Signed Serena Williams rookie card sold for record price at auction
An autographed Serena Williams rookie card printed in 2003 has become the most expensive women's sports card after selling for $44,280 at an auction last weekend, New Jersey-based Goldin Auctions said.
According to ESPN, the Williams card was bought by alternative-asset trading platform Alt on behalf of a private client.
"People are accepting women's trading cards as collectables," Goldin Auctions founder Ken Goldin told ESPN.
The previous record was $34,440 for a rookie card of former US football player Mia Hamm sold in June.
