Question: I was thinking about having some of my collectible tickets signed. Is it better to have them signed on the front or back of the ticket?
Answer: This is a good question. With anything, a ticket, a letter, a check, etc, it is usually best when the signature appears on the front because of the presentation value. In other words, if you decided to frame the piece or have it sitting on your desk, the autograph appears in plain sight without having to turn the piece around. You could make an argument that certain pieces are best "not disturbed" on the front because you want the viewer to see or be able to read the face of the item. For example, some of the artwork on the front of Super Bowl tickets can be quite eye-appealing and you might not want to have the artwork covered in black Sharpie. That said; the general rule remains in place. It is usually best to have the athlete sign the face of the item.
