Sports Memorabilia Insider – Dec 9, 2021

Welcome to Sports Memorabilia Insider for 9th December 2021.

We use Moneyball tactics to discover undervalued, mispriced, and hidden gems in Fractional Investing.

After a slight recovery in the week prior, sports memorabilia continued its weak 2021 performance with a 1% decline last week.

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

Last Week

Fractional secondary markets

Though small in number of assets, sports photographs did their best to offset other subcategory losses as it returned 13.5% for the week with the Ty Cobb photo on Collectable providing the bulk of the returns with a 27.1% return.

Football and baseball memorabilia were the laggards with declines of 2.3% and 2.0% respectively. Second-tier game-used bats seemed to fall out of favor as the Jimmie Foxx bat (-20.8%) and Michael Jordan bat (-14.3%) both declined.

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

Two assets currently at auction represent reasonable comps to assets currently trading on fractional platforms.

1953 World Series Game Six Ticket Stub (Heritage December Sports Showcase Auction)

  • Heritage has three different tickets from the 1953 World Series on auction; this was Mickey Mantle’s third year with the club.
  • Collectable has a 1951 Opening Day ticket for Mickey’s MLB debut IPOing soon; strong results above the auction estimate for these three tickets would be a strong indicator for the Collectable offering.
  • Robert Edwards recently sold a 1951 World Series ticket featuring Mantle’s First World Series hit for $360.00

1930s Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig Dual-Signed Baseball (Lelands Late Fall Classic 2021)

  • Collectable has a similar 1933 dual signed Ruth/Gehrig baseball currently trading at a $76,000 market cap.
  • The Collectable offering is in better condition (a PSA 7.5) than the Lelands offering (PSA 5), but can be used as a comp; the Lelands offering is at $4,281 with three days left.
