Soccer legend Mia Hamm is making history yet again … her rookie card just set a record for the most expensive female sports card ever — smashing the previous record!!
The 1992 Sports Illustrated for Kids rookie card — graded a PERFECT 10 by PSA — hit the auction block at Goldin Auctions a few weeks back … and it’s a thing of beauty.
Over the weekend, the card sold for $34,440!!!
The huge sales price makes this card the most expensive female card ever … more than doubling the previous record — a $16k Alex Morgan card.
It’s not a surprise that Hamm’s card made history … she’s a soccer icon.
Mia played forward from 1987 to 2004, winning 2 Olympic gold medals with the USA women’s soccer team and is a 2-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champion.
She was also the first female inducted into the World Football Hall of Fame (2013) and even has a building named after her at Nike headquarters.
Hamm also held the record for most international goals (158) by a woman — or man!
Just add it to the (very) long list of Hamm’s accomplishments!!
