View Full Version : Need some quick advice on a pen for a basketball

Hey guys,

I recently purchased a Nike Baller red white and blue mini ball to get signed by a former ABA player and I was hoping to get the white panel signed in blue. However, the ball is quite textured, so I fear a blue Sharpie would not do the job. I've dabbled with paint pens in the past but need a recommendation for a good BLUE one to use that will not be super messy or hard to get started (if possible). Any quick help would be appreciated - here is a link for the ball too:

Im partial to silver sharpies. That in the red or blue panel would look very nice imo

Not a big silver Sharpie fan to be honest. I used to use one occasionally on black baseball bats but I don't know how well it would work on this ball. I fear it might rub off.

Then id go with a blue sharpie pen and put it in a case afterwards.

It doe snot rub off silver sharpie works great and there is a trick to fattening the tip to make the signature thicker
