One, Betts is a star player, and currently one of the best hitters in the American League. He's a player worth collecting. As I've taken a long break from card collecting, this is actually my first Betts card.
Secondly, this is such a tiny investment. While I typically only buy rookie cards and numbered cards, there are short prints, inserts, and even base cards that I'll pick up if the price is right. I do that on Listia regularly, but if it's a dollar or less, and it's a card that has been selling on eBay, I'm willing to take a stab.
Lastly, this is a nice looking card. Aesthetics do matter after all. While awards cards may not have quite the appeal that they did years ago, I always like cards that serve as a reminder of key moments in a player's career. Betts rookie cards are definitely among my top targets, but to me, this is a must have Mookie Betts card.
