Joe DiMaggio’s legacy is cemented by numbers. In a historic 13 year career, his teams won 10 American League pennants and 9 World Series championships. He appeared in 13 All-Star games and was named American League MVP 3 times. However, the number he is best known for is 56.

The Blackwing 56 pays tribute to Joe DiMaggio during the 75th anniversary of his famous 56 game hitting streak. The blue pinstripe barrel is a nod to the uniform he wore with the utmost class and dignity, while the gold imprint and ferrule draw inspiration from the Commissioner’s Trophy his Yankee squad hoisted at the end of that magical 1941 season. This pencil features a firm graphite core and Blackwing’s signature extendable eraser, ideal for scoring a ballgame. 

12 pencils per pack. Limited quantities available.
