When it comes to Johnny Depp, I’ve never quite understood the fascination. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a brilliant actor but at this point in his career seems a bit overrated. Perhaps what really turned me off was the absolutely pathetic retelling of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but I suppose Tim Burton deserves most of the criticism there.
I never had any knowledge of a certified autograph of Depp in trading card form. Simply put, when it comes to the really big stars, companies seem to have a hard time getting them to sign on the dotted line or in the industry’s case, the sticker. To this day, I believe the Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider autograph to be the all-time greatest auto in non-sports trading cards.
Charlie & The Chocolate Factory trading cards were produced in 2005 by Artbox Entertainment. I could not find much information on the set but I was able to find many movie prop relics, foil parallels, and certified autographs through eBay. Typical Depp autographs on eBay have sold anywhere from $60 dollars to as much as $120.
The very rare Depp autograph from the set is nearing $200 dollars with 3 days left.
