    I always buy an official ball from that sport. Not that I would sell any of my graphs but they are worth more on an official ball. If I'm getting an entire team like at NY Giants training camp I get a white panel ball. For photo's a sharpie with whatever color will stand out. I try to get some dark in the photo because I like the look of a graph in silver. I also like to use a sharpie that is one of the colors of the team, like blue for Duke. For a basketball I prefer a silver deco paint pen. Always go with oil based as opposed to acrylic based. Water will wash away something signed with an acrylic base. Make sure when using a paint pen that it is properly charged/prepped. Also remember when using either a sharpie or paint pen that you give it enough time to dry. Paint pens take a lot longer than sharpies to dry. Also never leave anything signed in a hot car and do not place anything over the top of the signature. I have seen too many peoples auto's ruined by doing that. Those are just my preferences.

    id say you need to get streaky autos, bendable cardboard and try to hold the sharpie upside down for best results
