Don't have a picture handy but I have found the Papermate ones to be of good quality. Just make sure you have a piece of paper or something you can scribble on "get the ink running" just before the signing.

Uniball blue Jetstream Bolds (1.0) size look the best by far. From my experience, Bic will almost always fade in time. The Jetstream pops far better than any other pen out there on a baseball.

The jetstreams are nice. Thats what Fergie Jenkins always wants to use at his signings.

Ever since I talked to one of the guys at Steiner Sports, and he told me they use Cristal Bics for their signed baseballs... I switched to them and haven't had an issue.

Does the Jetstream ink stick to the ball?

Looks like it would very easily smear but a pic can be fooling. It sure does pop off the ball though.
