A message from the founder

I purchased a T206 Red Back Ty Cobb in 2015. In 2021 I sold it for a 1200% return. From that point on I have been “investing” in high-dollar collectibles. Some in the industry do not like the word investing when it comes to sports cards. I get that to a point but in my eyes certain cards (i.e. Ty Cobb T206) and collectibles (first edition Spiderman comic book) qualify as an investment. On the other hand, the Prizm Brock Purdy rookie card is not an investment. It is a fun purchase that could very well turn out to be profitable.

Have fun and cheers!
