taking over the starting role in Tennessee as the team's #1 WR. While he's a bit smaller than Drake London, and a bit less exciting of a playmaker, he still has a ton of upside, and a very loyal fanbase from Arkansas.

The Risk

Because he doens't have a flashy playmaking style, and plays in more of a lunch pale, blue collar type style team in Tennessee, without a star QB, there is a lower ceiling here. I think he is much more of a fantasy football dynasty star than a legitimate sports card investment.

Injury.

From TitanWire.USAToday.com - in Week 4...

Tennessee Titans 2022 first-round pick and wide receiver Treylon Burks suffered a foot injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 4 win against the Indianapolis Colts that led to his being carted to the locker room.

It was an odd series of events. Burks hurt his foot on one play but was unable to get off the field in time before the Titans ran another, thus forcing him to remain on the field for the next play despite being clearly hobbled.

After said play, Burks went down to the ground and had to be helped off the field. He was then carted to the locker room and ruled out for the rest of the contest.

Following the 24-17 Titans win, Burks was spotted leaving the locker room on crutches, per multiple reports, which would seem to indicate there is bad news coming for his injury.
