Soccer is the Next Basketball

For most collectors the last six months have seen an unprecedented appreciation for basketball cards. Names like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luka Doncic have seen their top cards triple in that span. Factor in a stellar rookie class led by Zion Williamson and Ja Morant and everything from wax to graded singles are on-fire.

Now we’re seeing a similar chart trend for soccer cards. As with basketball, its driven by young superstars like Kylian Mbappe, Joao Felix, Christian Pulisic and Mason Greenwood. Twenty years ago most Americans could only name Pele and Diego Maradona as international footballers.

But over the last two decades, the double GOAT tandem of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have earned an American following. Factor in a generation of young men and women who have grown up playing the game and the market is clear.

As collectors look for new growth markets soccer appears to be in full bloom.
