Default Write on back of pictures?

I recently bought a nice lot of snapshots, I identified most of the players, would it be ok to write the players name on back or is that defacing them?

I personally have no problem at all with writing on the back of photos, especially if it identifies the player/s in the picture. In fact, I wish more people would identify the people in pictures they take.

For snapshots, I personally wouldn't have a problem with it, but I would not use a ballpoint or other pen that could indent the back and cause raised areas on the surface of the photo.

For someone who's a snapshot collector..I would leave it if it's vintage. If it's more modern, I'd used a pencil. Just no sharpies!

Default Snapshots

I personally wouldn’t write on them, but agree with Gary that if you do document the players name write in pencil.

Or maybe apply a small acid-free sticker to the back, with the info on that?

These aren't cards. I don't think there should be any problem writing the names on the back in pencil.

Future collectors will likely appreciate it, if they ever make it back into the hobby again.

I think neat pencil identifiers on back is fine.

I've written the names on small 'post it' notes and have affixed those to the back
