In 1947, Jackie Robinson was called up to the Major Leagues by the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking the color barrier and providing much needed momentum to the desegregation movement that extended well beyond baseball.
The Blackwing Volume 42 is a tribute to Jackie Robinson and those who pursue their passions, creative or otherwise, regardless of the obstacles in their way. It features our balanced graphite, a blue imprint and eraser, road gray ferrule, and the iconic red 42.
Blackwings are coveted by writers and illustrators alike who prefer a soft, dark graphite. They feature an iconic shape and unique rectangular eraser which is replaceable and can be pulled out from the body.Length: 7.9 inches
