This is a handmade pen using a cut from Mickey Mantles uniform jersey embedded into the pen body and encased by a clear resin. The cloth piece is just below the number. The lower section is made from a piece of wood cut from a stadium seat from the "old" Yankee stadium. I include an information card with these details. I personally turn both pen sections to shape on a lathe, sand and polish to a glass-like finish.
The pen can easily be configured as a rollerball or fountain pen (fountain pen nib shown in the photo). I can ship it as either, just let me know your preference when ordering - fountain or rollerball.
The fountain version includes a #6 German made, Iridium tip, medium size nib. I include 5 international size ink cartridges. The rollerball version includes a premium German made rollerball cartridge. The cartridges are available at larger office supply stores and will interchange with Monte Blanc and other brands. Ordering fountain or rollerball cartridges on-lne is also an easy choice with many options in ink types and colors.
The metal components are antique pewter.
Perfect gift for the baseball ethusiast or collector of sports artifacts and memorabilia.
