When I started the Obituaries thread, it was with the intention that posts would be about people who were connected to nonsports cards in some way, and that posts would link to cards of those who had passed on. It has evolved into a list of celebrities who have died, many of whom seem to have no particular connection to the hobby.

So here is a new thread, which hopefully will include only folks who appear on a card.

Merle Haggard died today.

That's sad to hear. I did used to enjoy watching Blake's 7, I even rewatched it from start to finish on DVD not so long ago.

And to keep Bill happy:

William Schallert just passed away, at the age of 93. His first IMDB credit was 1947 and his last was 2014 -- that's 67 years! (and not counting his theater work from even earlier). He appeared on numerous trading cards: Star Trek (TOS and DS9), Twilight Zone, Six Million Dollar Man.

He was one of those actors that just popped up everywhere, once you learned to recognize him.

Robin Hardy, author and director of the original 1973 version of the film 'The Wicker Man' passed away on July 1st. To the best of my knowledge, he has never appeared on a non-sport trading card or had an autograph in a set. However, he has a place in this thread as his best known work resulted in a complete card set being released based entirely on his film 'The Wicker Man'.

I'm awfully sad to post this one.

Jack Davis has just passed away. He was one of the best artists working for Topps during the 1960s (I'd say the best, YMMV). He worked at EC comics during the 1950s, including on Mad Magazine from when it was a comic book. He was a great commercial artist -- you can spot his line work on movie posters (original Bad News Bears, for example), record album covers, magazine covers (dozens of TV Guide issues), magazine ads, etc. I met him once at a comic book convention in Atlanta in the 1970s and he was a perfect gentleman as well (and did a wonderful sketch for me).

Sad news indeed to lose an all-time great.
His influence is simply incalculable.
