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.
Pretty good company–and another reason why Tyler Herro rookie cards have been “heating up.”
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.
