Sports Cards in 2022

Sports cards on fractional platforms continue to trade sideways with no clear indication of what they want to do.

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

Last Week in Sports Cards

Fractional secondary markets

Other than 11 assets trading from boxing and golf, the index was pretty tight last week. Lots of stuff just sort of simmering around, waiting to be told which way to go.

Conversely, five of the six indices on Alt were down last week despite longer-term upswings.

Things were mixed over at CardLadder as well. Football, golf, and hockey cards are down while basketball, soccer, baseball, and wrestling cards are ticking up.

I’m still surprised to see baseball surging anywhere, given the labor dispute raging.
