Rub the new shiny card with baby powder then wipe off excess this removes the "slickness" that causes sharpie to fade and smudge. If on a baseball yes you have to absolutly make sure it is official or it will smudge. I have real baseballs that look like the day they were signed where as some of my ink signed balls not so much.

If the sharpie is faded on cardboard it could have just been a faded sharpie. I suggest anyone who uses a sharpie test it first or you'll be surprised with a streaky signature when the time comes.
