Tiger Woods 2001 Upper Deck BGS 10 Black

About the asset

This is a BGS 10 Black Label (that means all four subgrades are 10s) Tiger Woods rookie card from the 2001 Upper Deck set.

Only 0.3% of the 2001 UD Tiger Woods cards have been graded Black Label. Unfortunately, the denominator is quite large here — there are 89 black label cards in circulation, which is quite high.

Recent sales history and Valuation

[Detailed Valuation for Insiders]

Inferred value is $10k to $15k.

Other ways to invest in Tiger Woods

There’s a good case to be made that Tiger Woods is a good long-term investment. If you want to bet on him making a comeback, there are a couple of undervalued assets over on Collectable that you may want to look into.

Tom Brady 2000 Bowman Chrome BGS 10

About the asset

This is a BGS 10 graded 2000 Bowman Chrome Tom Brady card. Of 3,547 cards submitted to BGS, 102 have received a 10 with two earning 10 Black. There are an additional 3,442 of these with PSA (1,081 received a PSA 10), and potentially more with other grading services.

Note, this is *not* the refractor card, which is significantly rarer. I point that out, because of these three quotes from the Collectable write up:

  1. “one of the most important and iconic modern era productions”
  2. “a world-class commodity which should be heavily pursued by every investor”
  3. “there are few modern issues which hold the lure and desirability of the coveted 2000 Bowman Chrome Refractor Brady rookie.”

All three refer to the Refractor version of the card, not the base version. Link the the first quote, the second, and third.

There was another similar quote that I couldn’t find the source for.

They also say there are 108 BGS 10s, but Beckett only shows 102. They do show the correct figure later in the write up. Not sure what’s going on with this one ????‍♂️.

For this asset, Insiders also learned:

  • Projected growth trend
  • Full valuation
  • Asset class volatility
  • Our verdict on the asset as an investment
