Volumes 42 Limited Edition Blackwing Pencil

Every quarter Palomino releases a new Limited Edition pencil. Palomino produces the classic (and excellent) Blackwing 602 pencil- known as the pencil used by famous authors, poets, scholars, and artists worldwide.

The Fall Quarter brings us #42- the number of Jackie Robinson. Robinson (1919-1972) broke the color barrier in National League Baseball when he played first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.

Robinson won the Rookie of the Year Award that year and went on to be an All-Star for 6 consecutive years. His number, 42, was retired from MLB in 1977.
