    Opinion on paint marker color for signing a jersey?
    SILVER or GOLD?
    I would go with black over silver or gold, especially if they are signing on the white number.
    I have had autographs done with a black sharpie….
    I have noticed that over time they fade or bleed out….
    The autographs that I have where the gold or silver paint markers were used look as new as the day they were signed.
    Fortunately that has yet to happen to the 3 jerseys that we have signed. I have never seen a jersey signed in gold or silver but I would have to agree with BloodyHorns, I would think that the gold would stand out better against a white background. Good luck!

    I have many jerseys signed in black. A few have faded slightly, some not at all & an autographed Moss jersey I had completely faded away. But mine aren't out in display where the sun can get to them shining through the window. If that happens, black is sure to fade as I have seen on a Culpepper autographed football I bought when we drafted him.

    I have hundreds of autographed helmets. The black looks goodif it is signed on the horn, but not as nice if signed on the purple.

    IMO, the best looking ones are ones that are signed in gold on the purple.

    I like getting autographs, but only if I obtain them myself.
    I don't see the value of buying it...
    It doesn't mean that much.

    As for the fading, I haven't had any fade, but there is two windows in my Vikings room but I don't even consider them windows since they are so small.
    All my jerseys are signed with black Sharpie.
    My McKinnie one I had signed twice because the first time he signed it on the shoulder in silver :P

    As for helmets, I agree with Singer.
    Black will only look good if its on the white horn.
    If signing on the purple part of the helmet, it is best to go with gold or silver.

    I've got a picture of the four of them coming out of the tunnel during the Super Bowl in New Orleans against Miami, signed by all four. Supposedly, being able to get Gary Larsen's autograph on anything is pretty tough.

    I've heard/read that before as well. I had heard several years back that he had health issues.


    Bud Grant is another tough one to get. I have a few things signed by him.

    I do collect stuff though, got two Wheaties boxes (unopened) from 87 and 91 that are my prized pieces.

    I thought you had a Favre signed jersey from the '95 season?

    LOL, not quite.
    I do have a Vikings flag that has been flying (non stop) in front of my house for over 8 years.
    All faded, but still flapping in all her glory.

    Gonna be sad to take her down my friend.

    I think I have found the epitomy of sad..........

    Naked Ned, posting something in everythread like a Newb.
    Worst part of it is, he didn't even come up with it on his own.......He had to steal it from a guy in the chat.
