Card of the Day: Bryson DeChambeau 2021 Upper Deck Artifacts Golf Ball Marker Relics

Getting The Best Autograph

Photobucket 

Its 2:00 p.m. and your standing in line at your favorite card show waiting to get an autograph.  Your fingers are tired from ripping wax, and your stomach is full with what you hope was a lukewarm hot dog you ate for lunch.  The last decision that you have to make for the day is what do you want the athlete to sign your item with.  What an athlete signs your item with can really affect the way the signature turns out.  Here is a list of common items that collectors get autographed and what type of writing instrument works best for that item.

  •  Baseball = Ballpoint pen
  • Football = Sharpie Marker
  • Basketball = Sharpie Marker
  • Hockey Puck = Sharpie Marker
  • Golf Ball = Sharpie Marker
  • Photograph = Sharpie Marker
  • Baseball Bat = Sharpie Marker
  • Sports Card = Sharpie Marker
  • Hat = Sharpie Marker
  • Jersey/Pants = Sharpie Marker
  • Helmets = Sharpie Marker
  • Index Cards = Ballpoint pen or Sharpie Marker
  • Pennants = Sharpie Marker
  • Shoes = Sharpie Marker
  • Poster = Sharpie Marker
  • Tickets = Sharpie Marker
  • Bobblehead = Sharpie Marker
  • Glove = Sharpie Marker

I guess you can see why Sharpie has a display at the National Sports Collectors Convention every year.
