Zion Williamson 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.

Zion Williamson

The Reward

The Reward: In spite of his recent injury history, the dude is still only 21 years old, and averaged 27 PPG in 33 MPG in 61 games last year, shooting 61.1% from the field.

The media loves to blow things out of proportion, and the Twitter-verse is great at making outrageous claims and predictions, but the reality is, Zion will be back on the basketball court at some point in the near future, likely full strength, and will eventually get into basketball shape.

When this happens, we should see Giannis-level domination from him.

What's also interesting to think about is that in addition to him coming back from injury, there are a couple things that could help his card value:

  1. A trade
  2. Remaining in New Orleans to play with a very much improved Pelicans surrounding cast

The Risk

The Risk: The obvious risk is that Zion is injured, out-of-shape, and unmotivated. But his low end card prices have plummeted so much vs. where they were last year, that he is the perfect risk/reward investment if you have a high tolerance. You're pretty much buying in at the floor, making him a great opportunity in spite of the obvious concerns.

Another risk is POP count. He has more base PSA 10s than just about any other player, meaning there will likely always be a huge supply of his base cards. Thus far in his career, the demand has been high enough to keep the value up, but that demand will be based on his future performance.
