    What type of pen do you guys use for Baseball autos?

    As question asks... I use a blue pallpoint pen.. but some dont come out as nice as others. I usually scribble on something at first to get the pen going..

    But what brand pen do you guys use? I heard a BIC blue ballpoint pen is good but I can't seem to find any BLUE BIC's!! Only black ones.

    Currently I use a blue Paper Mate Write Bros. Grip M.

    Bic blue ballpoint or Uniball Jetstreams. Always blue ink. The Jetstreams are nice but skipping can be an issue if the player holds the pen at a weird angle.

    To be honest, I don't IP that much but usually it is whatever I got.

    Anthony Lerew - I found a BIC pen on the ground that I used
    Terry Ryan - I handed him my pen and he refused and used his own, thankfully he did
    John Anderson - used a really crappy pen (Uniball maybe???) didn't soak into the leather and got smeared badly

    Gary Gaitti, Scott Erickson, Ron Mahay - all used a sharpie

    AJ Pettersen gave me his pen and that is my new IP pen for balls and index cards...

    Yes I set out certain pens for my autographs. Makes the history of the pen a little cooler lol

    ritz carlton pens, no joke, they are great

    I lose sleep at night because I've been in the league five years and we still haven't won a championship.
    I wake up in the middle night frustrated because we lost out in the first round and
    I want to see our players hoist the Stanley Cup.
    That's why I lose sleep. I don't worry about 13 months from now not having a paycheck."

    balls is usually a blue pen, which I have an autograph pen that AJ Pettersen gave me, but IDK where I put it, I have to go find it
