Choosing a typeface with which to brand Barry Bonds’ ball

Barry Bonds’ record-breaking home run ball is going to be branded with an asterisk, then put in the hall of fame. Is anyone else itching to see what typeface is used to set the brand? I also wonder how it is going to be set – will the brand be burned into the ball? Printed with ink? If I had to choose a typeface for this, I might pick something like Didot, with it’s elegant lines and big round points. What face would you choose?
