TIE LEGO Investment Portfolio Update - October 2022
A first look at where I've allocated my capital and plan of attack moving forward.
If the idea of investing in LEGOs sounds crazy, do yourself a favor and read this recent post of mine:
After researching the idea for several months, I have spent the past month building a portfolio of soon-to-retire LEGO sets.
I’m not the first person to discuss this online, but I guarantee you I’m the first to document their LEGO investment performance in public.
Not only that, but performance will account for selling fees when calculated. Most people on YouTube talking about this leave that part out intentionally.
We aren’t insecure around here, so you get the real life numbers.
I will be displaying which sets I own, the price I paid, and how they are performing in real time.
My investment strategy is straight-forward:
Only buy sets that have already retired or will be retiring at end of year
Pay at least 20% below MSRP (not counting exclusive sets) or do not buy
If sets can lock in 50%+ ROI after selling fees within 6 months of ownership, sell
Hold what remains until Q4 of the following year (12-15 month hold time), sell
I will get into how I choose the sets I buy when I disclose the sets I own down below.
This is quite similar to my sealed trading card portfolio, however I expect the returns to be much higher.
Let’s dive in to the inaugural edition of the LEGO Investment Portfolio Update series.
