The Academy Awards are set for Sunday and the top films and actors will come home with Oscars, but you shouldn’t expect to be able to build a collection of the winners’ certified autograph cards.
Because barely any of this year’s top nominees have ever signed on for a certified (non-cut) autograph. And, in most instances, it’s been years since those few who have signed have sat down to do the honors.
Hollywood’s awards season is here with the nominees for the SAG and Golden Globes arriving this week and the inevitable chatter about who might get an Oscar nomination on Jan. 15 heating up online.
Good luck finding yourself Oscar cardboard, though, as cards showing Hollywood’s biggest honor aren’t all that common at all. In fact, they’re downright scarce even though countless Oscar winners themselves have appeared on cards. (At right is a 2005 Topps Chronicles card Buzz bets most of you have never seen.)
Because of that, we’re going with a different piece of awards cardboard above — you all remember that one and its 2011 Topps American Pie card, right? — as Buzz presents his picks for the top Oscars collectors need to know.
