Miami Heat is off to a great start in 2019 and the play of rookie shooting guard Tyler Herro is one big reason for it.
The 14th overall draft pick is already displaying his potential off the bench and his rookie card value is trending in a positive direction.
All his early issued cards will technically be his college or prospect cards but for all intents and purposes, we’ll classify them as his rookie cards.
For those looking to invest in a dark horse rookie of the year candidate, here are his 3 best rookie cards to collect.
1. 2019-20 Panini Contenders College Ticket Autograph Card
Here’s a recognizable subset from the Panini Contenders set which has its familiar College Ticket design.
There are a few image variations with Herro in his Kentucky Wildcats uniform.
The autograph card is fairly still affordable.
2. 2019-20 National Treasures Rookie Patch Autograph Card
For those looking for an autograph rookie card that also comes with a jersey patch, the National Treasures hobby box is a great place to look.
Like the aforementioned Panini Contenders set, this too comes in a couple of image variations. Plus the cards are serial numbered.
3. 2019-20 Panini Prizm Draft Picks Rookie Autograph Card
We return to the Panini brand with one of their most popular set for basketball collectors – Panini Prizm.
This one consists of his rookie autograph cards in a couple of image variations plus in a number of parallel versions.
BONUS: 2019-20 Panini Prizm Rookie Card
Since we first made this post, the Panini Prizm rookie card (particularly the Silver Prizms) hadn’t been released.
But now that it is, you can bet this will be one of the more popular rookie cards to collect.
