Over the years, we have offered numerous lots of JDM 2 cards, including complete set lots, group lots and single card lots. Amazingly, this is only the second time that we have ever had the pleasure to offer the JDM 2 card of Kaoru Betto as a single card lot!

Kaoru Betto, known as the "Gentleman of Baseball", was a lifetime .302 hitter who won the Central League MVP award in 1950 as a member of the Mainichi Orions. However, as seen here in this 1949 issue, he is shown as a member of the Hanshin Tigers, his team in 1948-49.  This example is in top condition, with the eye and ear holes still intact and unpunched.
