Kyle Tucker (1/17/1997) was drafted by the Houston Astros 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 the age of 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 his way to getting over 130 at-bats. In 2019 he batted .269 with 4 homers and 11 RBIs in 67 plate appearances.
In regards to Kyle Tucker RCs we made the following statement in June of 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 but if you bought some Tucker rookie cards back in the summer of 2019 you are a very happy man right now 🙂
