And the silvers were worthless after signing felt. G was even annoyed that I primed the tip of the paint pen once before I handed it to him... it wasn't completely saturated because I was being forced through the line. That's a lot of money for a signature... it damn well better be the way I want it.
My friend got his home Giroux jersey signed on the numbers and wanted to have it done in black. Not a chance. Before he could even make that request, G was half way done his autograph in blue.
Make sure you are deliberate about requesting a color or handing them the pen you want them to use BEFORE you give them your item to be signed.
Yeah, one time a player used a different color marker than I wanted so ever since then I would hand them the marker first and then my item.
I know you said Giroux realized the auto was screwed up but at what point did he think it would have been a good idea to go over the auto with a blue paint pen. At least sign it in a different spot and then you could remove the crappy one.
