Jack Nicklaus Rookie

Welcome to Sports Cards Insider – FREE Version. We use Moneyball tactics to discover undervalued, mispriced, and hidden gems in Fractional Investing.

Today is a deep dive into our first golf card asset:

  • Jack Nicklaus 1973 Panini PSA 10 – IPOs 6th April on Rally

What is the Jack Nicklaus 1973 Panini PSA 10?

This is a rookie card for legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus. This card is part of a much larger set called Panini Campioni dello Sport comprising loads of sporting legends including Mohammad Ali, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Johan Cruyff, Pele, and Billie Jean King.

There are only 65 of these registered with PSA, and just four of them are PSA 10.

This is a very low population card that precedes the much more widely available 1981 Donruss card (pop 2,576) that some consider his second rookie.

It IPOs on Rally 6th April

Cultural Relevance

The Golden Bear won 117 professional golf tournaments in his career, including six wins at the Masters, five at the PGA Championship, four at the US Open, and three at The Open Championship.

He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame’s Inaugural class in 1974 while still an active player.

All these publications named him either the greatest golfer or athlete:

  • Sports Illustrated
  • Golf Magazine
  • Associated Press
  • Golfweek
  • Golf World
  • ESPN
  • BBC

Around a dozen publications named him Golfer of the Century or Millennium.

He’s also got a Congressional Gold Medal.

His list of awards is the largest I’ve ever seen for an athlete.

Considered by most to be the second-greatest golfer of all time, he still has more Majors wins than number one, Tiger Woods.

Growth Outlook and Future Catalysts

Jack Nicklaus is a legend, and there are only four of these cards. While golf is undeniably second-tier in terms of viewership, over 24m Americans play the game / sport. This card has a lot of room to appreciate.

Asset Liquidity

This will have a roughly 90 day lockup period then will trade quarterly.

Platform Risk

The scarcity of this card is nearly Gretzky-esque. Also, Jack Nicklaus nearly became a pharmacist.

Disclosure: I’ll be buying my share limit of this card when it IPOs.
