Startup investors and collectibles investors have a lot in common. They both need to evaluate potential investments with little to no track records — whether it’s a very early stage startup or a baseball card featuring a rookie player — and they both take on a lot of risk.
The analogy isn’t perfect. In many ways, collectibles investing is far riskier than startup investing. But in principle, the two are similar.
At least, that’s what Early Investing Senior Editor Allison Brickell believes. Early Investing co-founder Andy Gordon just about fell out of his chair when she suggested it. So we thought we would share our lively debate in today’s Early Investing Podcast. Tune in to hear some sparks fly — and Andy begrudgingly admit Allison isn’t totally off base. And let us know who you think is right!
Thanks for watching!
