Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s Coverage of Super Cards ’87

Growing up in the mid-late ’80s, one of my greatest joys would come when I would go to the grocery store with my Mom and be able to pick up a new wrestling magazine.  It never mattered to me which one I got as long as I got one.  If you know anything at all about the glory days of the Apter magazines, you know that the Cadillac of wrestling magazines was Pro Wrestling Illustrated.  One reason it was considered the best was because of its full-color coverage of various events.  One of the things I really looked forward to each year was their coverage of the spring super cards like Wrestlemania. 

Well, I recently picked up some old wrestling magazines from eBay, and one of them was the Pro Wrestling Illustrated with coverage of the super cards of 1987!  After salivating over the 19 pages of greatness multiple times, I thought I would share them with the world so others who used to enjoy this stuff could relive how great it was.  So what follows is all 19 pages of PWI’s coverage of Wrestlemania 3, Crockett Cup ’87, Parade of Champions ’87, and UWF Super Blast.  Enjoy!

  1. I remember that PWI well and I remember it being one of my favorites that I read over countless times. I had a subscription to PWI for many years and each issue was highly anticipated and read cover to cover many times. I had saved them all for many years (along with WWF Magazine), but at one point during a lapse in judgment, I thought what do I need to save those for anymore and let my parents get rid of them. Still regret that often. Thanks for sharing this issue and giving me some great memories.
