Victor Robles (05/19/97) is an outfielder who currently plays for the Washington Nationals. After a few years in the minor leagues, he made his MLB debut in 2017. Robles has the ability to become a five-tool player, so he’s definitely one to keep an eye on in 2020 and beyond.

Here’s everything you need to know about his rookie cards, with three top options, and an investment outlook looking at the next few years.

Top 3 Victor Robles Rookie Cards

We’ve combed through recent auction data to bring you a list with three of the top Victor Robles rookie cards on the market. His prospect cards came in 2015 via Elite and Panini, while his first Bowman Chrome was released a year later.

 

2018 Victor Robles Topps Chrome RC #175 (buy on eBay)

Victor Robles Topps Chrome rookie card

The base 2018 Topps Chrome is a highly popular option, with a strong landscape design and a ridiculous amount of Refractor options to choose from. 

There’s an action shot featuring Robles in the middle of a typically powerful strike, and it’s relatively affordable, even for a PSA 10 copy of one of the rarer versions. The player is featured in his Nationals uniform, and there’s an RC logo in the top left corner.

The set also has a couple of photo variations, such as an image where Robles is wearing a white jersey.

Parallels: Refractors, Negative Refractors, Pink Refractors, Prism Refractors, Sepia Refractors, Xfactors, Purple Refractors (/299), Blue Refractors (/150), Green Refractors (/99), Green Wave Refractors (/99), Blue Wave Refractors (/75), Gold Refractors (/50), Gold Wave Refractors (/50), Orange Refractors (/25), Red Refractors (/5), Red Wave 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)

2016 Victor Robles Bowman Chrome Rookie Card #CPA-VR (buy on eBay)

Victor Robles Bowman Chrome rookie card

Considered to be a prospect card as it was released in 2016, that hasn’t stopped this Bowman Chrome from becoming one of his more popular options. The combination of a 1st Bowman logo and an on-card auto makes it an interesting prospect.

(However, Robles did make a habit of signing many of the cards at an angle, so it spreads over to the upper side.)

Parallels: Green Shimmer Refractor, Orange Shimmer Refractor, Refractor (/499), Purple Refractor (/250), Blue Refractor (/150), Green Refractor (/99), Gold Refractor (/50), Orange Refractor (/25), Light Blue Refractor (/3), Red Refractor (/5), SuperFractor 1/1, Printing Plates 1/1 

 

2018 Victor Robles Topps Series 1 RC #166 (buy on eBay)

Victor Robles Topps rookie card

The Topps Series 1 is the most affordable option on our list, with a base version that is similar to the first card on the list in most respects. With that in mind, there’s a photo variation that we’d focus on instead, in which he’s wearing a shirt and smiling. 

It typically receives the most bids at auction, and offers something different compared to the others. 

Parallels: Purple, Rainbow Foil, Gold (/2018), Negative, Vintage Stock (/99), Independence Day (/76), Black (/67), Mother’s Day Pink (/50), Father’s Day Blue (/50), Memorial Day Camo (/25), Platinum (1/1), Printing Plates (1/1)

Investment Outlook

Robles was slightly overshadowed by the emergence of Juan Soto in 2019, while 2020 has been a difficult year for baseball on the whole. Regardless, he has the ability to become a true asset for Washington over the next few years, so he’s definitely one to look out for.

Even the rarest versions of his rookie cards are relatively affordable, so it’s hard to ignore them if you’re looking for a couple of good investment pieces to hold onto over the next year or so.

Investment Rating: STRONG BUY

  1. Victor Robles is over shadowed by Soto, in a similar way, that Ozzie Albies is to Ronald Acuna. Robles has fringe all-star potential, so it could be a good sneaky buy
