Key Gregory Polanco Prospect Cards

The following are highlights of some of the top Gregory Polanco cards released prior to his MLB debut. All are either inserts or from sets consisting of prospects. As a result, none are rookie cards.

2012 Bowman Chrome Prospects Gregory Polanco #BCP182

2012 Bowman Chrome Baseball is home to the first card featuring the outfielder in a MLB uniform. Because his autograph didn't come until a year later, this one should hold a little added interest. The base version remains affordable, although there are plenty of Refractor versions to chase.

2012 Topps Heritage Minor League Gregory Polanco #53

Clearly a minor league card, the appeal of this card is its price. Although it's one of the first widely available Gregory Polanco cards, it's cheap. It also has a retro vibe that a lot of his early cards lack.

2013 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs Gregory Polanco #BCP-GP

Although this isn't Gregory Polanco's rookie card, it's likely going to be his top card in a lot of ways. His first autograph in Pirates gear, it comes with the Bowman Chrome name, a brand that has become a go-to for prospectors. So while the 2013 Bowman Chrome Gregory Polanco autograph is an insert, it's traded a lot like a traditional rookie card. It can be found in 2013 Bowman Baseball boxes.

2013 Bowman Black Collection Autographs Gregory Polanco #BBC-GP #/25

If you're looking for a Gregory Polanco autograph that's on the rare side but not strictly a parallel, there's the 2013 Bowman Black Collection insert. Signed in silver, the card has a print run of 25 copies. It's part of a multi-year, cross-brand autograph program. Like his Bowman Chrome Autograph, this card can be found in 2013 Bowman Baseball.

2013 Bowman Inception Prospect Autographs Gregory Polanco #PA-GP

2013 Bowman Inception marked the brand's debut in baseball. Its distinct designs and on-card autographs made the release a hit. It's also a bargain compared to his Bowman Chrome card, selling at less than half the price.

2013 Bowman Sterling Prospect Autographs Gregory Polanco #BSAP-GP

The 2013 Bowman Sterling Gregory Polanco sits between Chrome and Inception as far as values go. Like the other two, it has an on-card autograph and several parallel versions. Going the single-card route is probably the best option for this one as box prices are so high.

2013 Leaf Metal Draft Gregory Polanco Autograph #BAGP1

The 2013 Leaf Metal Draft Gregory Polanco autograph is short print. Although not numbered, it has a confirmed print run of 40 copies. It's a solid alternative that combines a strong chromium design with rarity. The only thing it's lacking is logos, which some likely won't mind but it probably won't reach a lot of iconic notoriety over the long-term.

2013 Leaf Trinity Inscriptions Gregory Polanco #DTI-GP1 #/30

2013 Leaf Trinity Baseball has three distinct designs, all of which make for high-end autographs. The first is the Inscriptions card. Numbered to 30, it comes with a hand-written note along with the standard signature. The card also has a handful of parallels.

2013 Leaf Trinity Patch Autographs Gregory Polanco #DTP-GP1

This Patch Autograph card has a lot of eye appeal. The patch swatch might not be game-used, but it does make for an attractive card. It isn't serial numbered, but Lead has confirmed the base version has a print run of 60.

2013 Leaf Trinity Pure Autographs Gregory Polanco #GP1 #/60

2013 Leaf Trinity Pure Autographs are printed on on a plexiglass-style stock that pictures cannot give justice to. The layered appearance is unique (in a good way).

2013 Onxy Platinum Prospects Threads Gregory Polanco #/30

Gregory Polanco's first game-used card doesn't come from a major manufacturer. Onyx included a limited number of memorabilia cards in 2013 Platinum Prospects, many of which can be found with tag pieces.

2013 Panini Elite Extra Edition Gregory Polanco #183 Autograph #/667

This is another affordable alternative when it comes to early Gregory Polanco autograph cards. It might not have MLB's blessings, but the Elite Extra Edition brand has been around for a long time. Signed on-card, it's also serial numbered, something that none of the non-parallel Bowman autographs has.
