Happy holidays! Welcome to the November WNBA cards PSA POP count update!
PSA output of graded WNBA cards came close to the all times highs of August this past month.
In total, there were over 1,000 WNBA cards graded by PSA in November 2021, making it the second highest month this year.
There are now over 15,000 WNBA cards in PSA slabs.
The March Wave is Here
The most interesting observation from the POP count data this month is that output of WNBA cards almost doubled.
Given the large numbers graded in August, it makes sense these were probably cards sent in from those who initial opened product upon release.
This November increases seems to be tied to the huge March submissions, which makes sense given PSA recently began opening lower tiers, signaling they are growing closer to low backlog.
With over 3,000 cards now graded, the 2020 Panini Prizm WNBA set has a good chance of overtaking the inaugural set in December.

Satou Sabally Moves Into the Top 10
It was only a matter of time, I suppose, given Sabally was named to the All Star game in just her second year that her PSA POP count would rise.
The Jordan brand athlete has grown in popularity with collectors and fans thanks to her ability to do everything well. That resulted in her PSA POP count doubling in November, the largest increase of any card on the top 35 list.
It’ll be a long time before she catches her classmate, and former teammate Sabrina Ionescu. Once again Sabrina saw her base rookie POP count soar to new heights, increasing by another 21% since October.
