The best card of the best female college basketball player in the world is on the auction block. When it’s over, you might be able to add the final selling price to Caitlin Clark’s never-ending stack of records.
Thanks to NIL rules, Iowa’s all-world point guard/scoring machine appeared in a card set before her senior season had even started. Clark was one of the top attractions in 2022 Bowman U Basketball and the 1/1 SuperFractor autograph appears just set a new bar for a women’s basketball trading card.
With over a week left in the auction, the current bid is at $20,400, nearly double the previous record of $11,500 set by a Sabrina Ionescu 1/1.
The Clark card was pulled by Wasteland Gaming in Atlanta in August of last year. It was submitted to PSA for grading where it garnered a Gem Mint 10 with a 10 for the sticker autograph.
The card is on the block through PWCC Marketplace.
While that auction plays out, Clark’s 1/1 Prime Signatures SuperFractor is also up for auction. That one’s being offered on eBay and is set to end on Jan. 23.
Clark—if you’ve spent the last couple of years in a cave—is a must-see attraction, with anywhere in the gym range and a passing ability that drops jaws. All of Iowa’s home games are sold out and ticket sales soar when the Hawkeyes hit the road. She’s Pistol Pete with a pony tail.
“She doesn’t just play well; she plays with a pizzazz, a swagger, a cockiness, orneriness, but with a big smile, kind of like Larry Bird used to,” said Gus Johnson, who called the Iowa-Indiana game last week, when Clark added 30 points to her career total of nearly 3,300.
Her impact has gone beyond the court, pushing television viewership of women’s basketball to new heights. While she plays with a swagger, she’s humble and personable off the court but not too shy to promote the sport whenever possible.
“She’s unique in the excitement level,” Basketball Hall of Famer and ESPN analyst Rebecca Lobo told Field Level Media. “When she plays, she’s one of those players that you turn on and you’re like, ‘She’s going to do something, and I don’t want to miss it.’ And so, she’s helped grow the game in a huge way.”
