Sports Cards in 2022
Firstly, as a reminder, here’s my view on sports cards sectors for 2022.
-All soccer, especially vintage
-Hockey, except for ultra blue-chip
Sports cards on fractional markets continue to slide in 2022 on fractional marketplaces:
Nearly all red over at CardLadder as well for the month with only wrestling (?) in the green..
The CL 50 is off more than 7% on the year.
Let’s see how individual sports are doing in 2022:
🏀 down 9.5%
⚾ up 7.4%
🏈 down 0.2%
🏒 down 9.3%
⚽ up 1.8%
🤼♂️ up 44%
🏌🏿♀️ up 44%
🏎️ up 26%
Fractional secondary markets
Another flattish week for sports cards, though it continued to trend down slightly.
Assets dropping on marketplaces
There’s a Stephen Curry “fund” dropping on Collectable today.
Goldin’s May Auction (which ends in June??) is up right now, but not much there catches my eye.
Though I did have to ask the team what this was:
As ever, keep an eye on the MJ rookie.
And in case you’re into pre-war cards, Heritage has a fantastic selection of T206 cards up now.
The auction ends in three days.
That’s all for this week.
