Just Arrived: Think Limited Edition Fountain Pens Honoring Mickey Mantle

The Pear Tree Pen Company is proud to present the Mickey Mantle Limited Edition Fountain Pen, by Think. We just received our shipment and I was quite surprised by how attractive the pens are. If I could be excused for the bad baseball pun, I really believe that Think hit a "home run" with these pens.

The acrylic resin is awesome, and the deep navy pinstripes are as true to Yankee Blue as can be. Of course, the pens come in handsome presentation boxes, specially designed for the Mickey Mantle LE. Think's previous Limited Edition Pen honored Jimi Hendrix. Although the Hendrix pen (in my opinion) wasn't half as nice as the new Mickey Mantle writing instrument, it sold out in a matter of weeks. I would be very surprised if these Mickey Mantle pens last that long.

"After I hit a home run I had a habit of running the bases with my head down. I figured the pitcher already felt bad enough without me showing him up rounding the bases." - Mickey Mantle.

The Mickey Mantle THINK Limited Edition pen honors the most beloved ballplayer of all time. He was the most popular player in the history of baseball and was the best teammate that anyone ever had. He was bigger than life and the true idol of all baseball fans.

The Mickey Mantle pen is artisan made using custom Italian resins. The cap and blind cap are rich swirls of vintage New York Yankees navy. The barrel is made from luminescent ivory resin with navy pinstripes. A three dimensional bat adorned with Mantle's "7" comprise the clip. Mickey Mantle's signature highlights the band.

Accents are silver vermeil. Limited Edition 777 Fountain Pens (Medium nib only) and 777 Rollerballs.
