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.
Were going to out on a limb here but we think Glasnow is going to 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 your not out a ton of money.
Here are the best Tyler Glasnow rookie cards from an investment standpoint.
2013 Tyler Glasnow Bowman Chrome Rookie Card #BCATG (buy on eBay)
The 2013 Glasnow Bowman Chrome rookie card is the card we are loading up on. We are buying the base card, autos, refractors, basically, all of the parallels we have a pierce 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 Heritage Auto RC Real One #ROA-TG (buy on eBay)
Here is another Glasnow rookie card we are loading up on.
The card is numbered Topps-ROA-TG and we really like the stone-cold look of the card with the light blue backdrop.
This card has HUGE upside if Tyle can put together the season we think he is capable of.
2017 Tyler Glasnow Immaculate Collection RC Jersey Patch (buy on eBay)
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 of being pretty beat up in our experience).
2017 Topps Heritage Josh Bell/Tyler Glasnow Rookie Stars RC (buy on eBay)
Finally, the 2017 Topps Heritage Glasnow/Bell rookie card combines two of the best Pirate prospects at the time.
Josh Bell had a break out year in 2019 jacking 37 homers with 116 RBI’s (yes please).
This is a solid investment for fans of Bell and Glasnow… if your not a Bell fan avoid this card and just buy the Bowman Chrome Glasnow rookie card.

Tyler Glasnow was 6-1 in 2019 with a mind-blowing 76 strikeouts in 60 innings to go along with a 1.78 ERA (.890 WHIP).
If he can stay healthy in 2020 WATCH OUT!
