I came across an interesting autograph signature when I was checking out some autograph cards, I do not own any of these card. Jimmi Simpson is one of those actors where you recognize his face and he is in a number of top shows but he isn’t an A-List actor.
Just a couple of shows and movies he has under his IMDB belt; 24, My Name Is Earl, Late Show With David Letterman, Party Down, Date Night, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, It’s Always Sunny, House of Cards and HBO’s latest hit Westworld. This guy absolutely knows when to sign a contract, he may not have the biggest parts but he is successful in what he does.
So back to his autograph… He appeared in four episodes of the indie-show Psych as the character Mary Lightly which earned him an autograph card in the 2015 Cryptozoic Psych Season 5-8 release along other guest stars like Mekhi Phifer, Malcolm McDowell, Anthony Anderson and Val Kilmer. Now Cryptozoic may be not was well known with sports only collectors but they do some wonderful releases and this set was no different and the autograph cards are pretty obvious where to sign but Simpson marches to his own drum and signed over his face.
If I were a Jimmi Simpsons fan I would be disappointed with these cards. I have seen Wil Wheaton and Mark Hammill deface their autograph cards by adding little drawings or adding horns on their heads but signing in a way that covers the face would suck. From what I have seen all of his Psych cards are signed in a similar way.
