Default IP 8x10 Photofile Auto question... help.

Okay so I am attending an in store signing for Mat Latos of the Cincinnati Reds and I ordered this photo from Photofile to get signed:



I was wondering what color you guys thought I should request for the auto.
Thinking I will ask him to sign just above the pitching mound between his feet, where the photofile web address is.

Thought about a Red Sharpie but thinking about it some more thinking a blue one might be better.

I am VERY excited about this signing and I am wanting to get it just right.

So...Red, Blue or Black Sharpie??

I voted black which I think is best but blue would do fine too. I strongly advise not to use red.

I'd have to agree with the post above, red is not the best idea. Personally, I think black would look very nice.

Also, I've noticed Mat Latos has a tendency to sign closer to the bottom of things anyway - you might not have to ask.

Albeit the reds color scheme I always prefer blue over black. Like the others said, stay far far away from red. Especially red sharpies. If its a dark photo silver looks good and so does gold, but all other photos I'd try to stick with blue. And black as my second option personally.

blue or black will stand out better, red will get drowned out , too much red in picture, his jersey, background crowd, and even on the wall in background where you want to get the sig.

Personally, I would go with blue. Over time, black has a tendency to turn somewhat purple when exposed to sunlight, which I think using blue would avoid. Regardless, I'd definitely stay away from red. There's so much red in that picture already that the auto probably won't stand out very well. Enjoy the signing!

Great info guys...Didn't think about the RED getting drowned out with all the Red in the photo already. I will be going with a fresh blue sharpie!

I think I am going to see if Mat will include "#TeamLatos" under his name as well.
I am an avid Twitter follower of the Reds & Mat, and when he is pitching the Reds & other fans like myself use that hashtag as a rally cry!

Besides it would make it unique for my collection.
A 1 of 1 sort of thing! LOL!!

Thanks again for all the info!
