NCAA basketball superstar Caitlin Clark has set a new record, giving her the top top-selling jersey ever for a draft pick across all sports.

On Monday, the former Iowa Hawkeyes star went number one in overall picks in the 2024 WNBA draft to the Indiana Fever — and shortly afterward, her new jersey shot to the top of Fanatics — the official online retailer for the league, TMZ reported.

The sports site said it put up preorders for her No. 22 jersey and they not only sold out, but her WNBA jersey is now the top-selling draft pick in the company’s history across all sports, the outlet noted.

A jersey sales record is just one more accomplishment for Clark, the former NCAA star who became the top scorer in both women and men’s college basketball history, the outlet noted.

After being drafted, Clark spoke to “Good Morning America” about how she’s ready for the pros.

“I always believed in myself,” Clark said. “Also I worked really hard for it. I think that’s what I’m really proud of is like, I earned it. I deserve it. Nothing was ever given to me. More than anything just believe in myself.”

“That’s what I’m trying to take to the next level,” she added.

Speaking to ESPN after being drafted, Clark noted how excited she is for the new challenge of playing in the WNBA, as she gets ready to join last year’s No. 1 overall pick, Aliyah Boston.

“For myself, I can’t imagine a more perfect fit, a better place for me to start my professional career, an organization that really just believes in women’s basketball and wants to do everything the right way,” Clark said. “So I couldn’t be more excited to get there.”

“Going to an organization that has, in my eyes, one of the best post players in the entire world. My point guard eyes just light up at that,” she added of Boston. “My biggest job is I’m just feeding Aliyah the ball every single day. That’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to be in there and be like, go make a layup. She’s going to make my life easy.”

“I’m 22 years old, and I don’t have all the answers in the world,” Clark continued. “This is something new to me … That’s something I’m excited for. But having those type of people around me to lean on and ask questions, or when things get hard, to be there for me.”
