We're gonna start off the Sports Card Category with some of the best bets to increase in value over the next 7-8 years. These are gonna be your ultra superstars whose names will be talked about long after their playing days are over. We should also state, ALWAYS BUY PSA 10 WHEN INVESTING. Unless you are flipping cards or just adding your favorite player to your PC, ALWAYS BUY PSA 10. It will hold it's value far better than other graded slabs, and the card comes protected so no need to worry about keeping a raw card in mint condition. Now let's jump in.

Patrick Mahomes 2017 Prizm Rookie

Well this is an easy pick and it's pretty obvious. Mahomes has 2 Super Bowl Wins, 2 SB MVPS, and 2 Regular Season MVPs. But best of all? He's got about 8-10 years of "prime" left. It's nearly a forgone conclusion that Mahomes will win another Super Bowl, it's just a matter of how many? He's the greatest QB TALENT the world has ever seen, and investing in any of his rookie cards for the long-haul should be a safe bet. If you don't have the nearly $4,000 for a PSA 10 version of his silver Prizm rookie, look to other products like Optic or Select.

Giannis Antetokounmpo 2013 Silver Select Rookie

Another easy pick, Giannis is the face of the league once LeBron retires. Not Luka, not Tatum, it will still be Giannis. The only downside I can see to this card is how an injury could majorly derail Giannis's career. But to that I say, why hasn't it happened already? The guy is an athletic anomaly that's already won a championship, and seemingly should win another within the next 6 years of his prime. If the $4k price tag on this card in PSA 10 is a bit steep for you, look at Prizm Base and Select Base cards.

Mike Trout 2011 Topps Update RC

Maybe the most iconic "modern" sports card, Mike Trout is the greatest baseball player of this generation. Even without a World Series ring, he has 3 MVPs, finished 2nd in MVP voting another 3 times, won AL ROY and has 9 Silver Sluggers to go along with it. I don't see the lack of a World Series hurting the value of this card, but rather the opportunity for a World Series win to send this card to the moon. If you can't shell out $1700 for a PSA 10 of this card, look at 2011 Bowman Draft and of Trout as an alternative.

Nice picks, genius. Really reached for these 3. Personally, my pick would be a Tom Brady NFL patch rookie card.. Jackass…
