Anyone know of a source for a baseball pen blank like the one on the middle pen on this Exoticblanks page. I messaged them but have not received a reply. I purchased one a year or so ago but I can't find another one anywhere.

Hey Mannie, the PSI website says they were cast in house using paper cutouts and not available. (It's in the customer Q&A in the starter kit for the baseball pens.)

Sorry I did not see your note, Mannie!!

The info above is correct, those pics were supplied by PSI, but the blanks are not being made. A couple of our guys have made blanks to fit this pen, I did a search which produced these blanks and some other info that is not real useful, but you can find the search here:

Not a lot of results, so worth looking at.

Again, sorry I missed your question!!

I use this one made by Ohio Penworks. Ed probably has it in stock, Blue and Green.
If not check Phio Penworks on Etsy or facebook for something similar. I think Mike may be on vacationnext week, but he'll come up with something.

Ed and Gary, thanks for the links and info, but not quite what I’m looking for.
I’ll see what I can make for myself.

So if you are going to label cast that blank (green one with baseballs) there is a trick you may or may not know. The trick is to "over dimension" the label and interspace the baseballs. Then cut around the balls. You will not see the seem. I demoed this last month in Chattanooga at the AAW.

Here is a sample. As you can see the second row will roll into the space on the left. This will give you a pattern where finding the seem will be harder to find. There is some math involved (or just trial and error). Hope this help or pm or call me to explain if more is needed. I cannot stand seeing them seems. Most label casters just leave it and try to cover with a clip.

Thank you for the tip, Mark. It may be a week or so before I get around to attempt making the blank. If I have any questions then, I’ll get in touch with you.
