I normally only do baseball autographs but may end up going to a Kyrie Irving signing next month. I don't do cards and prefer to not do photos. Would it be worth it to purchase an official spaulding NBA ball? What are some good alternatives?

It is a public signing taking place at the Cleveland Auto Show, details can be found on the events web site. As far as I know it is free with paid admission to the auto show. Tristan Thompson will be appearing as well.

Instead of buying an official ball for about $100 bucks you can pick up a replica game ball for around $30. Swingman jerseys also look good signed and cost far less than authtic jerseys.

Square hardwood tiles are cheap & look good. I agree swingman & replica ball way to go. Hard to get much value (if looking to resell) on a ball that costs $100.

I agree with the hardwood tile suggestion, they display real nice and look great signed with a sharpie.

Thanks for the input, it is appreciated. I am definitely going to go with a ball - a floor tile would be nice but I think the basketball will look better once displayed. I also like the idea of a jersey.... Might do that for Tristan Thompson. I'm pretty sure I am going to go with this ball:

I'm also going to purchase a sharpie paint pen so the autograph doesn't fade over time. I am not going to sell the ball and it is only $24.99 before shipping which is very doable.
