People Magazine Special Edition: Alex Trebek
« on: November 23, 2021, 11:57:00 AM »
Just spotted at a local grocery store, People Magazine recently released a special edition issue paying tribute to Alex Trebek. 

As it is somewhat a "collectable", it is available for the low low Sale of the Century price of just $15 (!?!?).  Looks a little over twice the size of an average weekly issue of People.

I noticed that on the stands last week, but isn't it the same tribute from last year or earlier this year? I bought a copy in either late 2020 or early 2021.
"Eleanor Roosevelt? She's on Card Sharks, isn't she?"

Now celebrating his 20th season on GSF!

First time I've seen it, and my job takes me to a lot of retail stores.  Plus, I don't recall anyone mentioning it before.

Then again, its been just over a year since his passing, so they may have released it on the 1 year anniversary.

No worries. I figured some stores never took it off the shelves or maybe brought them back for the one-year anniversary of Alex's death.

It is indeed a reprinting. You have to look for it on the cover but it will say as much.
