Tyler Herro became Miami’s hero in Game 4 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. The 20-year-old from Wisconsin, who spent just one year at Kentucky, scored 37 points in a win over the Boston Celtics, including 14-of-21 shooting from the field with five three pointers. It was not only a Heat rookie record but Herro became the youngest player to score 37 in a playoff game since Magic Johnson.
He became the first rookie in NBA postseason history to score at least 10 points in their first 12 playoff games as a reserve since the NBA began tracking starts in 1970-71.
During his rookie season, he became the youngest player (19 years, 276 days) in franchise history to start a game after starting on opening night and finished as a member of the NBA’s All-Rookie Second Team.
“Before Kentucky, before the NBA, I grew up with the ball in my hands, making plays and making tough shots,” he says.
Herro’s fearless nature, his all-around game and his youth are all good reasons to look at his rookie cards as a potential long term stash. Those who bought in early are already being rewarded.
While his lower-end base cards from products like Hoops, Donruss, Certified, Chronicles and other products can be had for less than $10, autographed and low serial-numbered parallels from higher-end products as well as his high-grade Prizm rookie cards will cost more but could offer a larger payoff if Herro develops into an All-Star type talent.
