Tom Glavine Bio-
He was a great high school athlete and academic achiever, which led to him graduating with honors and in 1993, being elected to the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame. In 2009, he was drafted by pro hockey and baseball, choosing to pitch for the Atlanta Braves. After three years in the Minors, he made his professional debut and from that time to 1990, ended with a 33-43 record. Although not extremely good, with a few pitching adjustments, his 1991 performance closed with a 20-game win and 2.55 ERA. He also received his first Cy Young Award and took the team to the NL pennant for a trip to the 1991 World Series although the Braves lost. He then went to the New York Mets in 2003 but initially performed poorly.
However, in 2004, his pitching had improved and after signing a new one-year contract, he achieved his 300 career wins. He was offered another season but returned to the Atlanta Braves only to end up on the disabled list. He came back three months later and played well but shortly experienced a shoulder injury. While he and the Braves reached a new contract agreement, they released him, leading to his permanent retirement in 2010. Although not one of the greatest MLB players, the small amount of money it costs to purchase a Tom Glavine rookie card online through sites such as eBay, his card makes a good addition.
