Aroldis Chapman

Position: Left-Handed Closer

Team: Cincinnati Reds

Series: Incognito

Overall: 99

This is a rare instance of the player the Cubs traded (Gleyber Torres) making the list as well as the player he was traded for (Aroldis Chapman). Nothing depicts an exceptionally well-run organization like trading a top prospect for a rental only to watch that rental return to the team you got him from a few months earlier. 

Without Aroldis Chapman, the Cubs may not have won the 2016 World Series, but as good as he was that year, this card is even better. He has 125 H/9, 125 K/9, and 125 Clutch. Essentially that means it doesn’t matter what situation you put him in, he’s going to strike the guy out to end the game. Especially if it’s a guy that hasn’t hit a homer all postseason… But seriously, he’s great.
