For the significance of this card, note this excerpt from Dan Hajducky's June 28, 2021 story in ESPN:

A PSA 10 Mia Hamm 1992 S.I. for Kids rookie card sold for $34,440 with Goldin Auctions over the weekend, nearly doubling the previous record for most expensive female sports card of all time.

The previous record belonged to an Alex Morgan 1-of-1 from the Immaculate Collection Soccer line that reportedly sold for $16,000, according to eBay. And a PSA 10 of Serena Williams' 2003 Netpro Tennis rookie raked in $14,000 a few months back.

While the past year and a half has seen stratospheric interest in the sports card industry and record-decimating sales for male players of past and present, the numbers haven't translated quite so frequently to cards featuring female athletes -- until now.

Starting in June 1989, S.I. for Kids offered tear-away card sheets of contemporary star athletes. Due to their tear-out nature, intact sheets are hard to come by and high-grade singles are even more so. Of the nine-card 1992 sheet, which also included Bobby Bonilla and Richard Petty, Hamm's rookie card is doubtlessly the most desirable.

_______________________________________

Presented here is this same special Mia Hamm card in a near perfect BGS MINT 9. As the interest in women's sports (USA soccer often leading the way) continues to explode, early cards of those athletes influencing that excitement and growth will only gain in popularity.

Could this Mia Hamm issue from S.I. back in 1992 be the women's sports card version of a '52 Mantle, '65 Namath or '86 Jordan?
