Gleyber Torres was born on 12/13/1996 in Caracas, Venezuela.
The Yankees were lucky enough to acquire Torres when the Cubs agreed to part with top prospect Gleyber Torres in exchange for Aroldis Chapman and his high-octane fastball.
Here are the top 3 Gleyber Torres Rookie Cards…
2018 Gleyber Torres Topps Chrome Update Refractor #HMT9
Nice, auto Torres Rookie Card here.
Numbered #HMT9 and the back reads “Gleyber didn’t make the 2018 opening day roster but by mid-July, he was batting cleanup in what is arguably the sports most ruthless lineup…”
We would 100% buy this at a reasonable price in an eBay auction.
2018 Gleyber Torres Topps Chrome #31
Another Topps Torres Rookie Card but not worth as much as the Refractor.
The 2018 Topps Chrome Gleyber RC is numbered #31 and will cost around $35 (PSA 10 grade).
We would pass on this card.
2018 Gleyber Torres Topps Heritage Action #603
This Torres rookie card can come in a variety of variations.
There are six different types of 2018 Topps Heritage High Number (according to Beckett) variation short prints: Action Image, Error, Team Color Swap, Throwback Uniform, Nickname, and Trade.
Out of the six, we like the Error and Tea Color Swap the best.
We like the idea of adding all of the six cards to our investment portfolio as PSA grade 10.

We don’t love Torres but we feel a couple of his rookie cards would be a smart buy (just don’t go crazy).
His home run power will never be a question, we just hope he can keep his average above .270 (ideally .280 or higher).
