Short term, mid-term, and long term options will all be discussed.

Short Term = 1 year or less

Mid Term = 1 to 5 years

Long Term – 5 years +

Here are your best short term options…


Derek Jeter 1993 SP Foil #279

derek jeter rookie card

We love love LOVE this card as a short term investment due to the likely price break out once he is unanimously elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Even if the HOF vote is not unanimous we still predict at least a nice increase between now and then.

The back of the card reads “The first high school player taken (and the sixth overall selection) in the 1992 draft, Jeter hit a .324 clip for Class-A Greensboro in the first half of 1993.

We suggest investing in PSA 6, 7, 8, or 9’s and BGS 8, 8.5, 9 or 9.5.

Anthony Davis 2012 Panini Prizm Rookie Card #236

Anthony Davis 2012 Panini Prizm Rookie Card #236

We love this card as a short-term investment as we are all in on the Lakers winning the NBA title next year.

If that happens we could see a HUGE return on this card (100%?).

Even if the Lakers fail to win it all the Anthony Davis Panini Prizm Rookie Card should still increase drastically in value plus their a decent chance Mr. Davis could win the NBA MVP.

Luka Doncic 2018 Panini Prizm (any & all versions)

luka doncic

We have not seen anything like Luka in the NBA for a while.

This kid truly has it all and we would be shocked not to see this him walking around with multiple NBA Championship Rings and MVP awards 15 years from now.

Best Mid Term Card Investments

  1. Albert Pujols 2001 Bowman Rookie Card #264: Albert Pujols rookie cards are a great investment right now as they should only go up in the next few years in the lead up to his HOF election. Pujols’s rookie cards are at the bottom right now as he is not the offensive player he used to be. Give it a few years and the Albert Pujols 2001 Bowman Rookie Card will be the talk of the industry. Invest in PSA 8, 9 or 10’s and BGS 9 or 9.5.
  2. 2000 Topps Chrome Traded Miguel Cabrera Rookie Card #T40: We feel many people forget how could Miggy was. Were talking a career .315 hitter with 477 homers to date. Miggy numbers are SICK and this Topps Chrome card will take off once he enters the HOF (1st ballot vote!).

Best Long Term Card Investments

  1. Ty Cobb T206 HOF Red Portrait Piedmont #350: Ty Cobb T206 cards are an excellent investment and should steadily rise year in year out. The red and green backgrounds are some of the more popular versions and are a MUST for all collectors.
  2. Ken Griffey Jr. 1989 Upper Deck Rookie Card: This a true no brainer.  This is an iconic card to millions of kids who came to age in the late 1980s, early 1990s. It’s the signature card of an era when the hobby reached its highest highs. We have seen the card steadily climb in value every year since we started tracking it.
  3. Ty Cobb 1909-11 T206 BAT OFF SHOULDER #350: The iconic Ty Cobb “bat off shoulder” T206 card is another great long term play. We love the multi-color background and his stone-cold stare off into the distance.
