Iowa sharpshooter Caitlin Clark is rewriting the college basketball record books and now her trading card is doing the same on the auction block, shattering the previous top price for a women’s basketball card.

The current bid for the reigning national player of the year’s one-of-one rookie card on Monday was $19,000, surpassing the previous record of $11,500 for a Diana Taurasi rookie card that was sold last year, auction house PWCC said.

A point guard known for her late-game heroics and unlimited shooting range, Clark is shown dribbling the ball up the court on the front with a list of accomplishments on the back. Bidding on the autographed Bowman superfactor card closes on Thursday.

She led the Hawkeyes to the final last year and is expected to become the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer by the end of the season, where she is averaging a gaudy 31.7 points per game.

Clark, who turned 22-years-old on Monday, is the presumptive first overall pick in the upcoming 2024 WNBA draft.
