Lewis Hamilton Formula 1 Card Sets A New Record

F1 racing has been massively growing in popularity, particularly within the US. Last season, F1 racing experienced its highest viewership rating ever with an average audience of 949,000 viewers per race. This has directly led to an increased interest in F1 trading cards, which have seen consistent increases in value.

Recently at a Goldin auction, a Lewis Hamilton F1 trading card has became the most expensive F1 card to date. The final auction sale price for this 2020 Topps Chrome Lewis Hamilton Red Refractor Auto was $900,000, an all-time record for F1 cards.

Lewis Hamilton has been the most dominant driver in Formula One over the last few years, with Hamilton winning seven World Drivers' Championship titles. Until someone can break Hamilton's dominance in the sport, his cards will likely continue to be the highest valued of any Formula One driver.
