Here we will list 3 purchases we recently made for the Gold Card Auctions Investment Portfolio.
We will list the price and as an added bonus we will also include the line of thought behind each purchase.
For these three purchases we went with an obvious easy money play heading into the NFL season… invest in the best young QBs in the game and their best rookie cards (in this case Prizm).
Trending: Best LeBron James Rookie Cards
We feel these rookie cards should be an easy 20% ROI minimum (if not much more) by week 4 or 5 of the regular season.
Honestly, you could probably make an easy 10% if you simply buy and then sell the week before the regular season begins.
Please note Drew Lock is a somewhat high-risk play as he is not a proven NFL QB BUT with high risk comes a high reward… if you are not comfortable investing in this type of card please don’t do it as you will drive yourself crazy watching every snap he takes :).
If you have any questions about these purchases contact us on the Gold Card Auctions social media pages (Facebook, Twitter) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org… thanks and let’s hope we all can make some easy money investing in the hobby we love $$$ 🙂 🙂 :).
2019 Panini Prizm #301 Kyler Murray Arizona Cardinals RC Rookie
This was a SICK buy as this exact card was selling for more than $1,000 at the end of September… we are currently in the process of stockpiling Murray rookie cards with plans to sell when he wins his first NFL MVP (which could be this year)..
Purchase date/price: 10/5/2020 / $655
2018 Panini Prizm #280 Luka Doncic RC Rookie Mavericks BGS 9.5
Another awesome purchase as this card was also going for over $1k at one point in the summer of 2020… now is the best time to be loaded up on Luka rookie cards in preparation for the next NBA season that should be his best yet (in terms of personal best and playoff run).
Purchase date/price: 10/9/2020 / $712
2017 Patrick Mahomes II Panini Prizm RC BGS 9.5 #269
Purchase Date/Price: 8/12/2020 and $3,870
This is a no brainer and should earn an easy 20% ROI at a minimum unless we see some sort of fluke season-ending injury. Mahomes and the Chiefs are actually our picks to win the SuperBowl this year and if that happens this card will explode in value.
The only real question when investing in a Mahomes Prizm rookie card is when to sell 🙂
Again check out our Patrick Mahomes rookie card write-up to check out all the parallels associated with his Prizm rookie card.
Wrapping it all up
A good way to think of these investments is…
- Lock: high risk – super high return
- Mahomes: low risk – moderate/high return
- Watson: moderate risk – moderate/high return
