Top Trevor Story Rookie Cards and Key Prospect Guide

An explosive rookie year with the Colorado Rockies made Trevor Story rookie cards a very popular option in 2016 but an injury ended his season prematurely. His career and cards have been up and down since then.

In addition to notching homers in his first four MLB games, including two on Opening Day 2016, Story's story took hold of the media and collectors everywhere. Of course, the pace slowed over time, but, man, what a start. He eventually tied the MLB rookie record with 10 home runs in April and was named the Rookie of the Month.

The earliest Trevor Story cards were issued in 2011 baseball products and those remain key options and represent the great majority of his prospect autographs.

He also has limited signed options in 2013 Bowman and 2015 Elite Extra Edition. It appears the EEE autograph stickers were all applied upside down.

2011 Bowman Chrome Draft Prospect Autographs Trevor Story #BCAP-TS

Without a doubt, this is the top Trevor Story pre-rookie card to chase and one of his most popular cards overall. This card is part of the Chrome Prospect Autographs insert in 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects. In addition to the main version, there are several Refractor parallels of increasing rarity. Non-autograph collectors or those on a budget can look to the unsigned version (#BDPP84) as another notable option.

2011 Bowman Sterling Prospect Autographs Trevor Story #BSP-TS

After Bowman Chrome, all the Trevor Story prospects are fighting for second place. 2011 Bowman Sterling Draft is a worthy option that will check in cheaper based on the sticker autograph. Similar to Bowman Chrome, Sterling also has a few different Refractor parallels and a base version (#24).

2011 Donruss Elite Extra Edition Prospects Trevor Story #P-49 Autograph #/464

Arguably the best of the non-Topps cards for Story, 2011 Donruss Elite Extra Edition includes an on-card signature and moderate print run. Despite not featuring the MLB logos, he is shown from his Irving High School days which is a definite plus over the regular airbrushed look.

2011 Limited Draft Hits Signatures Trevor Story #18 Autograph #/299

On the other hand, you have 2011 Limited. Even with a lower print run, the Draft Hits design is not ideal and too heavy on dark colors. Plus there is the awkward image of Story. Nevertheless, hard-signed is always a plus and 299 keeps things quite limited.

2011 Playoff Contenders Rookie Ticket Trevor Story #RT27 Autograph

The Contenders Football magic does not carry over to baseball, but the card does have a little personality to go along with an on-card autograph. Although not numbered, it was revealed that the print run sits between 300 and 399 total copies.

2011 Playoff Prime Cuts Prospect Signatures Trevor Story #TS Autograph #/299

Another Panini offering for Trevor Story, Prime Cuts might actually have the most appealing design of the non-Topps cards, but it is taken down slightly because of the sticker autograph. A print run of 299 keeps things interesting.
