An In Depth Look at The Nerd Initiative’s “The Walking Dead” Cast Signed Sheriff’s Hat

Share Button


As an autograph collector I try to think of the most coolest or unique things to get signed.  Because your usual 8×10’s and photos can just be plain ass boring I decided to start a collection of AMC’s The Walking Dead cast autographs on my custom built King County Sheriff’s Hat.  I started with a Bailey’s Chocolate Hat along with some gold rope and a custom built replica King County Sheriff’s badge.  With that being said, 2 years, 3 different states, 9 events/venues, 2 Hobby Lobby Paint Markers, and 46 autographs, this project piece is finally done!!!  Thank you to all that have followed my journey into getting this piece finalized and thank you to the cast of AMC’s The Walking Dead for making this a prized piece to my collection!!!
