More and more people are trying to turn their passions and hobbies into a lucrative business, and while this doesn’t work for everything, it seems to be working for most things. One such hobby-turned-business you may not know about is sports cards. Sports card trading and selling picked up traction in the pandemic and has yet to slow down, with certain cards selling for over a million dollars.
One of the biggest names in sports cards is Eric Michael. Michael is the co-founder of Major League Profits, a multi-million-dollar business that informs people about selling cards and helps them earn passive income doing so. Michael and his business partner didn’t join this niche industry at the very start, but they have quickly taken it by storm. As Major League Profits gains even more traction, the question on everyone’s mind is who is Michael? And, subsequently, can he really help us make extra money?
Meet the King of Sports Cards
Michael is from Wayne, New Jersey, and he credits his upbringing to his entrepreneurial spirit and tenacity.
“One of my earliest motivators for entrepreneurship was seeing the commute my father made to NYC every day,” said Michael. “We were a middle-class family living in an upper-middle-class neighborhood, and we were only able to live there because of the sacrifices my father made. This inspired me to work hard to provide for my family in a way that didn’t require constant sacrifice.”
Being a middle-class family in an area with other families living above your income bracket results in not being able to do the things other people in your neighborhood and school are able to do. Add this to Michael’s quirky personality, and he was an outcast that got bullied and made fun of a lot, simply for the fact that he was different from the other kids in ways that don’t actually matter.
While this bullying could have beaten him down and made him think less of himself, it instead instilled in him mental toughness and the confidence to continue being exactly who he was. Embracing his uniqueness, Michael began his first foray into entrepreneurship by putting on magic shows with a friend of his. This experience ended up being rather lucrative for young Michael and his friend, as they would earn $100 for roughly 30 minutes of work.
Staying true to his roots, it should come as no surprise that Michael found success in another niche market—sports cards. Applying his mental toughness and confidence to this specific industry has resulted in him earning the title of The King of Sports Cards.
The Start of Major League Profits
After a couple of failed entrepreneurial ventures, Michael decided to try his hand at buying and selling sports cards, and he actually entered the industry in 2015, well before it became what it is today. After losing all of his money on his dropshipping, he got a loan from his brother and started to travel the country buying more cards. In 2019, he called up someone he knew while in college and discovered that they shared an entrepreneurial spirit and decided to partner up on this venture.
They dedicated countless hours to putting together a business plan and made the decision to invest all of their money into a mentor that promised them he would teach them how to find success. When they only made a total of two sales under his tutelage, they decided to quit while they were ahead and figure out something else. After trying something else for a little while, Michael’s business partner suggested they get back into the cards and try it just one more time.
“I honestly thought it was a stupid idea to try again, but we spent that day putting together ads and a website and officially launched it all in March of 2020. Within a couple of hours, we had blown up. We received 15 calls from people interested,” he said. “We had 40 people join our program in the first month we were running. By 2022, our business had grown four times the size.”
Michael has officially made all of his dreams come true about earning an income and providing for his family in a way that differs from what he saw growing up. Now that he has found success, he is even more passionate about helping others find it too.
Major League Profits was created to teach others how to make a passive income stream with sports cards, but now they offer a masterclass and coaching calls where they offer to do it all for you. Anyone interested in joining this lucrative business should look no further than Michael and Major League Profits.
