Welcome to the new and improved Sports Cards Insider – FREE Version. Fewer words, fewer emails, more actionable info, other ways to invest in the athletes, and a weekly trading update to complement this rundown of IPOs.

This time, we’re covering investment opportunities for two GOATs, on future Hall of Famer, a prospect, and The Rock:

  • Ronald Acuna 2017 Bowman Basket BGS 10

Insiders get one dedicated email for each asset with more analysis, comps, and full valuations. We also give the AA Verdict for each card: a straight up Yes or No.

Muhammad Ali 1960 Hemmet Journal BGS 8

About the Asset

This is Ali’s first “card-like” card. Actually one of four images on a glossy page, these cards were cut out by hand.

Hemmets Journal was a Swedish publication translating to “Home Journal”, and this set was meant to commemorate the 1960 Olympic games.

The back of the card is printed in Swedish and translates to “the elegant 18-year-old Kentucky Negro, who won light heavyweight in Rome.” That may be a factor for some when deciding to invest.
