About Card Stock Exchange
In January of 2019, two Texas A&M classmates from the business and engineering schools and I incorporated Card Stock-Exchange, L.L.C., to create the world’s first online stock market for trading cards. Card Stock-Exchange, an idea conceptualized in high school and incorporated in college while at the Mays School of Business, has enjoyed early success; it was accepted into the highly selective Texas A&M McFerrin entrepreneurial program in 2018, my freshman year. I am learning with help from industry experts how to build a company from the ground up. After countless hours of building pitch decks, writing business and hiring plans and executive summaries, our hard work is beginning to pay off. We took 1st Place in the undergraduate category of the extremely prestigious 2019 Rice University Napier Launch Challenge and became finalists in the 2019 Texas A&M Aggie PITCH competition. In November 2019, Texas A&M selected us to represent our school at the esteemed and influential Blackstone Launchpad pitch competition in New York City. Twenty-four schools from across the country competed, with one team representing each school. We competed mostly against graduate students. After two strenuous days of competition, we placed in the Top 6 out of 24.
We plan to set the narrative for how trading cards are bought and sold. This platform will allow people throughout the world to buy and sell trading cards the same way they buy and sell stocks. They will be able to track and value their portfolio using investment tools like those used to track and value the stock market. Buying and selling trading cards will become accessible on a global scale through our platform.
With years of industry experience under our belt, we have the connections and industry knowledge to bring Card Stock-Exchange – a new stock market for trading cards – to the forefront of the alternate invest movement. We plan to bring authenticity and transparency to an industry that needs a central exchange.
