The Houston Astros drafted Kyle Tucker (1/17/1997) with the 5th overall pick in the 2015 MLB June Amateur Draft from H. B. Plant High School. He made his major league debut on 7/7/2018 at 21 years old against the Chicago Whitesox and went 1 for 4 with 1 RBI.


Tucker should qualify as a rookie in the 2020 season as he is well on getting over 130 at-bats. In 2019 he batted .269 with 4 homers and 11 RBIs in 67 plate appearances.

Regarding Kyle Tucker RCs, we made the following statement in June 2019… “Until his inevitable full-time call up to the big show, investors have an excellent chance to pick up his rookie cards before the prices explode.”… it took a little longer than we expected. Still, if you repurchased some Tucker rookie cards in the summer of 2019 you are a thrilled man.

So let’s look at the best Kyle Tucker rookie cards on the market.


2015 Kyle Tucker Bowman Draft Chrome RC #75


Here is our top-rated Kyle Tucker rookie card regarding ROI, which dates back to 2015.

Numbered #75, the 2015 Bowman Draft Chrome Kyle Tucker rookie card shows him slapping a base knock down the 1st baseline, most likely for extra bases knowing his speed.

His name is placed along the right-hand side of the card, while the Houston Astros Logo is slabbed towards the bottom right corner. The Bowman Chrome logo is printed in the top left-hand corner, and the Bowman 1st wording is in the top right.

This card should have a ton of upside if Tucker’s 5 tool talent comes to fruition.

2015 Bowman Chrome Refractors: Blue Sky, Blue, Green, Gold, Orange /25, Red /5, Printing Plates, and Superfractors /1

Best Kyle Tucker Rookie Card: 2015 Bowman Chrome RC #75

We were starting to lose faith in ol’ Kyle, but once he finally got a regular job (in 2020), he showed that he is the actual 5 tool superstar many were predicting… at least, it’s looking that way so far.

It’s time to bust out all of our Kyle Tucker RC lots and send them in for grading or bounce them up on eBay for a tidy little profit.

We feel Tucker has a great career in front of him that could track very similar to team Alex Bregman.
