Jack Flaherty was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals with the 34th pick in the 1st round on the 2014 MLB Draft… he is turning out to be one of the best picks in the entire draft and is once again showing the league why the Cardinals are constantly in the MLB Playoffs and never seem to have a down season.
Jack Flaherty is consumed with winning and putting in the work to be the best of the best… some pitchers have the talent, some pitchers have the work ethic BUT rarely do the two combine and that is when you have a potential all-time great.

This hard work and dedication to improving his craft are what makes Flaherty one to really watch over the next 3 to 5 years.
We think he could rise to the level of a Kershaw and maybe better (yes he is that good).
His 2019 post-All-Star break numbers were absolutely mind-blowing and NOW is the time to get in on Jack Flaherty RCs before they blow up and reflect just how good of a pitcher he truly is.

As we mentioned in the opening we think he could rise to the level of a Kershaw and maybe even better.
We consider all Flaherty rookie cards to be extremely undervalued.
Unfortunately for Cardinal fans, Flaherty has made it almost certain he will not be playing for the Cardinals after 2023 as he will be asking for max money and that is something the Cardinals don’t do.
Hopefully, the Cards can get a World Series MVP and a CY Young from Flaherty before he bolts town for New Tork or Los Angeles… at any rate, someone will be getting a stud pitcher in the prime of his career.
