Gleyber Torres Rookie Card

The infielder was one of the top-ranked prospects in the game in 2016 and 2017. His progress stalled in 2016 when he required Tommy John surgery on his non-throwing arm. But that is in the past. Torres is one of the game’s rising stars playing in the game’s biggest market.

Here is a full Gleyber Torres Rookie Card checklist followed by some other highlights from before his MLB debut.

Key Gleyber Torres Pre-Rookie and Prospect Cards

This is by no means an exhaustive list of early Gleyber Torres cards. Rather, it highlights some of his most significant cards to come out before his base set Rookie Cards. And this doesn’t necessarily just take value into account. A comprehensive checklist of Gleyber Torres cards can be found in the Beckett Baseball Card Database.

2013 Elite Extra Edition Franchise Futures Signatures Gleyber Torres #71 /250

2013 Elite Extra Edition has the first Gleyber Torres autograph card. And it’s not even close. He didn’t have his next signed cards, including his first in a MLB uniform, until 2015. Building off the base set, the card has a foil design. It comes with several parallels, signed and unsigned. Only autograph versions are listed below.

As far as values go, some might look at it as a bit of a bargain when placed against his later Bowman Chrome autograph. It sells for a fraction of the cost despite coming out significantly sooner.

Parallels: Aspirations (/100), Status Blue (/50), Red Ink (/25), Status Emerald (/25), Green Ink (/10), Status Orange (/10), Status Gold (/5), Status Black (1/1)

2015 Bowman Black Collection Autographs Gleyber Torres #BBC-GT /25

The 2015 Bowman Black Collection Autographs Gleyber Torres offers something for rarity seekers outside of traditional parallels. The set also comes with a distinct look. Spread over multiple brands and sets, Bowman Black Collection cards get their name from their dark design. None have more than 25 copies, making scarcity real.

Torres’ card is part of 2015 Bowman Chrome Baseball.

2015 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs Gleyber Torres #BCAP-GT

The cornerstone of Gleyber Torres cards, his first Bowman Chrome autograph is in packs of 2015 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Like other Bowman Chrome autographs, these aren’t Rookie Cards in the traditional sense as they’re inserts. That said, it’s where many collectors look to and prognosticate over.

The Refractor rainbow is fairly extensive, adding another layer to the chase.

Parallels: Refractors (/499), Purple Refractors (/250), Blue Refractors (/150), Green Refractors (/99), Gold Refractors (/50), Orange Refractors (/25), Red Refractors (/5), Blue Twitter Refractors (/3), Printing Plates Black (1/1), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1), Superfractors (1/1)

2017 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs Gleyber Torres #CPA-GT

Over the past couple of years, Topps has taken to adding additional Bowman Chrome autographs for key prospects, especially those who change teams before their MLB debut. Such is the case with Torres, who went from the Cubs to the Yankees as part of a big trade involving Aroldis Chapman.

While this card might not command the same prices as his 2015 Bowman Chrome autograph, they’re still strong. The fact that he’s in a New York uniform certainly helps matters, too.

Parallels: 70th Anniversary Blue Refractors, Refractors (/499), Purple Refractors (/250), Blue Refractors (/150), Green Refractors (/99), Green Shimmer Refractors (/99), Gold Refractors (/50), Gold Shimmer Refractors (/50), Orange Refractors (/25), Orange Shimmer Refractors (/25), Red Refractors (/5), Red Shimmer Refractors (/5), Printing Plates Black (1/1), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1), Superfractors (1/1)

2018 Stadium Club Variations Gleyber Torres #213

Torres, along with Ronald Acuna Jr., was a surprise addition in 2018 Topps Stadium Club. Both rookies arrived as short print variations, which means they’re not traditional Rookie Cards. That said, this has quickly become a tough card to find and one that commands strong prices.

2018 Topps Variations Gleyber Torres #699

Similar to Stadium Club, this card is a variation — and a somewhat scarce one at that found in 2018 Topps Series 2 packs. While it’s not an RC in the traditional sense, it’s is Torres’ first flagship Topps card. While the similar Ronald Acuna Jr. card blew up first, this one has seen a significant rise.

2018 Topps Living Set Gleyber Torres #34

Available for a week on the Topps website starting on May 30, 2018, this is one of the early cards in the ongoing, multi-year set. And after selling 28,550 copies, it also has one of the highest print runs.

2018 Topps Now Gleyber Torres #112

The first Gleyber Torres card available after his Yankees debut came less than 24 hours after the fact as part of 2018 Topps Now. Exclusive to the Topps website, cards were sold for one day with the print run determined by the number ordered. Given the nature of the set and Topps Now program, it’s possible for Torres to have several cards on the checklist before the season finishes.

    Great player. Too bad the Cubs needed to trade him to temporarily get the closer necessary for their World Series win.

    • Ryan Cracknell 27 June, 2018 at 22:05

      @Brian – For the Beckett database, it is not because of the single-card distribution, similar to eTopps cards.

    I got a Torres #6 of 25 in a blaster box of big league a black and white is it one I should sell now.
