Notably, Clark’s autographed 2022 Topps Bowman University Superfactor basketball card was sold for a value of over $78,000 at the PWCC Marketplace auction. Breaking records left, right, and center on court, however, this is so far the best one.

This record was previously held by the New York Liberty’s Sabrina Ionescu, whose card was sold for a value of $11,500. Interestingly, the onset of this record being broken could be seen last week itself when it was already bidding for a price of $21,600.

While this does look good on her resume, the record is limited only to basketball. As a matter of fact, the all-time record of the most expensive women’s athlete card sold is still being held by the tennis legend and highly accoladed Serena Williams, whose card was sold in May 2022 for a value of $266,400.

Bringing the conversation back to Ohanian’s shoutout for Clark, this shows the humility and huge respect that the players have for one another with their continuing love for sports. Moreover, this is not the first time that Ohanian has been a fan of her stellar performances.
