Tyler Glasnow was born on 8/23/1993 and was selected in the 5th round of the 2011 MLB June Amateur Draft from William S. Hart HS (Santa Clarita, CA) by the Pittsburgh Pirates.
We’re going to go out on a limb here, but we think Glasnow will have a CY Young-type year and maybe even win the award. Glasnow is a horse and has the stuff to back it up. He stands a neck-aching 6 foot eight inches and has filthy stuff. If he can put together a healthy, injury-free season, we think he will be the best pitcher in the game.
We also like the fact that his rookie cards are dirt cheap and can be had for the price of a large soda. So if he does flop or gets injured, you are not out a ton of money. Here are the best Tyler Glasnow rookie cards from an investment standpoint.

The 2013 Glasnow Bowman Chrome rookie card is the one we are loading up on. We are buying the base card, autos, refractors, and all of the parallels we have a piece of. If you believe in Glasnow like we do go ahead and buy a bunch of his base Bowman Chrome rookie cards and thank us later.

2017 Tyler Glasnow Topps Chrome Sapphire RC #349
The best looking of all this rookie cards and possibly owning the top ROI as well.
2017 Tyler Glasnow Topps Heritage Auto RC Real One #ROA-TG
Here is another Glasnow rookie card we are loading up on. The card is numbered Topps-ROA-TG, and we like the stone-cold look of the card with the light blue backdrop. This card has a HUGE upside if Tyle can put together the season we think he is capable of.
2017 Tyler Glasnow Immaculate Collection RC Jersey Patch
Here is a nice patch Glasnow rookie card in which only 99 were made. You won’t see this card up on eBay that often, but if you do, we suggest gobbling it up if you can get it at a decent price (don’t buy an ungraded version, however, as Immaculate cards have a reputation for being pretty beaten up in our experience).
2017 Topps Heritage Josh Bell/Tyler Glasnow Rookie Stars RC
Finally, the 2017 Topps Heritage Glasnow/Bell rookie card combines two of the best Pirate prospects at the time. Josh Bell had a breakout year in 2019, jacking 37 homers with 116 RBIs (yes, please).

We could be wrong, but we think Glasnow will have a massive 2020 and has an outside chance of winning the CY Young. That being said we are buying Glasnow rookie cards by the boatload. Tyler Glasnow was 6-1 in 2019 with a mind-blowing 76 strikeouts in 60 innings, with a 1.78 ERA (.890 WHIP). If he can stay healthy in 2023/2024, WATCH OUT!
