Leaf Trading Cards has released a pair of never-before-seen 2012 Leaf Originals wrestling cards with autographs of former WWE star Joanie Laurer, aka Chyna, who died this week at age 46.
A total of 30 cards spread over two designs are presently being offered by the company via Buy It Now listings on eBay.
She was a bodybuilder, a bodyguard, a pioneering women’s wrestler dubbed “the ninth wonder of the world” who won men’s championships, a Playboy model and, ultimately, someone who battled demons for years after leaving the wrestling world.
She was Joanie Laurer, aka Chyna, and the former WWE star died Wednesday at age 46.
“I just heard the tragic news that @ChynaJoanLaurer has passed,” wrote WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon on Twitter. “She was truly a pioneer in our industry, and she will be missed. #RIPChyna.”
