Name some you think will do well in the NFL, and where they attended college. Im looking to buy their rookie cards as long term investments. I check out the stats, but like to get other peoples opinions. Thanks for your help.
Consider investing in something else...this ship sailed in the early 90s when Upper Deck killed the market...from 1982-1990 my dad enabled me to build a glorious collection of rookie cards in all 4 sports...when i pass it over to my kids, 80-90% of every card within the collection will be cards of HOFs in at mininum 9.0/10 condition...every sports top 10 GOATS, i GOTS
Those were the days!
Funny one. i can always use a laugh. Seriously though, thats the way most major sports are. at least, here in the usa.
with all due respect, this ship may have sailed. but, it did not sink. i have been buying and selling cards since the 1970s, yes i am getting old. the UD scandal wasnt the first, and it wont be the last. the card market has one going on right now. PSA and some major dealers are being sued for trimming and altering. the case and trial is ongoing.
A few current values. 1996 box topps chrome baseball 20 packs $3300---Lebron james 2003 rookie card $6000, and there are plenty more. you can check these prices out on ebay, SCD, many other sites. these prices are what they sell at auction, not asking price
Thanks for all the comments. Im not asking for free info. im willing to share. Here are 3 Seniors worth looking at, that are not in the top 10 in stats. i do buy the top 10. but, as there 100s of propects every year, its hard to research them all. I normally buy 20 to 50 each. cost is normally around $1.75 each.
All 3 average around 6 yards a carry, with over a 1000 for the season.

I will list a more in a few days
I was out of town for about 10 days seeing friends. back home and getting ready for the nfl draft. its on the 23rd or 24th of this month. i will list some of the players rookie cards i will be buying once they come out. i will normally be buying 8 to 10 players in each of the first three rounds. most all qbs, rbs, and wrs. these are usually the players with the best chance of making money with rookies.
Agree. especially if he has a average or better than average offensive line. i would thought he would go in the middle of the 1st. probably one of the best running backs available. definitely will be buying his rookie cards.
Not worth it. Spent thousands on cards and now are worthless LOL
The only cards doing well on GOATs! For example, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and Tom brady are holding their value but otherwise NOT worth it in investing.
that's not the least bit true. mike trout and zion rookies are going for 1000's right now. topps sapphire chromes are insanely expensive. the mosaic nba cards that dropped have sold out of every wal mart in stores for the ja morant rookies. hell, people are selling joe burrow prizm's for a few hundred. keep in mind, there's homers all over the world that don't mind spending the dough.
Money can be made. i didnt say it was easy. i just got back in the card market around febuary of last year. i was out for long time do to health issues. the trading card market is basically like a mini stock market. there are short and long term investments. i do both. right now short term with the nfl draft is a good place to be. if you buy most all the qbs, rbs, and wrs, in the first 3 rounds. you will probably make money every year doing this.this also works with baseball, football,. probably hockey also. but i dont invest in hockey cards. i will usually buy 20 to 50 each. now this is what ive learned from dealing with cards since the 1970s. its risky like most any investments. when to get in, when to get out, and when to hold are a few of the big keys to making dollars in this market
Yes, in the short term money can be made in sports cards however in the long run IMHO 90% of all cards will drop in value. I agree with OlDirtyBaztid that there are hardcore collectors that will spend the dough on cards. For me it was the "rush" (exactly like gambling) of opening up boxes and sometime cases of sports card just to pull a expensive rookie auto of any sport.
MJ Goat's 86-87 Fleer...is the only card I would consider buying if the price was right for a gem mint 10...
Yes, that would probably be the only basketball card I would purchase in PSA 10 or BGS 9.5 in graded condition. A lot of fakes out there for that particular card. Easily over 10 grand in mint to Gem condition! Pay close attention to corners and edges
Haha. yeah its a rush. as you said, quite a bit like gambling. i bought a box of nba hoops a couple of weeks ago for $21. that is a cheap box by most any standards. i pulled 2 zions. one worth 70 and the other worth 20. i got lucky. to me, buying boxes is like buying lotto tickets. i dont buy alot of boxes or packs, and i dont receommend it, but you can get lucky. i buy about a box a week and look at it just like to lotto.
