Williams actually made her professional tennis debut in 1995, but 2003 was the first year that a set of NetPro tennis cards had been released in almost a decade.

The previous record for a women’s trading card was $117,000, set this past January for a July 1999 SI For Kids Serena Williams rookie card. Another card of hers from that same set sold for over $91,000 on eBay in March. Prior to that, the record was set when an August 1992 SI For Kids Mia Hamm card sold for $34,440 in 2021.
