Yo! Thanks for tuning into the January 2023 WNBA cards PSA POP count update. We’re coming to you a bit later than usual, but unfortunately an ultra busy schedule to start the new year has me behind.
PSA pushed out a high volume of WNBA cards in new plastic slabs in January. Over 1,300 new PSA slabs hit the road making January 2023 the highest output month since January of 2022.
Nothing like starting the year off strong.
There are now over 26,000 WNBA cards in PSA slabs. At the end of January 2022 there were a little over 18,000. This is over a 30% percent increase year over year.
Let’s take a look at the movers and shakers in the POP counts!
Ultra modern dominates volume, while Rittenhouse era sets explode
Ultra modern sets continued to dominate the absolute volumes, but many of the Rittenhouse era sets saw huge percentage increases in over population.
WNBA card sets from 2006, 2008, 2012, 2014, and 2015 all saw over a 25% increase in their population.
There was not much shuffling of the top 10 card sets, although the majority of the list saw rises over the period. The only new comer was the 2022 Panini Prizm WNBA set which saw a 33% increase from last month.
|1||2020 Panini Prizm WNBA||9,533||1%|
|2||1997 Pinnacle Inside||4,507||3.3%|
|3||1999 Hoops WNBA||2,020||>1%|
|4||2000 Fleer Ultra WNBA||1,149||2%|
|5||2000 SkyBox Dominion WNBA||1,137||>1%|
|6||1999 Fleer Ultra WNBA||1,064||3%|
|7||2021 Panini Prizm WNBA||1,069||7%|
|8||2019 Panini Donruss WNBA||997||2%|
|9||2022 Panini Prizm WNBA||675||33%|
|10||1998 Pinnacle WNBA||363||0%|
No major movers in the Top 35 WNBA Rookie Cards
The majority of the PSA output in January came from ultra modern WNBA card sets, so the top 35 list didn’t see any major movers during the month.
The biggest gainers were the 2017 Rittenhouse WNBA Kelsey Plum, the 2012 Rittenhouse WNBA Nneka Ogwumike, 2000 Fleer Ultra Becky Hammon, and the 2004 Ultra WNBA Dian Taurasi.
