Retro 51 Tornado Ballpoint Pen, Escape
Limited Edition, Serial #22 of 951 Pens Worldwide
Leaving planet Earth is a rare achievement few have done but it may be possible in the near future. Exploring space has fascinated us for the last century and steps are bringing us closer to this feat for non-astronauts like us. We can dream though right? The latest Tornado Popper brings you the ACES suit into your hands. It's been lacquered in "International Orange" and then printed with the iconic NASA "meatball" logo plus Commander and Space Shuttle Patches. It is finished with matte black accents with serial number engraved on the top ring and astronaut helmet on the finial. Finally, it's packaged in a white tube with graphic orange label making this ballpoint even more unique. Pick one up and prepare for take-off!
*Survival gear including life raft not included.
