Would you fish out over $600 for a signed Alex Trebek Jeopardy figurine? If so, we have something for your Christmas list.
Alex Trebek was more than just an icon. He was a father, husband, TV personality, and Jeopardy! legend. When the world lost him in late 2020, his lasting effect was felt by everyone regardless if you knew him or not.
In November, Trebek, unfortunately, lost an 18 month battle with stage four pancreatic cancer. Despite his sickness, he appeared on the popular game show until the end.
If you are like us and still mourn the legendary Alex Trebek, we may have something to make him feel a little closer.
The website Hollywood Memorabilia currently is selling two signed figurines of the 36-year Jeopardy host. Only two, so you better get them while they are hot. The only catch is that they cost $661.99 a pop, so a pretty penny.
But how can you really put a price tag on Alex Trebek gear? It’s priceless.
While the dolls aren’t exact look-alikes to the beloved host, the small Jeopardy card it holds may give away his identity.
The doll is called the Alex Trebek Signed Autographed Jeopardy! Funko Pop. Maybe the large black-eyed doll isn’t your thing. We get it. We’ve seen Chucky. Don’t worry though, the website had plenty of different Alex Trebek options, including other Jeopardy! stars.
The creator of Jeopardy!, Merv Griffin, has a trading card with his signature on it for $50. There is a signed Alex Trebek index card worth $140.
But the most memorabilia comes from Jeopardy! royalty Ken Jennings. Whether you want a trading card with his signature or a photo of Jennings in action, they’ve got it. His gear ranged anywhere from $32 to $126.99.
