Sports Cards Roundup

Welcome to Sports Cards Insider – FREE Version.

We use Moneyball tactics to discover undervalued, mispriced, and hidden gems in Fractional Investing.

The format for these updates is evolving over the next couple of weeks, so please do give feedback. As ever, we’re going for more signal and less noise.

Last Week

Fractional secondary markets

It was a mixed week for sports cards as wrestling and tennis were up while nearly everything else was down.

All stats come from assets trading on the secondary markets at Otis, Collectable, and Rally

CardLadder’s CL50 Index, which tracks 50 Blue Chip sports cards (plus the 1999 Pokemon Charizard 1st Edition Holo), was largely flat on the week.

This Week

New IPOs

There’s not much to like about the sports cards IPOs this week, and we’ve recommended against all of them.
