Galvan Rey joined Colombian club Once Caldas in 1994, and proceeded to become one of the most dangerous forwards in Colombia. He scored 171 goals in his time with Once Caldas, 160 in the Colombian league, and another 11 in 15 Copa Libertadores matches. In 2003, Galvan Rey helped Once Caldas win the Colombian championship, their first in 53 years; additionally, he led the team to Copas Libertadores qualification in 1999, 2002, and 2004.
Before the 2004 MLS season, Once Caldas sold Galvan Rey to the MetroStars of Major League Soccer for a transfer fee in the range of half a million dollars. Although he played in 20 games, starting 10, Galvan Rey finished the year with only two goals and one assist. Galvan Rey's previous club, Once Caldas, went on to win the Copa Libertadores in his absence.
