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.

The Reward

All things considered, Tua had a great third season. Many thought he wouldn't last long as the starter in 2022, but he played 13 games, led the Dolphins to an 8-5 record as the starter, throwing for 3,548 yards, 25 TDs and only 8 picks.

He plays on an explosive offense with exciting weapons like Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, which puts him in a position to make highlight reel plays every week and put up huge numbers if he stays healthy.

Speaking of that, had he stayed healthy in 2022 for a full season, there's a solid chance the Dolphins would have made it much further in the playoffs.

The upside here is HUGE, and the Dolphins have already named him their starting QB for 2023.

The Risk

The downside is pretty obvious. Concussions. Hip injuries were one thing, but concussions are a whole other and can end careers much faster.

We think Tua will be okay for the long term, but it's still scary, and risky to invest too much money into him.
