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.
Yeremy Pino is 19 years old and plays mainly as a right-winger for La Liga club Villarreal and the Spanish National Team.
Pino already played for the youth teams of The Yellow Submarine at the age of 16. Due to his strong performance, Pino climbed the ladder and rose from €30 million to €40 million.
The agile and prickly Pino has been captivating the league over the last two seasons and becoming sixth in La Liga for goals per shot. He is ninth for goal-creating actions per ninety minutes, outperforming both his expected goals and assists.
This shining right-winger has drawn attention to himself with his brilliance and has extended his contract with Villarreal until 2027 in November.
His investors are hoping that he'd then transfer to a larger club at the age of 23, and garner more international attention to present a solid sales opportunity.
There is not much risk in Yeremy’s cards as he has been a consistently steady player and also his cards are pretty cheap. Given his early stellar start to his career, a higher ceiling is achievable in the upcoming years.
