An In Depth Look at The Walking Dead Cast Signed Sheriff’s Hat

You wanted it, you got it!!  Whether it be the San Diego Comic Con or The Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta, I’m always asked questions like, “Where did you get that?”, “Did you get all those signed here?”, etc…Well hopefully this will answer everyone’s questions once they see this post.  I’m going to bring you an in depth look at what I have been working on for almost a year now.

First things first.  The hat itself is a Chocolate Brown Bailey’s Cowboy Hat purchased online at somewhere between $50-$60 dollars.  For those of you that don’t know the actual hat used on the show is a Stetson brand cowboy hat.  This would run around $200 dollars and at the time it was way past my budget for the build.  On a side note, the actual hat that I used is backwards.  To give it more of an authentic replica look, I had to turn it around and place the badge on the back to make it look like the front.  Only one person out there had noticed and that was actor Lew Temple.

Secondly, the gold hat cord was purchased through for $9.99.  The version I got was the 29″ version and probably should have gone with the 31″ version as in the show it hangs off the front of the hat just a tiny bit.

Lastly, the badge on the hat was actually not the original badge I had used.  After searching over and over online and on eBay, the first purchase I made was a more bigger badge with less detail.  This badge also had a flat shape as the one currently on the hat has a curve to it.  Unfortunately I am unable to find any reference pictures of the first badge, but I can tell you that you pay for what you get, as I paid around $40 dollars for the first one and then around $75 dollars for the current one.

Ok, enough talk right?? Let’s get to the good stuff.  I will try to go into as much detail as I can with each and every autograph on here.  There is a total of 32 autographs on this hat so stick around and enjoy!!!
