I know I threatened to put Mark Ellis' face on my replacement purple Cyclone, but I changed my mind.
I finally got all of a Discraft hotstamp off. It was the first one that wasn't black ink and I think that helped it a lot. The stamp was super deep though, which lead to some bleeds, but it's not too bad. I also found a no name x-out champ Teebird that my Pops was throwing and liking, so I'm going to dye Barney Fife on it some time this year.
Forgot to mention, I did this one different. I didn't hot dip, I used rubbing alcohol and liquid Rit. It more of darkened the purple, rather than put a black stamp on it. It was less clean up too.
