Default Women!!

For amusement I've been buying some RCs of the best female athletes. Here's what I have in basketball and tennis so far (no hockey!!) and a few other sports as well.

And finally, a surreal looking Finnish Sportscaster of perhaps the greatest female swimmer ever Tracy Caulkins, and a more normal looking Sportscaster of a woman whose feats are almost incomprehensible.

No but a Mia rookie is on my list. I had what I thought was a nice sheet to tear her card from but it had a wrinkle.

A few more examples. I don't really know enough about over/under valued but my budget doesn't exactly break the bank and I think some of these are a fun, affordable option to the all-timers in the big 4.

Picked up this one from Spain. Pretty sure it's her first card.

Fitting song for this thread.

S.I. for Kids cards are essential if you are weird enough to want to collect RCs in this space.

Naama Shafir is arguably the greatest orthodox Jewish women's basketball player ever. She is the first orthodox woman to get a full basketball scholarship to a division I program. Here is a signed pocket schedule with a note from her.

Ok this thread is awesome. I can’t believe nobody has a Manon Rheaume yet. I personally do not have one to show off.

However, my wife won two NCAA tennis championships, and I made her sign her tennis racket she used in the final a few years ago because there might be a crazy person like all of us in 100 years that wants it. Haha.

You all are the best.

I like this thread. Unfortunately I am without scanner presently.

But I realize I have a pretty significant ladies collection going back to the 1920s.

Gymnastics, hockey, track, skating, swimmers, basketball, golfers, tennis and a full set of autographed 1994 women's soccer team (Akers, Hamm, Lilly, Jennings, Hamilton and Foudy, all Hall of Famers )

I've got a ton of Helen Wills cards from the 1920s-1930s, mostly from Germany, Italy, France, England. I spent a long time hunting down boxing cards and many were a part of multisport sets. She was, apparently, quite the tennis player because she appeared in many of the sets.
