The rubber-stamped autographs are being replaced.

Cryptozoic Entertainment announced Sunday that it will be replacing autographed cards of Katie Cassidy from its 2014 Supernatural Seasons 1-3 set that appear to have been “signed” with a rubber stamp. It’s a card that had been regularly selling for around $100 — the second-most-popular card in the 20-card set based on its value, though a few cards are too rare to price.

“We have had numerous discussions with Katie Cassidy’s agent, and we have determined that her autograph cards were mechanically produced with a stamp,” said a statement released by the company. “We are deeply sorry that we did not detect these stamped autographs ourselves and that we inserted them into our product. We are taking all the necessary steps to make sure that this type of problem does not happen again.”

Cassidy, 28, appeared on six episodes of the show in 2006 and 2007, and is perhaps best-known for her current role as Black Canary in Arrow. She’s the daughter of actor/musician David Cassidy of The Partridge Family.

The company already has sent Cassidy new cards that have been signed and will be sent to those who opt for a replacement. Cryptozoic said collectors holding one of the cards should send it to the following address along with their name, phone number, email address and mailing address:

Cryptozoic Entertainment
c/o SPN KC Exchange
25351 Commercentre Dr. Suite 250
Lake Forest, CA 92630

    Is there really enough that much demand to produce a trading card set for this TV show? I’ve never heard of it before and truthfully only clicked on the article because I was curious about who the actress was.

  2. Richard 23 December, 2014 at 20:09

    Yep, there is enough demand.
    Trust me, that company has passed on a number of shows or simply waited because they only
    want to deal with stuff that will sell out. They don’t want to be a casualty like Ink Works was.

    Trey – the show’s in its 10th season and has been one of that network’s top shows since the day it launched, so yeah, there’s demand.

    I agree with the earlier point.Supernatural has been crap since season 3.Funny how a B-lister who is known for none of her work tried to cheat Topps and her 15 fans and send out Fake autos shes paid to sign.SMH

    Some of these comments show how very sheltered people are. In TV and/or Sci-Fi world, Katie Cassidy has had roles on two of the more popular shows in CW history – Supernatural has been huge for more than a decade and now she’s got a rather large role on Arrow, which is huge by any standard. Add to that the fact that her dad was on the Partridge Family and you’ve got a pretty famous person. Stop living under rocks.

    It sounds like there was no representative present the 1st tme. Now it sounds like no representative this time either. Who is to say that the new one’s are even going to be signed by her.

    This is why I always look for Topps cards first when it comes to autos. Topps has a company representative witness every signing. No one else does that. Without a witness, there’s no telling who or what is making the autos.

    Looking at eBay past listings for this card, though, anyone who bought it was pretty dumb, or at least very ignorant. You can clearly see if you look at multiple photos of the same card that the auto is exactly the same every time – a sure sign of a stamped sig. But then again, whoever received the cards at the company should also have easily seen the same thing. Something this obvious should have never made it into packs.

    Did an ebay search of completed listings as of 01/22/15. There are only thirteen completed auctions for this product where a sale has been made in the past two months. I guess there are a lot of “sheltered” people out there that aren’t interested in this product.
