But not all blue pens are created equal. Each pen writes with slightly different results.

Blue holds color longer.

Black will oxidize and fade to brown over time.

Besides the fact that blue tends to be generally more appealing to the eye. There is a lot more to it. It tends to streak less, it will still show up against dark colors (if you cant get a silver/gold in the celebs hand), and it has fewer dyes in the formula. The dyes are a big deal when ageing, which is why black will sometimes separate or oxidize fading to that ugly red/brown, or getting that yellow halo around the edge. The reason its a dealers choice is scientific and therefore the same reason it should be the collectors choice.
