October 25, 2021

A Serena Williams autographed rookie card from 2003 was sold at New Jersey-based Goldin Auctions on Sunday for $44,280. The price was a record for any women’s sports card, beating the record sale previously held by a 1992 S.I. for Kids Mia Hamm rookie card, which sold in late June with Goldin Auctions for $34,440. The Williams card was bought by Alt, an alternative-asset trading platform, on behalf of a private client. ESPN
