I don't know...something tells me it was a tennis player though. I do know who has signed the richest endorsement though, she's a tennis player also. :-D

Do commerical endorsements count? Mary Lou Retton was the first woman athlete depicted on the front of a Wheaties box. Babe Zaharias was apparently the first female athlete depicted on the Wheaties box in some capacity.

Wheaties has been around for a while...

The first person to pop into my mind was Billie Jean King. Maybe a figure skater, like Sonja Henie, who was both a figure skater and a movie star in the 20s and 30s - but I don't know if she did actual factual product endorsements.

Yeah Billie Jean King was my first thought too, Mary Lou Retton also came to mind but a female had to be endorsed before her. If Babe Zaharias received money for being on the Wheaties box, you might be getting close to your answer being that she was in her prime in the early 30's.

Female endorsed athlete? Hercules was endorsed by a few of the ladies. Is that what you are going for?
