Bill Paxton’s memorable career reflected on very little cardboard


Despite an acting career that included nearly 100 credits and memorable roles over a 40-year span, Bill Paxton‘s cardboard credits are few.

He’s got just eight certified autographs in two products.

The 61-year-old actor died this weekend after complications due to a surgery and that means many fans might be seeking a memento that they had meant to track down but hadn’t done yet.


While his credits include roles of varying sizes in Weird Science (Chet!), True Lies, Terminator, Tombstone, Apollo 13, Titanic, Commando, Twister, Frasier, Spy Kids 2, Million Dollar Arm and Training Day, his cards are from sets made for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Aliens. 

His first cards are in the 2015 Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. set from Rittenhouse Archives — one full-bleed auto and one case-incentive card — and then his only other cards are from the 2016 Upper Deck Alien Anthology release, which was also released via e-Pack and those cards — there are six — can most-easily be found via His ink can be found solo but also on cards with Lance Henriksen, Mark Rolston, Sigourney Weaver, Charles S. Dutton and Ron Perlman.

“A loving husband and father, Bill began his career in Hollywood working on films in the art department and went on to have an illustrious career spanning four decades as a beloved and prolific actor and filmmaker,” said a statement from his family. “Bill’s passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable.”
