“I had no idea what I was doing but I love sports. I sat down and watched the course in a day and I revisit all the time because there's so much info to review. I could not be happier with the information and content in this course.”

San Diego, CA

“...tons of information, great examples that allow me to understand words to visuals and really grasp some card investing fundamentals.”


“Always loved sports and have always been able to spot talent in a league early. Sports cards hobby actually allows me to profit from that and enjoy it even more. I never realized how much there was to learn and how each set, brand is different and what cards to go after. After purchasing this course and spending an afternoon on it I can't imagine getting involved in investing without it.”


“Tons of info in the course. Had to watch it 3 times and take notes and I still hear new things every time. Prof. Long has great insights and so cool that he does this for a living. What a dream.”


“Great videos, great content, tons of extra bonus stuff. Watching the professor open a box and speak to each card in the box alone was worth the price of admission.”
