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

Maxey is only 21 years old and already entrenched as the starting PG in Philly. The 21st pick in the 2020 NBA Draft from Kentucky played extremely well towards the end of the 2020-21 season, and took full advantage of Ben Simmons' absence in 2021-22 before the club dealt Simmons for James Harden.

Not only can he play PG, but he can score the shit out of the ball when Harden plays point.

This makes Maxey a super exciting sports card investment, especially with Philly hell bent on making playoff runs as long as Joel Embiid is on the court.

We think he's a million times better than James Harden and with Embiid breaking down, Maxey projects to be Philly's All-Star and #1 player in a few years.

He has solid Hobby Hype and a growing market of investors interested in acquiring his cards.

The Risk

In the short term, now that Harden is in town, it's good and bad for Maxey. The good is that there's increased consistency and a plan in place to go for the NBA Championship over the next couple years. The bad news is that Embiid is 1, Harden 2 and Maxey 3. It's hard to see true value in a third star's cards in one market, so Maxey investors will most likely have to be patient before a real sustainable spike happens.
