1992-93 Pinnacle Hockey - question to the hockey card/autograph collectors
It has been a long time since I have been on the forum and I have rekindled the collecting bug after clearing the basement and finding my album with my 1992-93 Pinnacle hockey album which I believe I put together last century. With 1971 Topps baseball being the last set I put together, it is clear I always dug the black borders. I looked through it and saw I had autographs from Roenick, McSorley, Sergei Nemchinov, and Dale Hunter among a couple others and am now trying to get the whole set signed. I have sent away for my first ever private signings and am learning more about Canadian postal customs requirements than I ever thought I would but am having genuine fun putting this together. And am looking for advice.
My question: In a lot of these cards (LA Kings, Maple Leafs, Rangers etc) players are head to toe in black or dark blue and black ink is a non-starter. On the submission forms I can choose ink color and am curious what others have used. Is red a viable option? I have seen silver and gold and certain photos and am wondering if that is viiable.
Apologies for the newb questions but I am submitting Ray Bourque, Adam Oates, and Brett Hull next week and would like to include the Doug Gilmour but am waiting on figuring out the correct ink choice against the dark uniform before dropping the cash. Any advice would be appreciated. And delighted to be back! Once I remember how to post photos I will get a couple up if anyone interested.
