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

The 13th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft got hot in the bubble at the end of his rookie season, cooled off big time in his second year, but bounced back big time in 2021-22, averaging career highs in points (20.7), assists (4.0) and shooting a career best 39% from three and 86% at the free throw line, helping him earn Sixth Man of the Year Honors.

He's always someone capable of getting hot at the right time, and loves the spotlight, meaning there should be plenty of hype spikes in his future to sell his cards for a profit.

The Risk

Even though he has cultural relevance, swagger and hobby hype, Herro is far from the #1 guy in Miami. That clearly belongs to Jimmy Butler. Even still, he will be a big part of any success the Heat have moving forward, and is pretty low risk at this point, as his card prices have come down quite a bit since their peak in 2020-21.
