Removing Autographs from Jerseys


Recommended Posts

I was thinking on bidding on a specific/somewhat rare jersey on eBay, the only problem is that the jersey was autographed by several players for said team. Normally, that wouldn't be an issue, except the jersey has been washed and the autographs have become very faded. Being not the biggest fan of autographs in the first place, I was wondering if anyone has ever successfully removed autographs from a uniform before.

Here's a picture of the jersey in question:


Thanks for the help.

I would bleach them with a spot pen...

I was thinking that too... but do you think that would damage the jersey? And what precautions would you take to make sure that the bleach doesn't bleed through to the other parts of the jersey?

Just out of curiousity, what jersey are you bidding on?

How about on a tackle-twill number written with a sharpie?

Goof Off works on the hang tags for me when i get them from goodwill---you can try that.

What type of fabric is the OP's jersey, is it a NFL Mesh, MLB Double Knight, NHL Sweater?

Goof off may work with some scrubbing on the base fabric, but not quite sure.
