Mookie Betts Card Value Outlook: Temporary Hold:
When you lead the league in a number of batting statistics, and have a 50 + game On-Base streak, people will talk about you whether it’s in the majors or in AA. Mookie Betts is one of the games hottest prospects, he can hit for power & has speed which helps a guy get some hobby love.
But there is a snag, Mookie plays 2nd base on a team with a franchise 2nd baseman. No worries! He’s now getting time in the outfield and played short stop in high school. With Grady Sizemore & Johnny Gomes being Free Agents in the outfield for Boston, Betts could get a look once the rosters expand.
Betts is a 5 tool guy, and leads not only the Sea Dogs but the AA Eastern League in most batting categories.

Mookie Betts will most likely be over-produced for 2015 products. But with Bowman Chrome being his 1st licensed autograph – it should be his most desired card. Expect Betts to be in 2014 Bowman Inception & 2014 Bowman Sterling as well.
Here’s how Betts cards did on ebay completed sold listings from May 22nd to May 31st.
Collectors are being smart paying more for a card less rare, but less prone to showing damage and imperfections. In my opinion Betts will be the player to get the most time of any Red Sox player once the rosters expand in September.
I predict a 25% increase in base autographs in September.
So his base auto card would be worth $60 – $70 With many of them listed Buy-It-Now at $75.
