Trish Stratus is, without a doubt, the most accomplished female in modern professional wrestling history. The seven-time WWE Women's Champion was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013. Even in retirement, Trish Stratus cards and memorabilia continue to be strong sellers amongst wrestling collectors.
Proving that she was more than just a sex symbol for the company, Straus worked hard to develop the wrestling prowess necessary to compete. The sultry and voluptuous Stratus was equally adept at playing the role of heel (wrestling villain) or the girl next door.
Stratus is also an award-winning fitness model and has parlayed her career into acting roles as well. Health and fitness remain her core ideals. She owns a successful yoga studio in Canada.
When it comes to collectibles, there is no shortage Trish Stratus cards, autographs, figures, posters, magazines and other memorabilia. Her first pack-inserted cards appeared in 2001 from both Artbox and Fleer. Prior to that, Comic Images produced a promo card for a proposed Divas set. However, the set never came to be as Fleer took over the license. While the promo card was never formally released, a very small number are believed to have survived. Stratus' popularity came the height of the event-used memorabilia period in the hobby. She has several desirable wardrobe cards in addition to the numerous autographs and insert cards on the market.
