Cover #100 for Trish Stratus
|By Jon Waldman / @jonwaldman|
TrishStratus.com is pleased to share the news that Trish Stratus has booked her 100th cover. Before the end of the month, we will see the WWE Hall of Famer grace the cover of Beckett Sports Card Monthly.
The opportunity is unique for Trish, who will be just the third woman to be on the cover of the magazine (the others being Lindsay Vonn and Danica Patrick). This is also the first time in the history of the magazine that a wrestler has appeared on its face..
"I'm so excited to finally hit cover 100!" Trish said. "And, to be the first from my industry to be on the cover of such a respected and well-known magazine in the sporting world is such an honor. I can't thank the people at Beckett enough for this opportunity."

The cover appearance comes on the heels of a whirlwind of activity for Trish and Beckett. Recently, Trish spoke with Beckett editor Chris Olds for an interview that will appear in the magazine. Portions of that conversation were published on Beckett's website in the "Collect Call" section.
"Ever since the interview, I've been getting comments in my office about how everyone was a fan of Trish and WWE so there was a lot of support for putting her on the cover," Olds told TrishStratus.com. "Add in the collectability of a milestone cover for Trish's career and it became the perfect fit."
To commemorate the 100th cover, Trish will be signing copies of the magazine at the 48th Sportscard and Memorabilia Fall Expo in Toronto on Friday, November 7 between 6-8pm. Fans in attendance will also receive one of the eight Queen of WrestleMania cards at the signing, courtesy of Topps.
