Wander Franco 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.

The Reward

Coming off of a subpar second season, Wander Franco might be in my favorite buying window of his career. Everyone has since moved on from the Wander hype, and most people were just in it to make a few dollars. Now that the retail investor has left Wander behind, it is time for us to buy back in on him. The Rays still love him as they signed him to a 12-year big league deal worth up to $223 million, and we still love him, too, at NoOffseason.

He is still an elite shortstop that will be a crucial piece to a late-season Rays team that will compete for East titles, All-Star nods, and surely a World Series run or two in his time in Tampa.

The Risk

The price. There will be investors that were let on the buying curve in the last rally that will have a lot of money invested in their Wander cards, so they might have little wiggle room. On the other hand, the great thing about Wander is that his other cards are out there. So be patient on a good deal.
