Serena Williams card fetches top dollar
27 October, 2021, 11:25 am
An autographed Serena Williams rookie card printed in 2003 has become the most expensive women’s sports card after fetching $62,000 at auction.
The previous record was $48,000 for a rookie card of former U.S. soccer player Mia Hamm sold in June.
ESPN reported the Williams card was bought by alternative-asset trading platform Alt on behalf of a private client.
The 40-year-old Williams, who is still hunting a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title, has not competed since limping out of her first-round match at Wimbledon in August.
